Dr. William Goodell was born in Malta on October 17, 1829. In 1847 he moved to attend Williams College in Massachusetts and graduated in 1851; after which he attended Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, graduating in 1854 with a degree of Doctor of Medicine. He married Caroline Darlington Bell, the daughter of Judge Thomas S. Bell of West Chester, PA, in 1857. For a short time, Dr. Goodell had a medical practice in West Chester, PA in the Chester County Medical Society. When the Civil War broke out Dr. Goodell was able to avoid the draft because of myopia (nearsightedness); however he did join the Union Army in 1863 as a contract surgeon with a pay of $100.00 monthly. He was trained in St. Louis, Missouri and at the Turners Lane Hospital in Philadelphia, and became the Acting Surgeon at Camp Paoli (Parole) in West Chester. Camp Paoli was a 53 bed hospital in West Chester for wounded Prisoners of War. After the Civil War, Goodell accepted a position as the first Master to the Preston Retreat in Philadelphia. In 1870, he took on a position as Lecturer on the Diseases of Women and later Clinical Professor of Gynecology (1874) at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
