A large crowd gathered early at Hampton Park in downtown Camden on Wednesday afternoon for a 3 p.m. ceremony honoring a long-time physician known as “Dr. Mac.” About 70 people sat in chairs while another 30 to 40 stood across the street from the house where Dr. Francis N. McCorkle first lived in Camden. Several people were on the agenda to speak.
