IT WOULD NOT have been surprising to find Dr. Milton A. Wohl, a distinguished physician, repairing a tractor on his farm in Schwenksville, putting in a crop of corn, cutting down a tree or working a piece of wood in his shop. Dr. Wohl was a prominent orthopedic surgeon, former president of the Philadelphia County Medical Society, and a highly regarded teacher. But he was also a farmer, a handyman who could take anything mechanical apart and fix it, a historian, music lover, fisherman and world traveler.
