Herman W. Bundy, M. D. As a physician and surgeon Doctor Bundy enjoys the complete confidence and most of the patronage of the community in and around Pesotum, where he has practiced actively for the last five years.

Doctor Bundy is a Kansas man by birth, having been born at Nickerson, March 11, 1879. His parents, Isaac Newton and Helena (Smithson) Bundy, were both born in Ohio. His father was an attorney who enjoyed a good practice and name as an orator in eastern Illinois, and it is recalled that he stumped the district for Joe Cannon when that Illinois celebrity made his first race for Congress. From Illinois Isaac N. Bundy moved to Nickerson, Kansas, and he died at Hutchinson in that state at the age of forty-three. His wife died in 1882. They had three children: Dr. C. D. Bundy, of Sadorus; Ralph P., an attorney at Zionsville, Indiana; and Dr. Herman W. Bundy.

Doctor Bundy grew up in the home of his maternal grandparents in Champaign County. He was still continuing his studies in high school when at the age of eighteen he enlisted with Company M at Champaign for service in the Spanish American War. After he was mustered out he returned home and finished the high school course at Tolono. In 1901 he entered the University of Illinois, took three years of special work preparatory to a medical career and then for four years was in the Illinois College of Physicians and Surgeons at Chicago, the medical department of the State University. He received his degree from that institution in 1907 and in 1908 began practice at Pesotum with Doctor Hoffman. A year later he located at Sadorus, but in 1912, Doctor Hoffman having died, he returned to Pesotum and took up the practice of that veteran physician and has since become well established in his profession, his name being associated with ability and conscientious service all over southwestern Champaign County.

September 29, 1909, Doctor Bundy married Miss Edith Stone, of Tolono, where she was born. They have one child, Winford Newton, born February 3, 1914. Doctor Bundy is a Republican, a member of the Masonic Lodge, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of America, and he and his wife are members and attendants of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
