Biographical Sketch of G. J. Kiger, D. V. M.

G. J. Kiger, D. V. M., who is associated with Dr. B. H. Vance as proprietors of the Concordia Veterinary Hospital, is a veterinary of thorough training and of unusual natural gifts for successful professional work.

He was born in Kansas in 1889, a son of G. W. and Hannah Kiger. His parents came to Kansas in 1878, and located on a homestead in this state. Doctor Kiger had one sister, Hazel E., now deceased. Doctor Kiger graduated from the Kansas Veterinary College with the class of 1914, and had since been closely identified with his profession and in 1916 entered into practice with Doctor Vance. This firm had a modernly equipped hospital large enough for the accommodation of a dozen animals at a time. Their practice it is said is valued at $5,000 a year.

In 1911 Doctor Kiger married Miss Daisy Davidson. Their one child is Darrel J.
