Biography of Clyde Magill, Dr.

One of the younger members of the medical profession in Sedgwick County, Dr. Clyde Magill had found his work at Clearwater, not far from his birthplace, and in the past four years had enjoyed a rapidly accumulating practice and is accounted one of the ablest doctors in that vicinity.

He was born on a farm twelve miles east of Wichita December 6, 1887. His father, Silas Magill, is an old settler of Sedgwick County, having come to Kansas from Illinois, in 1871, and taking up a homestead in Sedgwick County. In the years that followed he proved one of the leading farmers and stock growers of the county, and is still living here.

Educated in country schools, Doctor Magill early formed an ambition for a professional career, and advanced his training by a course in Fairmount College at Wichita. He then entered the medical department of the Kansas State University, where he was graduated M. D. in 1912. This was followed by a year as interne in the General Hospital of Kansas City, Missouri, and then well equipped for active work, he opened his office at Clearwater in 1913.

Doctor Magill is a member of the Sedgwick County and Kansas State Medical Societies, and is affiliated with Unity Lodge No. 273 Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons, and with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. On June 25, 1913, soon after beginning practice, he married Miss Erma Keister of Wichita. They have two children, Russell and Jean.
