D., previous to the World War, began the practice of medicine in Springfield, that has been continued with pronounced success in Chicopee, where his professional abilities and his proven skill have received recognition throughout an extensive district.

A prominent and thoroughly equipped physician, he has the highest regard of his medical associates and the general public.

After a year in Williston Academy, he prepared for his profession in the Medical School of Georgetown University, where he was graduated in 1913, with his degree of Doctor of Medicine, and he then served as an interne at Hampden Hospital. Dr. Moriarty commenced his practice in general medicine in Springfield, where his headquarters were established from 1914 to 1917, and he then removed to Chicopee, where he has a large practice and is a member of the Mercy Hospital staff.

Enlisting in the World War with the United States Medical Corps as first lieutenant, July 25, 1917, Dr. Moriarty went overseas as a captain in the 76th Division in July, 1918; and later, with the 4th Corps, he was stationed in Germany; he received his discharge July 1, 1919.
