A well-known and popular physician of Baker City, and one whose kind attentive treatment of the sick and geniality of manner towards the well have made him deservedly the favorite of all classes, has made this city his home for many years. He began the practice of his profession before he was twenty-four, having been a graduate of the Medical Department of the Willamette University, also of the Medical Department of Columbia College, of Newark. He for many years did most of the surgical work of what is now Baker and Malheur Counties, and a portion of Union, being an indefatigable worker, and a master of his profession. At present he occupies the position of chief of staff of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, with credit to himself and the institution.
