Vance, B. H., D. V. S.
The following data is extracted from A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans.
B. H. Vance, D. V. S., is regarded as the foremost veterinarian in Cloud County, and is now successfully established with his partner, Doctor Kiger, as proprietors of the Concordia Veterinary Hospital.
This hospital had been in existence at Concordia since it was established by Doctor Colderwell in 1904. In 1912 Doctor Colderwell sold the business and good will to Doctor Vance. In 1916 Doctor Vance took as his partner Dr. G. J. Kiger. The firm had a very extensive and successful practice in Cloud County and adjacent territory, and without doubt they stand as the leaders of the profession in that part of the state.
Doctor Vance was born in Missouri in 1882 and was reared and educated in his native state. He took his professional training in the Kansas Veterinary College, where he was graduated in 1911 and in the following year came to Concordia. Doctor Vance is the son of Isaac and Irene Vance of Missouri. In 1905 he married Miss Opal Gaines. They are the parents of two children: Leo and Charles.
