Biography of Edward Richter, M. D.

Dr. Edward Richter, physician and surgeon of St. Louis, and now serving as coroner for the City of St. Louis, was graduated from Beaumont Medical College with the class of 1897 and through the intervening period has practiced in this city. He was here born July 4, 1868, a son of William and Caroline (Hess) Richter. The father’s birth occurred in Germany and in young manhood he came to the new world, settling in St. Louis, where he engaged in the merchant tailoring business, remaining active in that line to the time of his death, which occurred in 1897. His wife was born in Edwardsville, Illinois, and they were married in St. Louis. She survived her husband for about three years, passing away in 1900. Their family numbered four sons and two daughters.

This constituted the initial step that led him eventually to take up the study of medicine, which he followed in the Beaumont Medical College, being numbered among its alumni of 1897. After his graduation he was appointed physician for the House of Refuge and thus continued for six years, at the same time giving his attention to the private practice which he was steadily building up. He now has a large and gratifying private practice and at all times he keeps in touch with the trend of modern professional thought and progress. He is quick to adopt any new idea or method that he believes will prove of real benefit...
