"JAMES P. ATWOOD, M.D. - One of the most successful physicians of Baker City, Oregon, is the gentleman whose name appears as the heading of this sketch. A careful and conscientious gentleman of temperate habits, and thoroughly reliable in all public and professional as well as private matters, he enjoys the confidence of the public, and has a large practice. He was born in Wisconsin in 1846, but was educated in Oregon, at Sublimity and at Corvallis, and took his degree in medicine from the medical department of the Willamette University at Salem, and from the medical department of the Columbia College, New York. His father, A.F. Atwood, a pioneer of 1853, lived on his farm four miles from Corvallis until 1868, when he removed to Walla Walla county, Washington Territory where he died March 24, 1889.
"Dr. Atwood's first field was at La Grande; but in 1871 he removed to his present location, where he has since been actively employed. Baker City was then but a village of some seven hundred inhabitants, although money was then in abundant circulation. Mining interests still dominate, and will always be pre-eminent. The Doctor was married in 1882 to Miss Florence Thompson of San Francisco, California, and has one child living."
