He is a native of Ohio, and from 1884 to 1887, was a member of the surveying party that laid out the railroad in this western country. In 1892 he took up the study of medicine, and in 1896 graduated from the Medical Department of the Oregon University, winning the Saylor prize for the highest general average. During the last year he acted as house surgeon at the Good Samaritan Hospital, and then for a year was surgeon for the Columbia & Astoria Railroad. A year ago he located here and since that time has won his way to the confidence of the people, and gained the esteem of his brother practitioners to an extent which cannot but be exceedingly gratifying. He is a member of the staff of St. Elizabeth's Hospital, his training especially adapting him for surgical work."
