Excerpt from The Journal of Ophthalmology, Otology and Laryngology, 1912, Vol. 18: Devoted to the Interests of Exclusivists, Specialists and General Practitioners
Graduating from the Medical College of the State University of Iowa in 1888 he felt that he must have further technical knowledge and more practical experience before assuming the responsibilities of private practice. He therefore entered St. Luke's Hospital, Of Chicago, in 1889, as assistant superintendent where the opportunities for the ob servation and practice of actual surgery were very great. The follow ing year was devoted to a postgraduate course at the Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia with special attention to the diseases and surgery of the eye, which had begun to interest him.
Feeling that he was now equipped to begin the independent practice of medicine he opened an Office in Hutchinson, Kansas, doing a general practice but devoting special attention to eye work, a feature which proved so successful that he decided to take the course offered by the New York Ophthalmic Hospital College.
Having completed his studies in New York he went to Boston in 1892 and has since devoted his time and attention to refraction and the diseases and surgery of the eye exclusively.
