Albert Smith

DR. ALBERT SMITH, a successful young medical practitioner of Parsons, Kansas, is well known to the residents of the city where he has been located ever since his boyhood days. He made careful preparation for the medical profession in some of the best schools of medicine in this country, and in practice has given evidence of skill not equaled by men of many more years' experience.

Dr. Smith was born in Erie, Kansas, July 24, 1870, and is a son of Irvin Smith, now a druggist of Parsons. He was a small boy when he accompanied his parents to Parsons, where he received his primary education in the public schools, and under the private tutelage of Prof. Hickson, of Parsons. He then took a course of study in the State University of Kansas, at Lawrence, which was supplemented by a course in the Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) School of Pharmacy, where he graduated with the class of 1890. He then became associated with his father, in the drug business, at Parsons and continued thus from 1890 until 1892. He then attended lectures at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, in Chicago, Illinois; and took a second course of lectures at the Chicago Homeopathic Medical College, graduating with the class of 1895. He began the practice of medicine at Parsons, in the spring of 1895, and has been successful beyond his fondest expectations.

In 1896, Dr. Smith was united in marriage with Nannie E. Cowden, of Parsons. Fraternally, the Doctor is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America; and the B. P. 0. E. Politically, he is a Republican.
