Thomas J. Beattie

Thomas J. Beattie was born in Cass County, Missouri, July 27, 1863.  He spent his boyhood in the little town, and received his early education in the public schools.  He then entered the University of Missouri, where he took the classical course, and in 1881 came to Kansas City, where he has lived ever since. 

     Deciding upon the study of medicine, Dr. Beattie entered the Kansas City Medical College, and was graduated in 1881.  He then took a course in the University of New York city, from where he was graduated in 1885.  Returning to Kansas City, Dr. Beattie commenced the practice of medicine.  His hobby is pelvic surgery, and he holds the professorship on the diseases of women in the Kansas City Medical College.  While he has not absolutely specialized along these lines, he has taken post-graduate courses in the East.

     Dr. Beattie is a member of the Academy of Medicine, the Jackson County Medical Society, the Missouri State Medical Association, and the American Medical Association.  He was one of the early members of the University Club, belongs to the Driving Club, and is a thirty-second degree Mason, Scottish Rite.  He married Miss Clara Chouteau in 1889, a member of the old St. Louis family.
