William J. Frick

William J. Frick was born in Montgomery City, Missouri, November 3, 1867, but his youth was spent in Oak Grove, Lafayette County.  He attended the public schools in Oak Grove, then went to an academy in Lexington, and from there entered William Jewell College at Liberty.

     Deciding upon medicine as a profession he enrolled himself as a student in the Kansas City Medical College, from which institution he graduated in 1888.
     Dr. Frick has always practiced here, and few young men stand higher in their profession.  He has been connected with every hospital in the city at one time or another and is now surgeon of St. Joseph's Hospital.  He is also Professor of Anatomy in the Kansas City Medical College.

     He belongs to the local medical organizations and also the state and national bodies.

     Dr. Frick has taken post-graduate courses in the hospitals of Chicago and New York, and is an eager and never-ceasing student.  He is unmarried, and makes his home with his aged mother.
