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.
