Guy Bateman Mitchell, the well-known young physician,
was born in Baltimore, Maryland. His father, John T. Mitchell,
was the head of the largest fruit-packing and canning company in the
country at that time.
The senior Mitchell died when the subject of
this sketch was still in his infancy. A few years later the
family removed to Abilene, Kansas, where the young Guy went to the
public schools, and later had the advantage of a high school course.
After quitting the High School, he decided
upon the profession of medicine, and, coming to Kansas City, entered
the University Medical College. He was graduated with high
honors, and received his degree, and has ever since practiced here.
Dr. Mitchell's success has been due to
ability more than anything else, but also to high-mindedness, honesty,
and loyalty to the highest standards of his profession.
Dr. Mitchell is examining physician for a
number of secret societies, and is also a member of the Jackson County
Medical Society and the Missouri Medical Association. His one
hobby is athletics, and for a year or so now has been a star member of
the Kansas City Athletic Club.
