George B. Norberg

George B. Norberg was born at Galva, Illinois, July 11, 1872.  Mr. Norberg's family left Illinois when he was thirteen years old and located in Smith Center, Kas.  He went to the public schools of both Illinois and Kansas during his residence in those States, and went to work in a drug store in Smith Centre while a pupil in the High School of the town.  He started to the Kansas University in 1889, and left that institution with the title of Ph. G. in 1893.  He came to Kansas City immediately upon his graduation, and returned to work in the drug business.  While employed at this business he took up the study of medicine at the University Medical College.  He graduated from the medical college March 20, 1897, and at once entered into practice as a physician.

     He was appointed Assistant Police Surgeon for a term of one year, and at its expiration was made House Surgeon at the Missouri Pacific Hospital.  He held the place two years, and then returned to general practice.

     Dr. Norberg is a fellow of the Kansas City Academy of Medicine, and adjunct to chair of gynecology at the University Medical College.  He is also affiliated with the Maccabees, and holds membership in the Evanston Golf Club.

     Dr. Norberg was married December 11, 1901, to Miss Jeanette Lockwood.
