Moses Thurston Runnels

Moses Thurston Runnels, a physician who has acquired a large practice in Kansas City, and a man of more than ordinary attainments, was born December 26, 1849, in Licking County, Ohio.  He was reared on a farm, and was educated at Oberlin, where he attended four years.

     He began the study of medicine under his brother, Dr. O. S. Runnels, of Indianapolis, Ind., and in 1874 completed a course in the Cleveland Homeopathic Hospital College, which distinguished him with several prizes and positions of honor.  His practice of medicine was begun at Franklin, Ind.  After eighteen months he took post-graduate courses in New York city, and returned to become the partner of his brother at Indianapolis, with whom he was associated until 1884.

     In June, 1885, he came to Kansas City, where, besides attending to his practice, he occupies chairs in several medical colleges, and has contributed largely to the literature of medicine.

     Dr. Runnels was married in Indianapolis, to Miss Emily Lamb Johnson.  Three children were born to them, two of whom are living.
