William Thomas Stark

William Thomas Stark was born in Independence, Missouri, September 18, 1857.  The family removed to this city while Mr. Stark was a boy, and he became a student at the local public schools.  He afterwards attended the Jesuit's school at St. Mary's, Kansas.  After leaving there he took a course in medicine at the Kansas City Medical School with a post-graduate course in the medical department of Washington University, St. Louis.  Mr. Stark engaged in the practice of medicine in this city in 1879, since which time he has been continuously engaged at his profession.

     He had been identified with the State Militia before the outbreak of the Spanish American war, and at the time of the war helped raise the Fifth Regiment of Missouri Volunteers, afterwards being elected one of its majors.

     He is a member of the State Dental Association, and is also president of the local Odontographic Association, a local organization.  He is besides an associate member of the Association of Military Surgeons, and was connected with the experiments the United States Government made in 1896 and the following years with the Krag-Jorgensen and the Mauser service rifles.

     Mr. Stark married Miss Alice Vincil, daughter of the Rev. John D. Vincil, of St. Louis, in 1886, and has one child, a boy, John Vincil Stark.
