Bio: Conroy, Frank (1907)
Dr. John Conroy has received news from Ravenswood, Ill., stating that his brother, Dr. Frank Conroy, was asphyxiated While attending a patient, and came near dying. A Ravenswood family was overcome by gas, which was entirely odorless, and Dr. Conroy and two other physicians were: hastily summoned. Dr. Conroy arrived first and not detecting the presence of gas, started the work of resuscitation, not knowing the cause of the victim's condition. While engaged in the work, he too was overcome. The other two physicians were overcome, but serious results were averted by the arrival of help from the neighbors--Neillsville Times (Jan. 31, 1907)
