Doctor Frank Conroy appointed to High Post
A letter received recently from an old-time resident of Neillsville, Dr. Frank Conroy, brings some interesting items to his many friends.
Dr. Conroy was appointed chief surgeon on Jan. 1, of this year on one of the fine liners running out of San Francisco. This valued appointment is a fitting reward for a long record of fine achievements as a practitioner and as scientific research expert. The older Neillsville residents will remember the numerous highly skilled operations that were performed here by Dr. Frank Conroy, ably assisted by his talented brother, the late Dr. John Conroy. The departure from Neillsville of these unusual brothers must always be considered an irreparable loss for this community - such types honor the towns they lived in.
Residents of their day no doubt remember the little Conroy child who was born in Neillsville, named after his father. This oldest son is now on the staff of the Emergency hospital in San Francisco, after five years in the County Hospital service, now in charge of all the emergency work, a brilliant career before him.
Dr. Conroy celebrated his 70th birthday on Feb. 24, on the high sea far down in the tropical latitudes off South America. To the numerous good wishes and congratulations of his Pacific Coast friends we add those of his many friends and admirers from Clark County.
