J. D. Cantwell, M. D. Biography
From "Vol. 2 History of Davenport and Scott County" by Harry E. Downer-S. J. Clarke Publishing Co. 1910 Chicago.
Surnames: Cantwell, Dalzell, Taylor.
Dr. J. D. Cantwell, deserving of mention with the able and representative members of the medical profession in Davenport, his native city, was born in April, 1877.
His father was Dr. A W. Cantwell, for many years a distinguished physician of Davenport, of whom extended mention is made elsewhere in this volume.
The mother was Mrs. Martha (Dalzell) Cantwell, and unto them were born two sons, the elder being James Y. Cantwell, who served in the Spanish-American war in the Fifty-second Iowa Infantry and was afterward transferred to the Fourth Division of the regular army. He was at length honorably discharged in Cuba on account of disability and is now a commercial traveler.
In the public schools of this city Dr. J. D. Cantwell pursued his preliminary education, which was later supplemented by study in the State University. He was graduated from the medical department with the class of 1901 and in April of the same year at once entered upon practice in Davenport, where he is making rapid progress toward the front rank of the profession. Conscientious in the performance of all his professional duties, careful in the diagnosis of his cases and with thorough understanding of anatomy and the component parts of the human body and the onslaughts made upon it by disease. He is a member of the County and Sate Medical Associations and the Iowa and Illinois District Medical Association. He is now treasurer of the United States pension board in this district.
It was in March, 1904, that Dr. Cantwell was united in marriage to Miss MARY EDNA TAYLOR, and unto them have been born two children, EDNA MARY and JOHN DALZELL.
Dr. Cantwell is prominent in Masonic circles, belonging to Trinity Lodge, No. 208, F. & A. M.; Davenport Chapter, No. 16, R. A. M.; St. Simon of Cyrene Commandery, No. 9, K. T., of which he is past eminent commander; Zarepath Consistory, No. 4, s. P. R. S.; and Kaaba Temple, A. A. O. N. M. S. He likewise belongs to Prosperity Lodge, No. 704, I. O. O. F. His record sets at naught the old adage that a prophet is never without honor save in his own country, for in the state where his entire life has been passed Dr. Cantwell has demonstrated his professional worth and it has gained for him recognition in a liberal practice.
