Passing of Pawnee City Physican Marks Near End of the Pineer Doctors of Section.

Dr. Allen B. Anderson,Sr. veteran Pawnee City medical practitioner, died at his home in Pawnee City on December 27, 1943. He was in his 93rd year and was born at Clayton, Ills., on March 25, 1851.

The doctor had been in failing health for several years, and for many months had been under the constant care of a nurse.

In the passing of Dr. Anderson we lose just about the last of the pioneer doctors of this section, and we also lose one of our very best citizens.

His practice extended well beyond the county confines, and his acquaintanceship was very wide. No one was held in higher repute.

The appended article relative to the subject appeared in the Chief on April 2, 1941, at which time the drawing accompanying this article, the handiwork of Miss Sylvia Hubka, appeared:

"Dr. Anderson graduated from the Louisville, Kentucky, medical college in 1876 and located for a short time at David City. He left David City for Pawnee City, riding horseback all the way. His first office was in the Woods House, the present Exchange Hotel, and his first patient was a man by the name of Tallman, who had a tooth pulled.

"By reason of his education and medical skill he was destined to become one of the leading physicans and surgeons in this part of the state and he visited practically every home in Pawnee county during the 38 years he was in practice.

"For years Dr. Anderson was Rock Island surgeon, was a member of the Nebraska State Medical association, was a charter member of the Pawnee City Round Table and an elder in the First United Presbyterian church for over 50 years. He retired in 1915, selling his practice to Dr. J.C. Waddell, now of Beatrice."

Funeral services were held this afternoon from the United Presbyterian church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. H.A. Thompson. Interment was in the Pawnee City cemetery.

The following tribute was read at the service by Rev. Thompson:

"His long life of devoted ministries to the people of this community to which practically all of his practice was extended, is deserving of a very eloquent tribute of gratitude. He was in all respects a nobleman. His honesty and integrity as a man, his skill as a physician and surgeon,and his self sacrificing interest in people and the community has given him a place of respect as enduring as granite. He was dominated by high ideals in his desire to seek the good of his community. His special field of interest was in the spere of good health, but it had its bearings in all other phases of public and private life. He was a liberal supporter of educational instutions which sought to promote right thinking and right living. And perhaps his supreme loyality was to the church and its interests. The value of such a life in a community is impossible to measure in commonplace terms."
