Walter Eugene Gregory, M. D., one of the managing physicians of the Jackson Sanatorium of Dansville, N. Y., was born in Reedsburg, Wis., on Sept. 18, 1857. Dr. Gregory's father, was a native of Ashtabula, Ohio, in which town Ezra Gregory, his grandfather, was also born. At the age of thirty-five Ezra moved to Wisconsin, where he lived until his death. He reared a family of seven children, two of whom followed the medical profession, and one was killed at Chalk Bluff, Mo., during the Rebellion.
Walter E. Gregory attended in his childhood the graded schools in Missouri, and on returning to Wisconsin, at the age of sixteen, continued his studies in the district school where he prepared for the high school course, which was completed in his twenty-first year. Failing in health in 1882 he came to The Jackson Sanatorium where twenty-five years before, his uncle, Levi Cottington, had been restored to health. Putting himself under the care of Dr. James H. Jackson, he faithfully followed the directions laid down for him, and in six months was able to engage in some light employment, from that time making himself useful wherever he was needed until after the fire of 1882, when he became superintendent in the business ofifice. In 1886 he entered the Medical Department of the University of Buffalo, graduating in 1889 on the honor roll.
In April, 1889, he married Miss Helen C. Davis, of St. Andrews, Quebec, Canada, and at once became a member of the staff of physicians at The Jackson Sanatorium. Dr. Gregory comes of a family of physicians, two of his father's brothers, and one of his mother's being well known physicians in the West. The same year Dr. and Mrs. Gregory became stockholders and directors in what was then known as Our Home Hygienic Institute, and they have since been active coadjutors of Dr. Jackson. Mrs. Gregory, as Miss Helen C. Davis, came to the Sanatorium in the autumn of '81, and in the spring of '82 became cashier, a position she held until appointed treasurer which office she now holds. Mrs. Gregory has for several years successfully conducted classes in the Delsarte system of physical culture. Cherry Knoll situated a little to the south and east of the Sanatorium is the home of Dr. Gregory.
Beatrice H. Gregory is the other member of the family, the little girl making her own history in study in the High school in music, work and play.
