WILLIS W. VINSON, who operates a well equipped X-ray laboratory in the
Medical Arts building, Portland, has had extended experience in that line of
work and since establishing business here has gained a large clientele, and
won a well merited reputation for the painstaking and thorough character of
his work. Mr. Vinson was born in Butte, Montana, in 1883 and is a son of
Bruffet Thomas and Jerusha (Danner) Vinson, both of whom were natives of Ohio,
and both died in 1919.

Mr. Vinson received his early education in the public schools of Butte,
and later attended the University of California. He took up the study of X-ray
in the hospital of that institution, in which he continued for five years.
Later he came to Portland and in 1918 became associated with Dr. Ralph Walker,
with whom he remained until 1923. During this period he was assistant
professor of roentgenology in the University of Oregon Medical School. He went
to Medford, Oregon, where he remained until September, 1927, when he returned
to Portland and established an X-ray laboratory in the Medical Arts building,
where he is well equipped for any kind of work in his line, in which he has
shown superior ability.

In 1907, in Alameda, California, Mr. Vinson was united in marriage to
Miss Isabelle A. Meyer of that city, and they are the parents of two
daughters: Winifred I., aged twenty years, who was educated in the public
schools of Portland and is the wife of E. J. Vodjansky, who is an instructor
in swimming; and Vivien I., who attended the public schools of this city. Mrs.
Vinson's father, George Homer Meyer, was a well known writer of California,
having been connected with a number of the prominent newspapers of San
Francisco. Mr. Vinson is a member of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, the
Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and the Multnomah Athletic Club. Courteous
and obliging in manner and cordial and friendly in his social relations, he is
deservedly popular throughout the circle of his acquaintance, and because of
his professional attainments and his substantial qualities of character,
commands the uniform respect of his fellowmen.
