Charles L Amick, B S, Ph G, M D He whose name initiates this paragraph is with all consistency to be designated as one of the representative physicians and surgeons of the younger generation in Elkhart County, with admirable technical equipment and with a buoyant and sincere personality that gains him staunch friends among all classes. He is engaged in the successful practice of his profession in the Village of Wakarusa, and the scope and importance of his professional business attest alike to his ability and personal popularity.

Doctor Amick was born at Scottsburg, the judicial center of Scott County, Indiana, on the 23d of May, 1885, and is a son of William H and Alice Ellen (Cranford) Amick, both likewise natives of Scott County, where the former still maintains his home at Scottsburg, the devoted wife and mother having been summoned to the life eternal in 1892 and being survived by seven children, - Georgia, Mabel, Dr Charles L, Harry C, Grace, Wilbur and Roy.

William H Amick's paternal grandfather was a native of Germany and upon coming to America numbered himself among the pioneers of Scott County, Indiana, where he died when comparatively a young man. William H Amick was an infant at the time of his father's death, was reared and educated in Scott County, and for many years he gave effective service as a commercial traveler, in which field of enterprise he made a high reputation. He is now living virtually retired at Scottsburg. His wife was a daughter of Edward and Ellen (St Clair) Cranford. and the former's father, Charles Cranford, was born in England, as a member of the patrician and distinguished family of which the Earl of Cranford is the head, the founders of the American branch of the family having settled in Virginia. In the history of Scott County written by the late Hon William H English, of Indianapolis, that distinguished Indianian spoke of Charles Cranford as having been one of the honored and influential pioneers of this county. Edward Cranford was one of the substantial agriculturists and representative citizens of Scott County at the time of his death.

Doctor Amick acquired his early education in the public schools of Scottsburg and thereafter pursued a higher course of academic study in Moore's Hill College, which institution he attended for one year. He then entered Valparaiso University, in the scientific and pharmacy departments of which he was graduated as a member of the class of 1906, receiving the degrees of B S and Ph G. After his graduation he taught school for one term and then followed the course of his ambition by entering the medical department of the University of Louisville, in the metropolis of Kentucky, in which institution he was graduated in 1911 and from which he received his well earned degree of Doctor of Medicine. He initiated the practice of his profession at Fillmore, Putnam County, Indiana, where he remained until the fall of 1914, when he came to Elkhart County and established his residence at Wakarusa, where he has built up a substantial and representative general practice and become one of the popular and progressive citizens of this thriving village He is a close and appreciative student of the best standard and periodical literature of his profession, with the advances of which he further keeps in touch by means of his active affihation with the Indiana State Medical Society and the Elkhart County Medical Society. His political allegiance is given to the independent party but his devotion to his profession is such that he subordinates all else to its demands and has had no inclination to enter the arena of practical politics.

In the year 1911 was solemnized the marriage of Doctor Amick to Miss Aloah Eby, who was born and reared in St Joseph County, this state, where her parents, Cyrus and Anna (Wenger) Eby, still maintain their home. Doctor and Mrs Amick have no children.
