Two Young Beecher Boys Become Full-fledged Doctors

Both Have Locations and Will Begin Practice at Once

Loyola School of Medicine 1911

Dr Hack & Dr. Wegert 1911Two of Beecher’s young men have become full-fledged doctors, having received their “sheep skins” from the Bennett Medical College at Chicago at their graduation on last Monday. Ed Hack, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hack, and Henry H. Wegert, brother of R.H. Wegert, our tonsorial artist, were the two who were honored. Both young men are well and favorably known, and their many friends will join us in wishing them success in their chosen professional vocation.

Those from Beecher who attended the graduation exercises were: Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hack and son, Arthur; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hack; Herman Hack and family; Mr. and Mrs. H.F. Thielman and children; Dr. and Mrs. D.D. Van Voorhis; Mrs. Henry Bielfeldt and son, Elmer; Mr. and Mrs. R.H. Wegert; Albert Hack and Miss Marie Deneke.

Dr. Wegert has accepted an interne at the West Side Emergency Hospital at Chicago, and Dr. Hack and his college friend Dr. Methrow, who also graduated, Monday, have accepted a like call at the Rockford Hospital.

All three young doctors are thrifty, ambitious and full of vim and no doubt will become popular and successful in their profession as physicians and surgeons.
