Dr Albert B Deering is one of the successful physicians of Boone, interested in all that pertains to his profession and which renders his service of greater usefulness and value to his fellowmen. His reading has been wide and his broad study has enabled him to cope with many of the intricate and complex problems that continually confront the physician. He was born in Moingona, Boone county, July 27, 1874, a son of Alpheus A and Martha (Clift) Deering, natives of Maine and of Vermont respectivly. The fomer died December 3, 1910 but the mother survives and now makes her home in San Diego, California. On leaving New England, they became residents of the middle west, settling in Boone county in 1868. The father engaged in the practice of medicine at Moingona for several years and then came to Boone, where he follows his profession until his demise. He ranked high as a physician and surgeon and something of his standing among his professional brethren is indicated in the fact that he was made secretary of the State Medical Society. He is also district surgeon for the Chicago & Norhtwestern Railroad. Interested in affairs pertaining to public progress, he did everying in his power to promote advancement along material, intellectual, social and moral lines. He served as a member of the shcool board and at one time was also postmaster of Boone. To him and his wife were born four children: Charles C who is now living in Des Moines, Iowa, Albert B, Judson W who is a civil engineer, residing at San Diego, California, and Elsie the wife of Percy McDowell of Palo Alto, California.
Liberal educational opportuntities were accorded Dr Albert B Deering, who was a student in the Iowa State College at Ames and afterward attended the Iowa State University at Iowa City, spending one year as a student in this medical school. He then entered the medical departmant of the Northwesten Unviersity at Chicogo and was graduated therefrom with the class of 1898. He almost immediately afterward volunteered for service in the medical department of the Forty-ninth Iowa Infantry, with which he was connected for a year and then returned to Boone, where he has since practiced. He is district surgeon for the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad and local surgeon for the Iowa Railway Light Company.
On December 18, 1901, Dr Deering was united in marriage to Miss Jean Miller, a native of Wyoming, and their children were three in number: Albert B who is born April 7, 1905, David Miller born January 29, 1907, and Jean, who was born October 18, 1909, and passed away July 29, 1911. Dr Deering is independent in politics. Fraternally he is an Elk and in religious faith a Presbyterain. He possesses a broad humanitarian spirit, and the calls of his fellowmen make strong demand upon his sympathy. He is interested in everyting that tends to a broader and more accurate knowledge of the laws concerning the preservation and restoration of health, and by broad reading he is constantly adding to the information which he has already acquired and which enables him to successfully cope with many professional problems.
