MAMIE A. COVENY, M.D.
Among those who are successfully engaged in the practice of medicine in Clinton, Iowa, is Dr. Mamie A. Coveny. She was born in Quebec, Canada, and is a daughter of John and Mary (Farley) Coveny, the former a native of Ireland, the latter of Canada. In 1870 the family removed to Maryville, Missouri, where the father died in 1879, but the mother is still living and now makes her home in Clinton, Iowa. They had six children, namely: J. T., a physician of Oskaloosa, Iowa; F. H., a druggist of Eldora; Mamie A., our subject; Agatha B., wife of J. H. Gebbeken, of Lawrence, Kansas ; Teresa, wife of A. W. Fox, of Burlington, Iowa; and J. H., a druggist of Colfax, this state.
Dr. Coveny received her literary education at St. Mary's Seminary in Maryville, Missouri, where she was graduated in 1886, and then entered the Iowa State University at Iowa City, and was graduated at that institution with the degree of M. D., in 1892. She has since taken a regular postgraduate course at the Polyclinic Medical College, of Chicago, Illinois. In June, 1892, she opened an office in Clinton and has since engaged in general practice at this place. Although she is engaged in general practice she gives special attention to the diseases of women and children, and is meeting with excellent success. She is an honored member of the Clinton County Medical Society, the Iowa State Medical Society, the American Medical Association and the Tri-State Medical Society, and the Social Society of Iowa Medical Women, and takes an active interest in the work of these various organizations, which are among the most prominent associations of the kind in the United States. She is a frequent contributor to medical journals, and is exceedingly well informed on all advancement made in the science of medicine and surgery.
