 History - 1913 Industrial Edition



The time was when the practice of medicine was for the young doctor a struggle for existence, so keen and the road he traveled was so rocky that many bright and capable young men who would have been a credit to that profession were deterred from entering it because they feared the unequal struggle. Those were primitive days of the profession, but in these days the young doctor, like the young man in every other walk of life, has come into his own.

Of the younger professional men in Atlantic, none are better known throughout this section than Dr. Max Emmert, son of the late Dr. J. M. Emmert and successor to the practice of his father, who died in 1909, after over thirty years of practice in this section.

Dr. Emmert was born and raised in this city. He attended the local high school and Corning academy, from the latter of which he was graduated in 1901. He then entered the University of Iowa and was graduated therefrom with an A. B. degree in 1905. He attended the medical department of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, and was graduated with a degree of M. D.

Dr. Max Emmert


Dr. Emmert is prominent in his profession, locally and in the state. He is a member of the board of directors of the Atlantic hospital, a member of the local Commercial Club, Sigma Nu College fraternity and of the Nu Sigma Nu medical fraternity. Dr. Emmert is also a member of the Masonic order, belonging to the local chapter A. F. & A. M., and to the local camp of the M. W. A. He is secretary of the Cass County Medical Association, belonging as well to the Missouri Valley and State Medical Associations, and is a frequent contributor to the medical journals.

As a physician and surgeon, Dr. Emmert has Forged to the front is [sic in] his native city, giving the lie to the oft repeated statement that "a prophet is never without honor save in his own country." By nature and training he is equipped splendidly for his professino and he is taking rank with the brightest and best in his chosen field of labor.
