Arizona Biographies





HIRAM W. FENNER, M. D., is a resident of Tucson, but widely known beyond the confines of his city and county. Dr. Fenner is the son of Hiram and Elizabeth Myers Fenner, both natives of Pennsylvania, who later lived in Bucyrus, Ohio. In the latter town Dr. Fenner was born in 1859. His ancestry on both sides is German, but his father's family were early settlers of Pennsylvania. Dr. Fenner was educated in the public schools of Bucyrus and was graduated from the high school in 1876. The same year he began the study of medicine in Terra Haute, and subsequently entered the Medical College of Ohio, now the University of Cincinnati, from which he was graduated in 1881. He then came to Arizona and was appointed physician for the Copper Queen Mining Company at Bisbee, where he remained until 1883. In the latter year he located in Tucson, engaged in private practice, and during the years that have intervened, his skill, his strict adherence to professional ethics, and his genial, tactful manner have won for him a warm place in the hearts of the many who are known as his friends and patrons. Besides attending to his general practice Dr. Fenner has for many years been division surgeon for the Southern Pacific Railroad Company. He has also been regent of the University of Arizona and member of the Board of Library Commissioners which superintended the erection of the Carnegie Library. In politics he is a Republican. He has been associated for years with the Arizona Medical Society. Dr. Fenner was married near San Francisco to Miss Ida Hemme, a native of California.
