Arizona Biographies





ALFRED G. KINGSLEY, M. D., superintendent of the Insane Asylum, was born at Ripley, N. Y., September 16, 1876, and is the son of Emmett F. and Harriett Cosgrove Kingsley. Dr. Kingsley spent his early life in New York State, where he was educated in the public schools, and Westfield Academy, later attending the University of Michigan. He took up the study of medicine in the University of Buffalo, from which he graduated in 1901, and at once began the practice of his profession in his native town, remaining there until 1905. In the latter year he removed to Arizona, located in Nogales, where he again took up the practice of medicine and remained until appointed to his present position. During that time he built up an excellent practice and became one of the most eminent and popular physicians of the county. He also served as City Health Officer of Nogales, and Superintendent of Public Health for Santa Cruz County. In April, 1912, Dr. Kingsley assumed the position of superintendent of the insane asylum, and during his first year in this position, demonstrated his fitness for the same and the wisdom of the choice in making him superintendent, his ability and thoroughness in the management of the institution having been quite notable. An active member of the Masons and Odd Fellows, he is well known fraternally. On December 19, 1901, Dr. Kingsley was married in New York to Miss Martha Hitchcock, a cultivated and charming woman. They have one daughter, Marjorie.
