He was born in Quincy, February 9, 1860, and is the son of Elijah and Elizabeth Johnson Purdy. Dr. Purdy was graduated in 1882 from what was then known as the Medical College of Bellevue Hospital, New York, and after graduation served one year as interne in that famous hospital and the experiences of that year have been of great value in his life work. He then came to Arizona as chief surgeon for the Silver King mine in Pinal County, and after about six months was persuaded to remove to Nogales as surgeon for the Santa Fe, now the S. P. of Sonora. This was in 1884. He is now consulting physician and surgeon for all railroads in Mexico south of Nogales.
