FRANCIS H. REDEWILL, Physician and Surgeon, is an excellent example of the advantages gained by thorough preparation in one's profession or life work. He was born in Virginia City, Nevada, in 1879, but as the family removed to California a few years later, it was in that State he received his fundamental education. He attended the common schools and was graduated from the Vallejo High school in the class of 1898; four years later, having completed the course in the College of Chemistry, he received a B. S. degree from the University of California. He matriculated at Johns Hopkins Medical College in the fall of 1902, and in 1906 received his diploma there, standing third in a class of more than one hundred. As a further preparation for his work he then acted as interne in the Roosevelt and Methodist Hospitals, New York, after which he took a special course of study in Europe. Returning to America, he went to Fort Bayard, New Mexico, where he did research work in tuberculosis at the Government Hospital and later took a special summer course at the Manhattan Hospital, New York. In all of his work he has made a particular study of diseases of the nose, throat and lungs. After a year's work in the office of Dr. Wylie, of Phoenix, he opened his own office at No. 118 North First Avenue, that city, where he has since practiced. In April, 1911, Dr. Redewill married Miss Helen Beatrice Munn in Paris. The Redewill family have taken a prominent part in the social, civic and professional life of Phoenix, all being well known musicians and members of the Redewill Music Company. Dr. Redewili during one summer vacation while a medical student played a clarionet in the Marine Band of Washington, doing solo work. One brother is a violinist of note and composer, and his sister is taking an advanced course in music abroad. Of the remaining two brothers, one is a graduate of the University of California in Electrical Engineering, a cornet soloist, and President of Redewill Music Company, while the youngest is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, Boston, and expert tuner of pianos and pipe organs. His parents are also well known in musical circles. His maternal grandfather, Anson Clark, was a California "Forty niner." His paternal grandmother was one of the pioneer educators of Boston. His grandfather, a marine merchant, having lost his life on one of his own ships sailing between South America and France, his grandmother brought their son, Augustus Redewill, to America, where he was given an excellent education. He became one of the pioneer business men of Phoenix, having founded the Redewill Music Company more than thirty years ago. The paternal grandfather of Augustus Redewill knew Napoleon intimately and was a captain in his army. During his school and college career Dr. Redewill held several track records and was with the U. of C. team that in 1902 won in the North and East from Princeton and Yale. He is a member of the National Medical Association, National Society for the Prevention of Tuberculosis, Natioral Geographic Society, National Municipal League, Young Men's Phoenix Club, and Elks: alumnus of Johns Hopkins and U. of C. His preparation for his work has been most thorough. His office, one of the most finely equipped in the Southwest, is especially fitted for the treatment of the ear, nose and throat, as well as for general medical and surgical work.
