Biography of Dr. Sophus N. Jorgenson
Humboldt County, CA Biographies





SOPHUS NICOLAI JORGENSEN, M. D. - The man who pursues a purpose with resolute energy usually becomes an important factor in the professional or business circles of his community. In this respect Dr. Jorgensen has not proved an exception to the general rule, for through skill in the practice of medicine and devotion to the demands of the profession he has risen to a position of influence at Fortuna, his headquarters for more than a decade of continued activity and usefulness. It has been his practice to study every modern development in therapeutics. With this end in view he has read current medical literature with interest and concentration of thought and has maintained an active membership in the Humboldt County, California, and American Medical Associations, besides being personally and intimately identified with the American Institute of Homeopathy.

Salt Lake City, Utah, is the native home of the Doctor, and January 4, 1868, the date of his birth, but he has few childhood memories, except such as are associated with San Francisco, the family having established a home there in 1870. Always eager to learn, he proved a diligent and intelligent pupil in the San Francisco schools and when he had completed the studies of the common branches he turned his attention to medicine with a view to entering upon the duties of that profession. Following an unusually creditable record as a medical student he was graduated from the Hahnemann Hospital College of Medicine in 1897, with the degree of M. D., and has since followed the practice of medicine and surgery, for one year in Nevada City, Cal., and since 1898 in Humboldt county, the first five years in Hydesville, and since 1903 in Fortuna. Aside from being identified with associations of a professional order he has some social and fraternal associations, notably with the Knights of Pythias and the Eureka Aeries of Eagles.
