Marion County, IA Biographies





C. N. BOS, M. D.
For the past nine years Dr. C. N. Bos has been engaged in the general practice of medicine and surgery in Pella and in that time has become recognized as one of the leaders in his profession in the city. He was born in Chicago in 1876, a son of N. K. and Jennie (Klooster) Bos, natives of The Netherlands. In 1872 they crossed the Atlantic and upon landing in this country made their way direct to Chicago, where they located. The father had been a gardener and dairyman in his native land and in 1887 he removed to Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he continued to engage in those occupations and where he and his wife still live.

Dr. Bos was given excellent educational advantages. As a boy and youth he attended the public schools of Chicago and later took a course in the Athenaeum Business College of that city. Upon deciding to make the practice of medicine his life work he entered the Medical College of the Northwestern University, which is also located in Chicago, and received his professional degree from that institution in 1904. He desired to make thorough preparation before entering upon independent practice and so served for nineteen months as interne at the Iowa State Hospital, located at Independence. In 19o5 he came to Pella and has since been engaged in active practice here. He is an able and conscientious physician and has won the confidence of both the general public and his colleagues. He takes a personal interest in his patients' recovery and has been very successful in his treatment of various diseases, relieving where it has been impossible to effect a permanent cure. He is a member of the state and county medical societies and of the American Medical Association and thus keeps informed as to what other members of the profession are doing. In 1913 he took a course at the Illinois Post Graduate Medical College, in Chicago, and he is constantly striving to learn more of the science and practice of medicine and to give his patients the benefit of the latest discoveries and most improved methods of treatment.

On the 15th of June, 19o5, Dr. Bos was married to Miss Emma Grace Chase, of Anna, Illinois, a daughter of Charles Chase, and to this union have been born two sons, Myron and Howard. The Doctor and his wife are members of the Second Reformed church. He is a progressive in politics, as he believes that that party has the most comprehensive and wisest plan for securing that social justice and permanent prosperity which is the desire of all right thinking men. He is always willing to assist in any way within his power in movements that seek the welfare of Pella and has thoroughly identified himself with the interests of the city.
