Dr. Irvin J. Pascoe is a well known and successful young medical practitioner of Harvey and has already won
an enviable reputation in professional circles of the county. His birth occurred in Wisconsin on the 27th of April,
1885, his parents being J. J. and Sarah E. (Trenery) Pascoe, likewise natives of that state. In 1886 they removed
to Monroe county, Iowa, and have there resided continuously since. They became the parents of nine children, six
of whom survive.
Irvin J. Pascoe, who was only about a year old when brought to this state, spent the period of his minority under
the parental roof. Having determined upon a professional career, he entered the Chicago College of Medicine and
Surgery and was graduated from that institution in May, 1910. He first located for practice at Whiteman, Monroe
county, but at the end of two years opened an office in Harvey, where he has remained continuously to the present
time. He now enjoys an extensive and gratifying practice which has steadily grown as he has demonstrated his skill
and ability in coping with the intricate problems which continually confront the physician in his efforts to restore
health and prolong life. Through his membership in the Iowa State Medical Society he keeps in close touch with
the progress of the profession.
In 1910 Dr. Pascoe was united in marriage to Miss Mildred Merrill, a native of Chicago, Illinois, and a daughter
of Sanford and Mary (Miller) Merrill, both of whom were born in Ohio. The father is now a resident of Chicago and
is superintendent of the Oak Park schools, but the mother has passed away. Their four children are all yet living.
To Dr. and Mrs. Pascoe have been born three children, namely: Gladys M., Merrill B. and Irvin Theodore.
Dr. Pascoe gives his political allegiance to the republican party and is fraternally identified with the Masons,
belonging to the blue lodge and chapter, while his wife is a member of the Eastern Star. He is likewise affiliated
with the Yeomen and the Red Men, and both he and his wife are devoted members of the Methodist Episcopal church.
They have won many friends throughout the community and are very popular in social circles.
