Biography of L. M. Downing
Washington County, IA Biographies





Dr. L. M. Downing, who for the past six years has been a successful medical practitioner of Wellman, was born in Daytonsville, Iowa, on the 21st of February, 1879, his parents being J. R. and Martha (Long) Downing. He continued to reside at home until he became enrolled as a student at the State University, from which institution he was graduated in 1903. Subsequently he located for practice in Wellman, where he has remained to the present time and that he has attained proficiency and skill is indicated by the large patronage which is accorded him and which has made him one of the representative members of the medical fraternity of his native county.

In 1904, Dr. Downing was united in marriage to Miss Harriet Stewart, whose birth occurred at Keota, Iowa, in 1879, her father being Archibald Stewart, who is mentioned on another page of this volume. Mrs. Downing, who is a high school graduate, has become the mother of one daughter, Helen, born October 15, 1906.

Dr. Downing exercises his right of franchise in support of the men and measures of the republican party, while fraternally he is connected with Daytonville Lodge, No. 49, A. F. & A. M., at Wellman. His wife is a devoted and faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
