Dr. Clarence Eugene Kidder, a practicing physician and surgeon of Holstein, Nebraska, was born in Winnebago county, Illinois, October 3, 1881, his parents being B. F. and M. A. (Hewitt) Kidder. The father served for three years as a soldier in the Seventy fourth Illinois Infantry during the Civil war and after the close of hostilities settled in Winnebago county, Illinois, where he remained until 1885, when he removed with his family to eastern Colorado, there taking up his abode upon a farm. He afterward became a resident of Greeley and it was during the period of residence of the family in that place that Dr. Kidder attended the graded schools, the high school and the normal school. He determined upon the practice of medicine as a life work and in 1910 entered upon preparation for the profession at Cotner University in Lincoln, Nebraska, from which institution he was graduated in June, 1914. On the 15th of July of the same year he took up his abode at Holstein and in the intervening period, covering about two years, has built up a large, extensive and gratifying practice. During the period in which he was pursuing his studies in Lincoln he was for eighteen months associated with the city physician there and thus gained broad and valuable practical experience.
