Erie County, NY Biographies


Bagley, Thomas, M. D., Buffalo, was born in Staffordshire, England, in 1853, a son of Thomas Bagley (who was an iron worker), and Hannah (Unwin) Bagley. When a lad Thomas B. learned the iron worker's trade and in 1873 came to America a poor boy, his parents having died in the mean time. He came direct to Buffalo, and engaged at his trade with P. P. Pratt, later with Pratt & Letchworth, as a skilled workman. He was soon made foreman of his department, and there remained a number of years. Being a student with the ambition to acquire a higher intellectual and social position, the profession of medicine was his choice, and with this purpose in view, he called on old Doctor Rochester, the father of medicine in Buffalo, a lover of the student and beloved by all students, and from him he received encouragement. For some time after he worked at his bench with his medical book before him, and in 1886 entered the University of Buffalo, from which he was graduated with the class of 1889. He immediately began the practice of his profession, meeting with success that a man of Dr. Bagley' s perseverance is truly worthy of. He is a member of the Roswell Park Medical Club, and has been appointed to deliver a course of lectures at the Riverside Hospital. He is physician for the order of Red Men, and is also a member of the Foresters of America. In 1891 he was married to Sarah A. Fee, of Buffalo, and they have three Sons.
