Biography of George J. Frey, D.D.S.


Frey, George J., D. D. S., Buffalo, is the eldest son of Andrew and Katherine (Smithlin) Frey, natives of Baden-Baden, Germany, and was born in Gardenville, Erie county, May 22, 1869. Andrew Frey, son of Andrew, came with his parents to America in 1857, when he was sixteen years old, and settled in Buffalo, where he followed his trade as cabinetmaker. About 1865 he moved to a farm at Gardenville, in the town of West Seneca, where he and his wife, a native of Baden, still reside. Dr. Frey was educated in the district schools and at the Northwestern College at Naperville, Ill., and in 1891 was graduated with the degree of D. D. S. from the dental department of the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. While there he became a charter member and the first treasurer of Epsilon Chapter, Delta Sigma Delta, the only Greek letter fraternity for dental students in existence and the third chapter of the kind organized in the United States. On leaving college in 1891 Dr. Frey went to Lyons, France, where he was associated in practice for fifteen months with Dr. M. J. Quintero, one of the leading American dentists in Europe. In the fall of 1892 he returned to this country and settled in Buffalo, where he has since been engaged in the general practice of his profession. Dr. Frey was demonstrator of operative dentistry at the dental department of the University of Buffalo for two years (1892-94), and is a member of the Eighth District Dental Society and of Ancient Landmarks Lodge No. 441, F. & A. M. He was married November 27, 1895, to Miss Helen Valleau Lacy, daughter of John Thompson Lacy and Catherine McCabe, his wife, of Buffalo.
