Biography of John D. MacPherson


MacPherson, John D., M. D., Newstead, p. o. Akron, was born in Ontario, Canada, August 11, 1858, and is a son of James and Jane (Fraser) MacPherson. Dr. MacPherson received his education at Rockland Academy and at Georgetown Academy, Canada. In 1880 he entered the medical department of Michigan University and was graduated in 1883. He then practiced for about one year in Jackson, Mich., after which, in 1884, he came to Akron and located permanently. During the years of his residence there he has built up an extensive practice, besides attaining an eminent standing in the ranks of the best physicians. Dr. MacPherson is a member of the Erie County Medical Society, also the Gross Medical Society. He has taken an active interest in politics, but professional duties have prevented him from becoming an office holder in the party, although he has served as member of the School Board and has been offered the honor of being president of the village. In 1886 Dr. MacPherson married Mina R., daughter of George M. Van Clief of Akron, and they have two children, Marjcrie B. and James Kelsa.
