Biography of Lewis George Smith


Smith, Lewis George, M. D., Buffalo, is a son of Gideon and Helen (Milroy) Smith, and was born at Glanford, Ontario, Canada, in 1856. He spent his boyhood on the farm and in brick-making. After attending the public schools of Ontario he entered, in 1879, the Brantford Collegiate Institute, where he took a special preparatory course with a view of studying medicine. In 1880 he passed most creditable examinations, and in 1882 he entered Victoria University at Coburg, from which he was graduated as M. D. and C. M. in 1885. He also took the fellowship degree from the Toronto School of Medicine, practiced his profession for one year with his brother, and in 1886 passed the examination and received his license degree from the College of Physicians of Ontario. Dr. Smith obtained his education by his own efforts, practicing the principle that money must be earned before it is expended. His career up to this time was one of untiring industry against limited means; beginning active practice in Canada he soon rose to prominence, and in 1888 sought a broader field in Buffalo, where his ability and personal qualifications have placed him among the leading physicians and surgeons of the city. Since coming here he has been in successful practice at 300 Elk street. He is a man of public spirit and enterprise, and a thorough student in all that pertains to the welfare of mankind. He is a member of the Erie County Medical Society, the Ontario College of Pharmacy, and the Odd Fellows.
