Biography of Dr. William T. Bolton of Batavia, NY

Very prominent among the physicians of Batavia, though young in the profession and practice, is Dr. William T. Bolton, who, by his indefatigable energy and devotion to the responsibilities assumed by him, has succeeded in establishing a business second to none in the community. Dr. Bolton is a native of Wallingford, New Haven County, Conn., and son of William and Harriet (Self) Bolton, residents of New England, but of English ancestry. He was born March 21, 1859.. Receiving the superior primary education afforded by the schools of his native town (so well known throughout New England), he prepared for Yale College at Hopkins's Grammar School, New Haven, and studied with Dr. Paul C. Skift of the same place. In 1877 he entered the medical department of Yale College, graduating therefrom and receiving his diploma in 1879. He commenced the practice of his profession in Braidwood, Ill., and in 1881 entered Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, from which institution he graduated in 1882. He was immediately appointed resident physician of Charity Hospital on Blackwell's Island pursuing the superior advantages which that position afforded him for nearly two years. In 1883 he moved to Batavia, depending only upon his own native energy to gain the esteem and confidence in a community so necessary to the building up of a successful practice. That he has succeeded goes without saying; for he ranks among the profession as a popular and successful practitioner; being studious in his nature he keeps well up with the advance of his profession. Dr. Bolton is a member of the Genesee County Medical Society, being elected such in 1884, and also as secretary of the society in 1866, and still holds that office. He was united in marriage, November 14, 1884, to Alice J. Brooks, of Watkins, Schuyler County, N. Y., and they have two children, Robert W. and Elsie B. The family are members of the Baptist Society in Batavia, and the Doctor is one of its board of trustees.
