After making remarkably thorough preparation for his life work Dr. Frank Perrin Bayliss settled in practice
at Utica three years ago and the success that has attended his efforts indicates that the time and labor spent

2, 1876, a son of Alfred and Mary (Skiff) Bayliss. The father was of English parentage and engaged in the manufacture
of caps. The mother was a daughter of Dr. Perrin A. Skiff, for thirty years a well known practitioner of Frankfort.
At the age of five years Frank P. Bayliss removed with his parents to Utica and was reared in this city. He received
his preliminary education in the public schools and the Utica Free Academy. After leaving the academy he entered
the Fairfield (New York) Military Academy of which he was a student from 1897 to 1898. Having made proper preparation
he matriculated at Syracuse University Medical College in 1901 and was graduated in medicine and surgery at that
institution in 1905 with the degree of M. D. From October, 1905, to October, 1906, he served as interne at the
State Hospital and Penal Institution of Providence, Rhode Island, and after leaving the hospital spent a year in
study at the New York Post Graduate College. He was also so fortunate as to secure the position of clinical assistant
on the eye at Bellevue Hospital and the New York Eye and. Ear Hospital and for six months was ambulance surgeon
at St. Gregory's Hospital of New York city. On the 1st of May, 1908, he began general practice in Utica, specializing
on the eye. Since 1898 he has been proprietor of the Whitesboro Sanitarium at Whitesboro for the treatment of narcotism
and alcoholism. This sanitarium was established in 1893. Almost immediately upon beginning practice at Utica Dr.
Bayliss gained recognition as one of the competent representatives of the medical fraternity in the city. His success
has from the start been assured. He is a man of rare attainments for one of his age and his skill as a physician
and surgeon has gained for him a lucrative patronage. He is an active worker in medical organizations and holds
membership in the Oneida County Medical Society, the New York State Medical Society and the American Medical Association.

second degree in that order. He possesses the qualities that contribute not only to professional and business success
but to good citizenship, and is regarded by all who know him as a young man of great promise and one who will attain
an eminent standing in his profession.
