Biography of Dr. Winfield B. Capron
Oneida County, NY Biographies





Among the younger representatives of professional life in Utica is numbered Dr. Winfield B. Capron, whose age has seemed no bar to the attainment of recognition in dental circles here. He is one of Oneida county's native sons, being born in the town of Lee, on the 20th of January, 1881. His parents, Jay and Cornelia A. (Spencer) Capron, were also born in the town of Lee, this county. He acquired his preliminary education in the public schools of Rome and graduated from the Rome Free Academy in 1900. His professional training was received in the University of Buffalo Dental School. He was graduated therefrom in 1903, with the D. D. S. degree, receiving honors, and in the same year opened an office for practice in Utica, this city since remaining the scene of his activity. From the first he has been successful in his chosen life work and is now accorded a large patronage which is constantly increasing in volume and importance as his efficiency has bacame known. His offices, located in rooms 4 and 5, Clarendon Building, are well appointed in every respect and are thoroughly equipped with all of the modern appliances known to the art of dentistry.

Dr. Capron was married, April 25, 1911, to Miss Martha Maholm Reed, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Gaizdner Reed, of Des Moines, Iowa. With his wife he attends the Grace Episcopal church, of which the latter is a member, and he belongs to t.he Arcanum Club of Utica. He is an alumnus of the Xi Psi Phi, a Greek letter fraternity which he joined during his college days, when he took an active part in its affairs. In politics he is a republican where national questions are at issue, but in local matters supports that independent movement which does not recognize machine rule or party dictation, but stands for the best men and most desirable measures. He is deeply interested in the various phases of community life and in citizenship is active, progressive and public spirited. He has never sought nor desired office for himself, however, for, being greatly devoted to his profession, he has preferred to concentrate his energies upon his practice, and his close application thereto is one of the secrets of his present success. He has just reached the thirtieth milestone on life's journey, and the important character which his practice has already assumed augurs well for a bright future.
