An agreeable manner and attractive personality as well as marked professional skill and deep interest in his
profession renders Dr. Faust S. De Long a popular and successful physician of Utica, where he has practiced
continuously since 1901. He was born in Richfield Springs, New York, September 18, 1877, and is a son of D. H.
and Mary J. (Black) De Long, both of whom were representatives of old New York families. The father devoted his
attention to farming and Dr. De Long was reared amid the scenes and environment of agricultural life. He pursued
his education in the public schools, in the Richfield Springs high school and the Richfield Academy, and then in
preparation for the practice of medicine entered the College of Physicians and Surgeons which is the medical department
of the Columbia University of New York city. He was graduated therefrom in 1901 with the degree of M. D., and later
obtained broad practical experience in his work in connection with Faxton Hospital. He has been continuously associated
with that institution and is on its surgical staff. His private practice has grown continuously and in substantial
manner and although one of the younger he is also one of the more successful physicians of the city, his standing
among his professional brethren being indicated by the fact that he has been honored with the presidency of the
Utica Medical Club, which position he is now filling. He also belongs to the Medical Library Association, the Oneida
County Medical Society and the New York State Medical Society. Professional interests and duties, however, are
not permitted to occupy his time and attention to the exclusion of all else, for he has important business connections,
being vice president and treasurer of the Utica Steam Engine & Boiler Works and a director and officer of the
universal Boiler Compound Company.
On the 2d of May, 1906, Dr. De Long was united in marriage to Miss Annetta P. Omens, a daughter of the late Joel
A. Omens, of whom mention is made elsewhere in this volume. The only child of Dr. and Mrs. De Long died in infancy.
The Doctor is a member of the Arcanum Club and of the Automobile Club, associations which indicate something of
the nature of his interests and recreation. His vacation periods are devoted to hunting and fishing and he is a
most congenial companion for a summer outing and at all times is popular with an extensive circle of friends. His
professional duties, however, are foremost in his life and are always performed with a sense of conscientious obligation.
