For twenty five years Dr. Sands Carr Maxson has been engaged in the practice of medicine in Utica, devoting
his entire attention to the treatment of the eye and ear as a specialist. He was born in Preston, Chenaugo county,
New York, on the 6th of August, 1848, and is a son of John C. and Harriet (Rogers) Maxson.
The preliminary education of Dr. Masson was acquired in Oxford, Chenango county, and after its completion he matriculated
in the medical department of the University of New York, from which institution he was awarded the degree of doctor
of medicine with the class of 1871. He subsequently opened an office in Leonardsville, Madison county, this state,
where he successfully engaged in general practice for fourteen years. At the expiration of that period he pursued
a post-graduate course for the special purpose of studying the diseases and ailments of the eye and ear. While
fitting himself for an aurist and oculist, he served one year as an instructor in the school where he was studying.
In 1886, Dr. Maxson came to Utica and established an office and has ever since been engaged in practice here. For
more than twenty years he has been oculist and aurist at St. Elizabeth's and the General Hospital, and he is also
dean of the nurses training-school for St. Elizabeth's, which was organized five years ago. Dr. Maxson has met
with success in his profession, for which he is admirably adapted, and has given most efficient service.
In Oxford, New York, Dr. Maxson was married on the 2d of January, 1872, to Miss Fannie Estella Munger. Three children
were born of this union, of whom a daughter, Ethel Eola, is living.
Dr. Maxson is a member of the Masonic fraternity, the American Geographic Society of Washington, D. C., and Oneida
Historical Society, while he maintains relations with the members of his profession through the American Ophthalmological
Society, Oneida County Medical Society, New York State Medical Association and the American Medical Association.
During the long period of his residence in Utica Dr. Masson has built up a very gratifying practice, having become
recognized as one of the foremost representatives of his branch of the medical profession.
