Biography of Dr. H. Frank Preston
Oneida County, NY Biographies





In addition to the large practice he enjoys in Utica, Dr. H. Frank Preston owns and conducts a sanitarium and winter resort in Cuba, where he has a very attractive estate. A native of Chenango county, New York, his natal day was the 7th of November, 1863; his parents were William and Electra (Burdick) Preston, the father a successful building contractor.

His preliminary education Dr. Preston acquired in the public schools of his native eounty, after which he attended the Homer, Burlington and Hanover, Vermont Academies. He then matriculated at the medical department of Dartmouth College, from which institution he was graduated with the degree of M. D. in 1888. Returning to Burlington, Vermont, he entered a hospital there where he remained as interne for a year. At the expiration of that time he went to Lewis county, New York, locating in Turin, where he successfully engaged in general practice for six years. From there he came to Utica, where he has ever since maintained an office.

Dr. Preston married Miss Anna C. McFarland, and to them were born three sons, two of whom are living; Kenneth, who was born in 1904; and Keith Burdick, whose birth occurred in 1907, while Frank, Jr., died in Cuba in February, 1911.

Dr. Preston affiliates with the Baptist and Mrs. Preston with the Presbyterian church. Fraternally he is identified with the Royal Arcanum, Maccabees and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, being the ranking member of the latter organization in Oneida county. His political support he gives to the candidates of the republican party, but does not actively participate in municipal affairs, his sanitarium and general practice absorbing the greater part of his time and attention. While a resident of Lewis county, however, he always prominently participated in all political affairs, being the successful candidate on the republican ticket in 1894 for the office of coroner. Dr. Preston keeps in touch with the members of his profession through the medium of his connection with the American Medical Association, New York State Medical Association and the Oneida and Lewis County Medical Societies. During the period of his residence in this city Dr. Preston has met with a very gratifying degree of success and is highly regarded both socially and professionally.
