Biography of Dr. Albert E. Stafford
Oneida County, NY Biographies





Dr. Albert Edson Stafford, enjoying a large and lucrative practice as a member of the medical profession in Whitesboro, has been a resident of that village since August, 1902. He was born in Plattsburg, Clinton county, New York, April 30, 1877, and is a son of Rufus Eugene and Ella M. (Fordham) Stafford, both of whom were natives of Clinton County, New York. The father was a farmer by occupation and under the parental roof Albert E. Stafford spent his youthful days, acquiring his early education in the district schools. He prepared for college in the Plattsburg Normal and in preparation for the practice of medicine in 1897 entered the medical college at Syracuse, New York, being graduated therefrom with the M. D. degree in 1901. He afterward spent a year as interne in the Hospital of the Good Shepard at Syracuse and the broadening experiences there proved very valuable as a preparation for the duties which have since devolved upon him in the growing practice that has been accorded him since he came to Whitesboro in August, 1902. His success has steadily grown, his practice increasing in volume and importance as the years have gone by. He is faithful and conscientious in the performance of all his professional duties and has the confidence not only of the general public but also of his professional brethren as well. He isresident physician of the Whitesboro Sanitarium and keeps in touch with the progress of the profession through his membership in the American Medical Association, New York State Medical Society and Oneida County and Utica Medical Library Societies. He has been health officer for Yorkville, Whitesboro and the township of Whitestovra for the past eight years.

On the 15th of September, 1903, Dr. Stafford was married to Miss Lillian Cooke, a daughter of John and Mary Cooke. In addition to his home in Whitesboro Dr. Stafford has a lodge on Lake Champlain where he spends his vacations with a motor boat on the lake and in fishing. He is a typical man of the present day, eagerly alive to all the interests and issues of the times, and keeps well informed on the political questions of the moment, giving his allegiance to the republican party. He served for two terms as a trustee of Whitesboro but is not a politician in the sense of office-seeking. He belongs to the Whitesboro Sportsmen Association and is prominent in Masonic circles, holding membership in Oriskany Lodge, A. F. & A. M.; Syracuse Consistory, A. & A. S. R.; and Utica Temple of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. He is reported as one of the leading citizens of the community whose interests are of a varied kind and whose cooperation may always be counted upon as a helpful element in public progress.
