JULIUS FREDERICK WINGENBACH. M. D.
Dr. Julius Frederick Wingenbach, well known as an able and successful physician and surgeon of Utica, has here practiced his profession for the past fifteen years. His birth occurred at Elberfeld, Germany, on the 27th of November, 1865, his parents being Julius and Elizabeth (Dietz) Wingenbach, the former a monument contractor of Elberfeld. In early manhood he crossed the Atlantic to the United States and after completing his academic education pursued a course in pharmacy, being granted a license in New York in 1888. In 1892 he entered the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania, from which institution he was graduated in 1896, winning the degree of M. D. Returning to Utica, he has since made this city the scene of his professional labors, enjoying a constantly growing and remunerative general practice. He makes a specialty of surgery and for ten years has been connected with the state armory at Utica as surgeon. For three years he served as pharmacist at the Utica State Hospital and for ten years has been on t.he staff of St. Elizabeth's Hospital. At the present time he acts as visiting physician and surgeon for Faxton Hospital. He is likewise an ex physician for the German Sick and Death Benefit Fund and is a prominent member of the New York State Medical Society, the Oneida County Medical Society and the Utica Medical Club. Through the interchange of experience and ideas among the members of these organizations he keeps in touch with what the profession is accomplishing and enhances his own knowledge and efficiency.

Dr. Wingenbach has been married twice, his first anion being with Miss Christina Blust, of Holland Patent, New York, by whom he had four children, as follows: Julius Fred, a high school graduate, who is now employed as a mechanical draughtsman; Ruth Anna, a high school student; and Christine A. and John D., who are likewise attending school. The wife and mother was called to her final rest in 1903, her remains being interred in the Forest Hill cemetery. In 1905 Dr. Wingenbach wedded Miss Maude A. Haynes, of Albany, New York.

In politics Dr. Wingenbach is independent, supporting men and measures rather than party. For several years after establishing himself in practice at Utica he held the office of assistant city physician. Fraternally he is identified with the Masons, belonging to Faxton Lodge, No. 697, Oneida Chapter, R. A. M., and Utica Commandery No. 3, K. T., also Ziyara Temple of the Mystic Shrine. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Lutheran church, to which his wife and children also belong. His vacations are devoted to hunting and fishing, which sports afford him both pleasure and recreation. He maintains the strictest conformity to the highest professional ethics and enjoys in full measure the confidence and respect of his professional brethren as well as of the general public.
