ALFRED D. BOLTON, A. B., M. D. Among the well known physicians and surgeons of Cleveland is Dr. A. D. Bolton,
who has won success and prestige in his profession as one of its leaders in the Collinwood district of the city.
Doctor Bolton is a native of Canada, born in the City of Toronto on November 15, 1879, of Scotch-Presbyterian and
Pennsylvania-Quaker ancestry. His paternal grandfather, a native of England, settled on land that has since become
a part of the City of Toronto, while his maternal grandfather, Alfred D. Davis, was a native of Pennsylvania, and
was a Quaker, he having gone to Toronto, Canada, in early days.
The parents of Doctor Bolton, Angus and Nancy A. (Davis) Bolton, were born in Toronto, the father in 1842, the
mother in 1843, and both are living. Angus Bolton was a farmer near Toronto for a number of years, and then moved
to near Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, in Western Canada, where he became the owner of 3,500 acres of wheat land, which
he operated with the assistance of his four sons and a son in law.
Doctor Bolton was graduated from the Toronto, Canada, High School and later entered McGill University, from which
he was graduated with the Bachelor of Arts degree. In 1901 he came to Cleveland, and for nine years was in the
employ of the city as engineer at the City Water Works. In 1910 he resigned his position with the city and entered
the medical department of Ohio State University, where he was graduated Doctor of Medicine with the class of 1913.
Leaving medical college, he served one year as interne in the Cleveland City Hospital, and then entered the general
practice of medicine and surgery, with offices at 15603 Waterloo Road, where he has since continued, now specializing
Doctor Bolton married Miss Edith J. McCardle, the daughter of Andrew McCardle, of Michigan, and they have a daughter
and two sons: Rhea, Kenneth and Edgar.
