FRANCIS JOSEPH FRIEDRICH, D. M. D.
For over eighteen years Dr. Francis Joseph Friedrich has been prominent in the dental circles of Astoria, where he has built up a large and lucrative practice. He is a native son of Oregon, his birth having occurred in Oregon City, April 14, 1881, a son of Gustave and Marie (Busch) Friedrich. Gustave Friedrich was for many years engaged in the manufacture of furniture in this state, first at Milwaukie and later at Oregon City in connection with Frank Busch.

Dr. Francis J. Friedrich is indebted to the schools of Oregon City for his education and after graduation from the McLaughlin Institute he entered the North Pacific Dental College at Portland, from which latter institution he was graduated in 1902, with the degree of D. M. D. He entered upon the practice of his profession in Dallas, Oregon, remaining there for fifteen months but in 1903 he came to Astoria, where he has since practiced. In the eighteen years of his practice in Astoria Dr. Friedrich has built up a large patronage and he is recognized as a most careful practitioner.

In 1907 Dr. Friedrich was united in marriage to Miss Henrietta Germann, a native of Illinois, and to their union four children have been born: Francis J., Jr.; Anna Marie; Henrietta and Robert Vincent.

Fraternally Dr. Friedrich is affiliated with the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, the Modern Woodmen and the Knights of Columbus and in the latter organization he has served as financial secretary. His religious faith is that of the Roman Catholic church and in line with his professional interests he is a member of the Oregon State and the American Dental Associations. In matters of civic interest he takes a prominent part and is readily conceded to be a leader in dental circles and a representative citizen.
