CHARLES WESLEY CARR, M. D., was a very able doctor during the active years
of his practice, and his qualifications as a professional man are
though he has made every effort to give up the routine work of his
profession. That has been rather difficult, since many residents of his
home City of
Denison learned to rely upon his skill years ago and profess an
to run the risk and inconvenience of seeking the services of an untried
Whether as a professional man or citizen Doctor Carr has earned and enjoyed
a high degree of popularity. He was born in Macon County, Illinois,
September 5, 1865. His father, Robert F. Carr, was also a medical man.
He was born
in Orange County, New York, graduated from the Albany Medical College, and
while in college his instructor in anatomy was Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes,

in later generations as a philosopher and poet. Doctor Carr came west to
practice his profession and was engaged in his labors in Macon County,
until his death. He married Emnily Snick, a native of Kentucky. She
resides at Oak Park, Illinois, and celebrated her ninety-first birthday
Charles Wesley Carr grew up in Macon County, Illinois, was educated in
public schools and the University of Illinois and in 1890 received his M. D.
degree from Rush Medical College of Chicago. In the same year he came to
County, Iowa, first practicing in Dow City, and in 1903 moved to Denison,
the county seat. Doctor Carr kept up his active practice until a few years
ago, and since then has given up his office and so far as possible devotes
time to his private affairs. For a number of years he has owned lands in
Western Canada, including a large tract in Saskatchewan, which has been
colonized. He was reared a Democrat, but has exercised an independent
candidate. He is a Royal Arch Mason, and in his career has developed a
of life that is distinctly cheerful and optimistic.
Doctor Carr married, in 1893, Olivette Dorsey, a native of Dorsey, Illinois
He has one son, Vernon W., who married Cora Randolph. Doctor Carr's two
grandchildren are Marie E. and Dorothy R. Vernon Carr is connected with
Crawford County Trust & Savings Bank of Denison. This bank was organized in
March, 1927. Doctor Carr took an active part in the organization sand for
past three years has been president of the bank.
