1905 History of Crawford County Kansas


Dr. George S. Moffatt, who has rapidly come into prominence in the dental profession since establishing himself for practice in Pittsburg about three years ago, is a young man of ability, enterprise and especially dextrous skill in his line of work, and the results of his practice have already given him a large and steadily increasing patronage from among the best citizens of Pittsburg and the surrounding country.

Dr. Moffatt was born at LeSueur, Minnesota, in 1876, being a son of Arthur B. and Fannie (Snow) Moffatt, the former a native of Illinois and the latter of New York state. His father was a prominent business man with extensive interests at LeSueur, Minnesota, for twenty years, and has a commanding position in public and business affairs. He was treasurer of the Minnesota State Agricultural Society, whose annual fair at St. Paul-Minneapolis is the best state fair in the United States. He and his wife are now residents of St. Joseph, Michigan, where he is connected with the Cooper-Wells Hosiery Company.

George S. Moffatt was reared at LeSueur, where he was educated, being graduated from the high school. He also graduated from the commercial college at Mankato, Minnesota, and then took up his professional studies in the dental department of the Northwestern University at Chicago, where he was graduated with the degree of D. D. S. in 1900. He gained six months of valuable practical, experience in the office of Dr. F. B. Merrill, of Chicago, who is a noted specialist in crown and bridge work. Early in 1901 Dr. Moffatt came to Pittsburg, which he has found a most inviting field for his work. His office was with the late Dr. J. W. Porter, who is the author of the history of the medical profession in Crawford county which finds its proper place in this work.

Dr. Moffatt was married in 1903 to Miss Blanch Andrews, of Lima, Ohio, and the daughter of a prominent oil operator of that place. The doctor and his wife are prominent in the social circle of the young people of Pittsburg, and have made many friends during their residence here.
