(Klass) McIntyre, natives of Scotland and Germany, respectively, who in young manhood and young womanhood emigrated to
this country and located in Minnesota. There they met and were married and took up their abode in the city of Litchfield, where the father was
for years engaged in the real-estate business. He was a republican in politics and a prominent factor in his party in his section. He

which he was graduated with the class of 1909. Feeling in need of more practical knowledge of pathological conditions of various kinds, he
served as an interne in the Asbury Hospital in Minneapolis and later in the City and County Hospital in St. Paul. In June, 1910, he removed to
Bradley, South Dakota, where he has since resided. In the intervening five years he has built up one of the largest practices of any
practitioner in the country districts of the state. He is also vice president of the board of health of Clark county and county physician,
and in his official connection does much for the cause of public hygiene and in the prevention of disease. Although his medical course
