Charles Adams

Adams, Charles, physician and surgeon, Reliance Bldg., Chicago, Ill., was born on Nov. 29, 1847, in Northamptonshire, England.  

He was educated in Milwaukee, Wis., and in 1862 became a bookkeeper to his father in the live stock business in Chicago. In 1869 he became a student in the Hahnemann College until 1872, spending a year in that institution as house surgeon. After studying a year in London, he practiced medicine in Chicago until 1896, since which time his practice has been confined exclusively to surgery. He has been professor of surgical pathology in the Hahnemann Medical College, and professor of the principles and practice of surgery in the Chicago Homeopathic College. 

For nearly fifteen years he was surgeon-major of the First Illinois infantry, and in 1908-13 was surgeon-general of the state of Illinois.
