Clay Ephraim Coburn.—As a representative member of the medical profession, as member and ex-president of the Kansas State Board of Health, Dr. Coburn merits distinctive recognition in this publication. He was born in Pomona, Franklin county, Kansas, Dec. 27, 1872, the son of Hon. F. D. and Lou (Jenkins) Coburn, personal mention of whom appears elsewhere. His early education was acquired in the public schools of Shawnee and Wyandotte counties, following which he completed a course in the Kansas State Agricultural College, graduating in 1891. He then entered the Kansas City Hahnemann Medical College and was graduated with the degree of Doctor of Medicine in 1899. In the same year he spent some time in post-graduate work in the New York Post-Graduate Hospital. On receiving his degree, Dr. Coburn located for practice in Kansas City, Kan., his present residence, where he has built up a large and lucrative practice and is recognized as one of the most prominent physicians of his school in the state. He is a member of the staff of Bethany Hospital of his home city; teacher on diseases of the chest in Kansas City Hahnemann Medical College; a member of the Kansas State Board of Health and served as president of that body in 1910. He is also a member of the American Institute of Homeopathy and Kansas State Homepathic Society and has served as secretary, vice-president and president of the latter organization.

Dr. Coburn was married on Dec. 19, 1900, to Miss Pauline Pittman, of Kansas City, Kan., a daughter of the late Frank Pittman, a prominent attorney of that city. Dr. and Mrs. Coburn are the parents of two sons: Dwight Coburn, Jr., born Oct. 10, 1902, and Donald Fairchild Coburn, born April 15, 1907. Mrs. Coburn is a woman of broad culture and popular in the social circles of her home city. She and her husband are members of the First Presbyterian Church.
