E. C. Duncan, an able representative of the medical profession of Fredonia, Kan., is a young man of ambition and energy whom his city values, not only for his professional abilities, but also for his public spirit as a citizen. He is a son of a physician and it is not strange, therefore, that Dr. Duncan selected therapeutics as the science to which his life should he devoted. Born in Nashville, Ind., Sept. 3, 1875, he is a son of Dr. M. A. Duncan and his wife, nee Frances Kysor. Dr. M. A. Duncan is likewise a native of Indiana and was prepared for the profession of medicine at the Cincinnati Medical College, Cincinnati, Ohio. He began his practice at Nashville, Ind., but in 1885 removed to Kansas and is an active practitioner and city physician of Chanute. He is a member of the Christian church and in political affairs is a Democrat.

Dr. E. C. Duncan received his literary education in a private school, in Helena, Mont., and in 1897 began the study of medicine, which he completed at the Beaumont Medical College at St. Louis, Mo., in 1901. He began his practice that same year at Fredonia, Kan., where he has since continued, and he has been very successful, now having charge of a large practice. He is ever a close student of the progressive thought of his profession, and through his membership in the different medical fraternities keeps fully abreast with medical advance. He is secretary of the Wilson County Medical Society and also sustains membership in the Kansas State Medical Society and the American Medical Association. In 1910 he was appointed health officer of Wilson county and in 1911 was reappointed to that office. He is also medical examiner for the Aetna Life, Union Central, Penn Mutual, as well as minor insurance companies.

In 1900 Dr. Duncan married Miss Ellen, a daughter of John L. Dooley, who is vice-president of the Holloday State Bank. Dr. Duncan is a Mason and an Odd Fellow. In the Masonic order he has attained the Knights Templar degree and is Past Eminent Commander of his commandery. Both he and his wife are members of the Christian church. Dr. Duncan is a cultured gentleman, high-minded and honorable, gracious and pleasing personality, and enjoys not only the confidence of those whom he serves in his extended practice, but also the universal respect of his fellow citizens.
