James A. Fulton, M. D., one of the medical staff of the Bethany Hospital, was born in Jefferson county, Kansas, Dec. 25, 1879, the son of Thomas H. and Ella G. (Hull) Fulton. James Fulton, the father of Thomas H., was a native of Scotland, who came to America when he was a boy and located in Ohio, where he engaged in farming. Dr. Fulton's father was born, reared and received his education in that state. He came to Kansas in 1868, located at Leavenworth and for some years drove the stage from Leavenworth to Topeka. When the railroads were built and stages went out of use, he taught school and then bought a farm. At the present time he is living in Winchester, Kan. In politics he is a Republican and his church affiliations are with the Presbyterian denomination. Dr. Fulton's maternal grandfather was a native of Ohio, and in 1850 came to Kansas.

Dr. Fulton received his elementary education in the public schools of Jefferson county. He determined to study medicine and entered the medical department of the University of Kansas, graduating in 1903. After receiving his degree he located in Kansas City, Kan., and soon had a promising practice and at present is regarded as one of the most successful physicians of that city. Dr. Fulton married Rosa K. Flack in 1905. She was the daughter of Frederick Flack, a merchant of Kansas City, Mo. Two children have been born to them—Ralph A. and Gladys D. Dr. Fulton is a member of the county, state and American medical societies; he is secretary of the county medical organization and was secretary of the board of health for three and a half years. He specializes in obstetrics and diseases of children. He is a Republican in politics, takes an interest in all public questions tending to the welfare of the city and is a member of the board of education of Kansas City, Kan., a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and both he and his wife are members of the Presbyterian church.
