Lot D. Mabie, M. D., one of the general surgeons of Bethany Hospital, Kansas City, Kan., was born at Warsaw, Ind., Feb. 7, 1866, the son of Lot and Zippora Elizabeth (Jaques) Mabie. His paternal grandfather, Peter Mabie, was a native of New York, who came to Indiana with his family about 1850 and engaged in farming. At the outbreak of the Civil war he enlisted in the Union army and served until the cessation of hostilities. About 1870 he moved to Iowa, where he resided until his death. Dr. Mabie's father was born in New York and moved to Indiana with his parents, who were among the early settlers of Kosciusko county. He engaged in farming there until his death. The Doctor's maternal grandparents were natives of West Virginia, who went to Indiana at an early day, being the first whites to settle in Kosciusko county.

Dr. Mabie was educated in the public schools of his native state and then entered Purdue University at Lafayette, Ind., where he graduated in 1889. After leaving college he entered a drug store at Warsaw, Ind., but decided to try his fortunes in the West and came to Kansas, in 1890. In Kansas City, Kan., he bought a drug store, which he owned until 1905. While operating his drug store he became interested in medicine and, in 1895, entered a medical college, graduating in 1897. After receiving his degree he began to work in Bethany Hospital, of which he is one of the general surgeons. In 1905 he disposed of his drug business and opened an office in Kansas City, Kan. He has a large and growing practice and as he devotes much of his time to surgery is very busy. The Doctor is a member of the county, state and American Medical societies. He has served as president of the County Medical Society; was county physician for four years; is a Republican in politics; takes an interest in all public questions and served as county commissioner from 1899 to 1901. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity and of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.

In 1889 Dr. Mabie married Bessie McClure, daughter of John McClure, a contractor who lived in Indiana. Four children have been born to the Doctor and his wife—Ruth, at home; Margaret, attending high school; Elizabeth, also in school, and L. D., Jr., an infant. Mrs. Mabie is a member of the Baptist church.
