Charles McKinley, M. D., a talented and successful physician of Strong City, Kan., is a native of Indiana, having been born in Knox county, that state, Oct. 30, 1874. He is the second son of Robert McKinley, who was born in Knox county, Indiana, in June, 1840, and was educated in the public schools of that county. He became a farmer and was married in 1867 to Miss Julia Haupt, the daughter of Jacob Haupt, a native farmer of North Carolina. Three children were born to Robert and Julia (Haupt) McKinley; William, who was born in 1869 and now lives at Oklahoma City, Okla.; Charles, of this record; and Jacob, who died in infancy. The father now resides at Greensburg, Kiowa county, Kansas, where he continues to follow his vocation of farming; the mother died in 1877 in Knox county, Indiana.

Dr. McKinley was educated in the public schools of Kiowa county, Kansas, and at the Kansas State Normal School at Emporia and graduated from the latter school with the class of 1898. He had determined upon the profession of medicine as his life work but prior to taking up its study, he became a teacher and taught four years—two years at Caney, Kan., and two years at Independence. He then matriculated in the medical department of the University of Kansas as a medical student and was graduated with the class of 1906.
