Dorus H. Piper, M. D., a well known member of the medical profession, is a native of Kansas, born in Jackson county June 29, 1879. He is a son of John and Ella (Lytten) Piper, natives of Ohio. They came to Kansas and located in Jackson county, where the father engaged in farming and stock raising. Dr. Piper was reared on a farm and in early life attended the district schools of Jackson county. He worked hard for his education and practically paid his own way through both preparatory and medical schools. After obtaining a good academic education he took a three-years' course in Campbell University at Holton, Kan., and after teaching and working two years entered the Kansas Medical College, then a branch of Washburn College, Topeka. He graduated from this institution in the class of 1907 with the degree of Doctor of Medicine. He then located in Lyons county and engaged in the practice of his profession at Admire, where he remained two years, when he accepted the position as house physician at the St. Joseph Hospital, remaining there in that capacity until February, 1910, when he came to Axtell and engaged in practice again. In 1911 he formed a partnership with Dr. Newman. This arrangement continued about one year, when the partnership was dissolved, and Dr. Piper has since been engaged in practice alone and has built up a very satisfactory business. He is a capable physician and has been successful.

He was united in marriage, November 20, 1907, to Miss Pearl, daughter of George and Lucy (Kirk) Best, of St. Joseph, Mo., both natives of Iowa. The father was a steamboat captain on the Mississippi river in early life and later a superintendent for the Hammond Packing Company, of St. Joseph, Mo. Mrs. Piper was born at Montrose, Iowa, and came to St. Joseph with her parents when a child, where she was educated in the public schools, graduating from the high school, and later attended business college. Dr. and Mrs. Piper have one child, Dorus, Jr., born July 5, 1909. Dr. Piper is a member of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, the Knights and Ladies of Security, Woodmen of the World, the Eastern Star and the County, State and American Medical associations, and Mrs. Piper is a member of the Eastern Star and belongs to the Latter Day Saints (reorganized) church.
