George C. Shaw, a prominent veterinary surgeon of the city of Washington, Kan., was born in Fredonia, Wilson county, that State, August 9, 1885, the son of Robert and Jennie (Jarvis) Shaw. His parents are natives of the State of Illinois and came to Kansas in the early '80s, locating first in Wilson county, where his father engaged in farming and stock raising.

Following his attendance at Manhattan he secured a position with the Percheron Horse Company, of Omaha, Neb., and while serving with this corporation began his studies of the horse.
