Willis Dana Storrs, a leading surgeon of Topeka, is a native Kansan, having been born on Feb. 14, 1870, in what was then the village of Quindaro, Wyandotte county, Kansas. The parents of Dr. Storrs were Sylvester Dana and Fannie Terry Storrs. (See sketch of Sylvester Dana Storrs.) Dr. Storrs is not only a native of Kansas but that state has been his home ever since the day of his birth, having lived in Topeka since he was a lad seven years old. He received his first educational training in the Topeka schools, and his college education at Washburn College, in which institution he not only completed a literary course of five years' duration, but also completed a three years course in the medical department, graduating in 1895 and receiving the degree of Doctor of Medicine. He at once began the practice of medicine in Topeka, and was successful from the start. During his practice he has been a constant reader of the most advanced thought in his profession and has done much post-graduate work, it being his custom to take a course of this sort of from one to three months each year. In the five years he has devoted practically all of his attention to surgery and he is regarded as one exceptionally skilled in that science.

On Dec. 30, 1902, Dr. Storrs was married to Miss Laura Elizabeth Weidling of Topeka, but a native of Iowa. Dr. Storrs is a member of the Shawnee County Medical Society, the Golden Belt Medical Society, the Kansas State Medical Society, the Northeast Kansas Medical Society and of the American Medical Association. He is also a member of the surgical staff of the St. Francis Hospital. He is a Thirty-second degree Scottish Rite Mason, and also a Noble of the Mystic Shrine, a member of the Congregational church.
