C. W. Ward, a leading physician of Lenora, Kan., was born in Osborne, this State, June 16, 1885, son of David and Clara M. Ward, natives of New York, who came to Kansas in the early '70s and settled in Marshall county, removing to Osborne county in 1878, where they took a homestead south of the town of Osborne. After a short time David Ward entered the mercantile business in Osborne. He later went into the real estate business and was register of deeds of the county for three or four terms. He was prominent in the politics in this section of the State. His death occurred in Osborne in 1908.

The subject of our sketch was raised in the town of his birth, attending its public schools and graduating from the high school in 1904, after which he taught school for two years. In 1906 he began the study of medicine at the Kansas University, from which he graduated in 1910 with the degree of Doctor of Medicine. He is a member of the Nu Sigma Nu. After leaving college he located at Almena, Kan., remaining there for a few months, and then located in Lenora, where he has since practiced his profession. He is a member of the State, County and American Medical associations, of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Eastern Star and of the Modern Woodmen of America. In politics he is a Republican. Dr. Ward was a member of the Osborne militia and acted as guard in the famous Dewey case, which was tried in Norton county and lasted for forty-two consecutive days. Dr. Ward's success is the result of his own well directed efforts. He paid his own way through college.
