Julian Curtis, M. D. Sabine Parish, Louisiana

Julian Curtis, M. D., was born at Negreet, Sabine parish, September 16, 1875, and is the third son of Dr. William R. Curtis, a pioneer physician of Sabine and a surgeon in the Civil War, and Emily Francis Moore.

His childhood days were spent at Hemphill, Texas and at Negreet, in this parish. At the age of 15 he entered the Fort Jesup Masonic Institute while the school was under the supervision of Prof. A. D. Carden, one of the South's ablest instructors.

Early in life he married Miss Nona Jackson and resided at Negreet until his father's death in 1897. Being inspired to take up his father's profession where he laid it down, he entered the Alabama Medical College at Mobile, attending one term in the fall and spring of 1897-98, and then spent two years at the Memphis Hospital College, graduating in the spring of 1901 and passed the State Board of Louisiana in May of the same year.

He located at Fort Jesup and practiced until October, 1904, when he accepted a position with the Rapides Lumber Co. at Woodworth, Louisiana, one of the Long-Bell plants, as physician and surgeon, resigning same in April, 1906, and moved to Many, where he continued the practice of his profession in partnership with Dr. D. H. Dillon until October of that year.

The succeeding seven years have been delightfully spent in the service of the Brown Lumber Co. at Shamrock, Louisiana.
