B. M. Cawley, M. D.

Among the recent additions to the medical profession of Atchison county is the gentleman whose name heads this article.  Though he has been established in the practice of his chosen profession only a short time, comparatively, he has already won the favorable attention of his fellow citizens, and is laying the foundation of his future career with exceeding care and wisdom.

Mr. Cawley is one of the native sons of the county, his birth having occurred on the 28th of July, 1871.  He is the fourth in order of birth of the six sons born to John and Mary (Welsh) Cawley, and with his brothers received a liberal public school education and excellent home training.  Having finished his preliminary studies he pursued a course at Campbell University, of Holton, Kansas, and subsequently was successfully engaged in teaching in the public schools of this county for several terms.

Having determined to enter the medical profession, he commenced studying along that line under the guidance of P. S. Michael, of Atchison, Kansas, and later went to St. Louis, where he entered the local medical college.  After thoroughly mastering the work outlined by that institution, Dr. Cawley was granted a diploma and the degree of Doctor of Medicine was conferred upon him.  For years he has been a great student eagerly gathering knowledge wherever he might, and thoroughly posting himself in everything pertaining to disease and its treatment.

The result of his systematic application is apparent in all of his undertakings, and since he opened an office in Arrington, in 1898, his progress has been marked and truly gratifying.  As a patriotic citizen should, he takes much interest in the prosperity and improvement of the town and county, using his influence in the direction of progress along all lines of activity.  Politically his preference is for the Republican party.  Personally he is courteous and genial in manner, readily making friends, and is popular with the general public.
