Prof. Kent O. Foltz, M. D.

Kent O. Foltz, M. D., was born at Lafayette, Ohio, February 16, 1857, and died at the Seton Hospital in Cincinnati, June 6, 1908, of acute nephritis. He graduated from the Ashland High School in 1872, afterwards attending Buchtel College at Akron, O. Subsequently he made a special study of chemistry and botany, spending several years in the drug business. Later he attended the Western Reserve Medical School in Cleveland, and the Eclectic Medical Institute, graduating from the latter in 1886.

He attended several post-graduate courses on the eye, ear, nose and throat in New York City. After several years of general practice he was elected to the Chair of Diseases of the Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat in the Eclectic Medical Institute at Cincinnati, which position he filled very creditably for the past ten years. He was president of the Ohio State Eclectic Medical Society and a member of the National and Cincinnati Societies, and associate editor of the Eclectic Medical Journal. He was consulting physician on the staff of the Seton Hospital. He was the author of two works, one on Diseases of the Eye, the other on the Nose, Throat and Ear.

He was the only son of the late William K. Foltz, M. D., of Akron, O. His mother survives him. The funeral services were held at his mother's residence in Norwood, June 8. He was incinerated at the Cincinnati Crematory, and his ashes will be buried in the family lot at Akron, O.
