HIGGINS, Curran W., the medical director of the great Northwestern National Life Insurance Company, is a Northwestern farmer boy. His father, a native of Massachusetts, became a merchant in early life in Jefferson county, Wis. In 1858 he moved to Dodge county, Minn., and took up a farm. He was a man of comfortable financial circumstances. He had two brothers who were physicians and two who were ministers. They were all early Michigan pioneers. Dr. Higgins' mother was Nancy Lavina Patee. She was born in Vermont, and married in Michigan. Her mother was of the family of the beloved P. P. Bliss, whose songs have made him immortal. Dr. Higgins was born at Hebron, Jefferson county, Wis., September 16, 1849. He came to Minnesota with his parents in 1858 and lived on the farm, where he worked in summer. Winters he attended the country schools until he was nineteen years old. He then entered the Groveland Seminary at Wasioja, Minn. It was an excellent institution of which L. B. Allen,  was principal. When competent to teach school he spent the years 1870-1871 at that work. The next step was to the University of Minnesota, which he entered in October, 1872. He remained in the university two years. In addition to the school work of the second year he took up the study of medicine under the direction of Dr. William H. Leonard, of Minneapolis. In the fall of 1874 he entered Hahnemann Medical College of Chicago, and graduated with honors in 1876. He then commenced his practice at Corning, Iowa, where he remained three years. After this experience he removed to Dakota Territory, where he opened a drug store, and practiced his profession, at Brookings, for ten years. In 1889 he removed to Minnesota, passed the required state examination, and began practicing in Minneapolis, where he has since secured a large patronage and an enviable reputation. Dr. Higgins has always been an interested student in the principles of life insurance. When he took up his residence in Minneapolis in 1889, he became connected with the medical department of the Northwestern Life Association. In 1895 he was appointed state manager for a large Eastern life company, and served in that capacity for two years, and until he was elected vice president and medical director of the National Mutual Life Association of Minneapolis. When this organization was consolidated with the Northwestern Life Association, under the style of the Northwestern National Life Insurance Company, Dr. Higgins was elected a director and medical director of the consolidated organization, which positions he now holds. Dr. Higgins is a Republican in politics. He is a Mason, being a member of the Minnesota Lodge. He is also a member of the Minneapolis Commercial Club. In religion he is a Baptist. He joined the Baptist church of Wasioja in 1869, and is now a member of the Calvary Baptist church of Minneapolis. In 1872 he was married to Retta E. Stockwell. They have three children: Clarence, a graduate of the Minneapolis Academy and now a senior in Fargo College, N. D., expecting to enter the Chicago Law College when he graduates; Mrs. Eva . Marsh, a graduate of the Minneapolis Central High School, and Maude A. Higgins, now a junior of the same high school.
