ERNEST A. VICTORS, M. D.

 

 

            Dr. Victors is one of the younger representatives of the medical fraternity in Nevada County, and is a prominent accession to the medical brotherhood in Grass Valley, his ability having gained him a creditable place in connection with his chosen calling.  He was born in Santa Clara County, California, September 16, 1874, his parents being Alberta and Maria (Roberska) Victors.  The father was of German birth, and came to America in 1866, after which he wedded Miss Roberska, who was born in South Carolina and was of German lineage.  For many generations the Victors family has numbered among its members distinguished physicians and surgeons.

            The Doctor, whose name introduces this review, is the eldest in a family of four children, and to the public schools of Alameda County, California, he is indebted for his preliminary education, which was later supplemented by a course in the State University at Berkeley, where he was graduated with the class of 1895.  Determining to make the practice of medicine his lifework, he then entered to Cooper Medical College, of San Francisco, and was graduated in 1898.  He had considerable clinical experience in the hospitals of that city, and in the year 1899 he opened an office in Grass Valley, where he has already won a good patronage.  His knowledge of the science of medicine is quite extensive and very accurate, and his laudable ambition combined with a deep human sympathy and strong intellectual force, will no doubt win him prominence and gain him a leading place in the front ranks of his professional brethren as the years pass by.
