MARVIN K. PAUP, M. D.
Among the progressive and able representatives of the medical profession of Riverside County is numbered Dr. Marvin K. Paup, who is practicing in Corona, with offices in the Citizens Bank Building on Sixth Street at Main. Born on a farm in Shelby County, Iowa, May 7, 1901, he is a son of Leonard and Mary (Edwards) Paup, who are also natives of that state, and were married there. They are now residents of Hollywood, California, where the father has financial interests. To Mrs. and Mrs. Leonard Paup were born four children, all of whom are living.
Reared in the Hawkeye state, Dr. Paup was graduated from the Phoenix Union high school with the class of 1920, and with the removal of the family to California he entered Occidental College at Los Angeles, attending that institution for two years. At Berkeley he enrolled as a student in the University of California, which awarded him the A. B. degree in 1924 and that of M. D. in 1928. His scholarship won for him the post of interne in the Methodist Hospital at Los Angeles, where he first had an opportunity to make practical use of his theoretical knowledge. He entered upon his career as a physician and surgeon at Morenci, Arizona, where he spent two years, afterward returning to Los Angeles, where he maintained an office for eight months, and has since followed his profession in Corona with gratifying success. He gives special attention to orthopedic work and is a skilled surgeon whose services are in constant demand.
In 1922 Dr. Paup was married to Miss Harriette Tipton, now deceased, a daughter of Frank B. Tipton, of Nebraska, and they became the parents of four children: Marvin K., Jr., Harriette Mae, Rollin Todd and Leonard Courtney. On June 2, 1933, Dr. Paup was married to Corinne Vincent. The Doctor enjoys outdoor life and plays golf for relaxation. A farm-bred boy, he has always been interested in agricultural pursuits and is the owner of a productive ranch devoted to the growing of grapefruit and pecans. He is identified with the Knights of Pythias and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His religious views are in harmony with the doctrines of the Methodist Episcopal Church, which shape his conduct. He belongs to the Riverside County and California State Medical Societies, to the American Medical Association, and to Phi Chi, a medical fraternity. He is an earnest, untiring student of his profession and in his practice exemplifies its highest ethics.
