DR. NORMAN D. MORRISON

 

                  Because of his extended practice and prominence in public affairs, Dr. Norman D. Morrison is one of San Mateo’s best known physicians.

             Dr. Morrison came to San Mateo eleven years ago.  From the day of his arrival he has been successful as a practicing physician and surgeon and his clientele of patients includes some of the peninsula’s most prominent families.

             Dr. Morrison has unselfishly devoted his time to civic service.  During his years of residence here he has served many terms on the Board of Health and for the splendid sanitary conditions of San Mateo, few men share more in the responsibility than Dr. Morrison.  The time that he has spent in travel has been devoted almost exclusively to the study of sanitation in other cities and the conducting of investigations from which San Mateo has appreciably benefited.

             Dr. Morrison has also been one of the most active members of the Board of Trustees of the San Mateo Union High School.  The body of men comprising this board has been devoted to their task with the gratifying result that San Mateo district boasts of one of the best high schools in the state.

             Dr. Norman D. Morrison was born on October 14, 1876 in Ontario, Canada.  He is a member of the San Mateo lodge of Elks and Masons.
