CARL F. BACHMANN, M. D., Ph. D., medical practitioner of Clark County, was born in Sacramento, Cal., Aug. 7, 1874, a son of Carl F., Sr., and Margaret (Claussen) Bachmann. He received his early training in his native city, and his higher education in a gymnasium in Germany, also taking military tactics. Upon his return to this country he taught in the English high school.

In 1893 he was graduated from the Pittsburg College of Pharmacy and became manager of a drug business in that city. In 1894 he taught chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh. He then went to Philadelphia, where he was graduated from the Jefferson Medical College in 1896, returning in the fall of that year to Pittsburgh.

In 1897 he again went to Germany and took a post-graduate course in the University of Berlin. With this preparation he practiced medicine in Pittsburg for two years. It was at the end of that period that Dr. Bachmann came to Wisconsin, locating first in Athens, Marathon County, where he practiced his profession until 1904, removing to Neillsville May 1, that year, and establishing himself at his present location. The practice to which he succeeded was established originally by Dr. Esch, who was subsequently associated with Dr. Lyman, after which Dr. Lacy was admitted to partnership. That medical firm was succeeded by that of Conroy & Conroy, whose was Dr. Bachmann. The latter was associated a year with Dr. Conroy, since the end of which time he has practiced alone. At one time, with Dr. Conroy, he established a hospital in Neillsville, but after a while was discontinued. Dr. Bachmann is a member of the county and American Medical associations; also of the Blue Lodge and Chapter of the Masonic Order, of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and of the Woodmen and other fraternal orders. It is interesting to note that while engaged in chemical work, Dr. Bachmann produced the formula for the composition now on the market under the name of Arsenaura, though he has never received any recompense for its manufacture. He has been active in patriotic work, and though bearing a foreign name, is a thorough American citizen, who believes in the United States first and only. His talents, and splendid training has been placed at the disposal of the government, by his signing with the Department of National Defense at Washington as an eye and ear specialist.

Dr. Bachmann was first married in 1897, to Emma Suesenguth, a native of Saxony, Germany, who died two years later. He married, secondly, Wilhelmina Mueller, a descendant of French Huguenots, who fled to Germany to escape persecution.
