Harter, A. F., M. D. (26 December 1882 - 19??)


A. F. HARTER, M. D., physician and surgeon, who has been established professionally at Marathon City for the past seven years, has built up a practice which includes many families in the town and those residing within a radius of ten miles south, ten miles north, six miles east and three miles west, and in attending to so large a number distributed over so wide a territory, finds himself a very busy man. Dr. Harter was born at Campbellsport, Wis., December 26, 1882, and is a son of J. V. and Catherine Harter, the former of whom died at Milwaukee, Wis., and the latter of whom is a resident of Marathon City.  


A. F. Harter first attended the parochial school in his native place, then the public schools at Milwaukee, then Marquette College at Milwaukee, and secured his medical training in the Wisconsin College of Physicians and Surgeons at Milwaukee. After some experience in St. Francis Hospital, at La Crosse, he came to Marathon City in June, 1905, succeeding Dr. William Gorholt. Dr. Harter is a member of the county and state medical societies and of the American Medical Association. Formerly he was physician for a number of insurance bodies. He has a fine library and well equipped office in his residence which is located on the east side of Main Street, Marathon City.  


Dr. Harter married Miss Winifred Slattery, who was born at Milwaukee and is a daughter of Michael Slattery. Dr. and Mrs. Harter have two children: Winifred and Alipia. They are members of St. Mary's Catholic Church and Dr. Harter is identified fraternally with the Catholic Order of Foresters. Although his political convictions make him a stanch Democrat he has never engaged actively in politics but both in his profession and in his citizenship commands the respect and enjoys the esteem of those who know him in either relation.
