    W. H. OLMSTEAD, M. D. No calling or profession to which man turns his attention is so fraught with interest and responsibility as that of the physician. No student needs more thorough or painstaking training than does the man who takes up the science of materia medica. The successful physician must be quick of perception, prompt in action, capable, tender and sympathetic. Dr. W. H. Olmstead was born in Dundaff, Susquehanna county, Pennsylvania, August 22, 1862, a son of Dr. Johnson C. and Dency (Woodward) Olmstead, and grandson of Osborn and Violette Olmstead, natives of Connecticut, who migrated to Wayne county, Pennsylvania, about the beginning of the nineteenth century, where Osborn Olmstead divided his attention between agricultural pursuits and the operation of a tannery.

Woodward. judge of the supreme court of Pennsylvania. Four children were the issue of this union, Dr. W. H. Olmstead being the only surviving member at the present time (1905). Dr. Johnson C. Olmstead died in 1887, aged sixty.eight years. He survived his wife many years, her death occurring in 1864.
