Corda E. Beeman, M. D.

Page 632-633 - Corda E. Beeman, M. D. Specialization is the art of this age. In practically every profession and line of business a small percentage of those engaged abandon the attempt to become sufficiently proficient in all lines and branches to maintain a general, versatile practice or management. Through university training, post-graduate work and special application the subject of this record has become particularly a specialist in diseases and surgery of the eye and an authority upon cataract surgery. Doctor Beeman was born in the state of New York on January 27, 1874, and was brought to Evart, Osceola county, Michigan by his parents when a child of two years of age. He graduated from Evart High School, and then from Cleveland Homeopathic Medical College in 1903. He served an internship at Huron St. Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, for two years, and then returned to Evart, Michigan, where he engaged in general practice for five years. After securing this foundation in the general practice for specialized work the Doctor went to India, where he took post-graduate work in cataract surgery in Dr. H. T. Hollandís Eye Clinic at Shikarpur, India, in 1921-22. In 1907 Doctor Beeman located at Grand Rapids, and has here built up a very large practice, limiting his work largely to diseases and surgery of the eye and more especially cataract surgery. Doctor Beeman is a member of the Homeopathic State and National Associations, Kent County, Michigan State and American Medical Associations. He also has taken post-graduate work at Vienna, Austria, Zurich, Switzerland, New York City at the Knapp Eye Memorial Hospital and New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, and at Chicago Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital, is a member of the American College of Surgery and is on the consulting staff in ophthalmology at Blodgett Hospital in Grand Rapids, and is on the staff of the Blind Association. In addition to his heavy professional duties, Doctor Beeman has carried on his affiliation with the Masonic order, is a Knight Templar and Shriner and is affiliated with the Westminster Presbyterian Church. In 1906 he married Miss Amy Hoag, of Springport, Michigan, and they are the proud parents of two children, Carl B., a junior at the Grand Rapids High School, and Adelia, a student in the East Grand Rapids High School.
