David Benjamin Hagerman, M. D.

Page 254 - David Benjamin Hagerman, M. D. Before he has completed his first decade of his professional career in Grand Rapids, this intelligent, progressive medical practitioner has not only shown a full recognition of the responsibilities and obligations devolving upon a member of his profession, but has already reached that stage in his career where he is receiving recognition as a specialist in surgery and obstetrics. Dr. Hagerman was born on a farm in Fulton county, Ohio, on January 18, 1888. After attending the public schools of his community he graduated from Wauseon, Ohio, high school in 1909 and graduated from the medical department of the University of Michigan in 1914. He served an internship of one year and then devoted two years to special work when he was made medical instructor in the University of Michigan during the World war. After this thorough period of preparation in both the practical and theoretical phases of his profession, Doctor Hagerman came to Grand Rapids in 1918, where he has rapidly advanced in his practice. He keeps in touch with his profession through membership in the Kent County Medical Society, Michigan State and American Medical Associations. As heretofore noted he is now specializing in surgery and obstetrics. Dr. Hagerman is a member of Theta Kappa Psi Medical Fraternity, and devotes the time free from his professional duties to the Masonic orders, in which he is a thirty-second degree Mason and Shriner, and to the Century Club, of which he was one of the organizers in 1915, and a charter member and president. Doctor Hagerman was married on August 20, 1914, to Miss Dorothy M. Tuttle, of Manchester, New Hampshire, and they have one son, David Benjamin, Junior, who was born October 29, 1918.
