     FRANK E. CULP, M. D., physician and surgeon, Wenatchee, Chelan county, is a native of the Buckeye state, having been born in Quincy, Ohio, January 23, 1873.  His parents are both Ohioans, his father, John H., being a descendant of a distinguished Virginian family.  He served the government during the Civil War, not as an enlisted man, but in the capacity of a blacksmith.  His father was a soldier in the War of 1812, and at present resides at Wenatchee, where he conducts a brickyard.  The mother, Sarah (Hubbell) Culp, is also a resident of Wenatchee.
     Our subject remained in Ohio until the age of twelve years, when he removed to Genesee, Kansas, and was in that state eighteen months, going thence to Illinois, where he remained five years.  Here he was graduated from Eureka College, Eureka, and then matriculated in in the medical department of the University of Illinois, Chicago, and in the College of Physicians and Surgeons, from which he was graduated in 1896.  The two years following, he was house surgeon of the Grand Rapids hospital in Michigan.  Returning to his home in Quincy, he continued in practice two years, thence going to Wenatchee, Washington, in 1900, where he has since continued, with a steadily increasing practice, with the exception of six months spent in taking a post-graduate course in the Chicago College of Physicians and Surgeons.
     Dr. Culp has three sisters, Belle, wife of Frank Reeves, elsewhere mentioned in this work; Nellie, single; and Zelma, widow of William Hines, Wenatchee, Washington.  The fraternal affiliations of Dr. Culp are with Valley Lodge, No. 186, K. of P., Wenatchee; Wenatchee Aerie No. 204, Fraternal Order of Eagles; the K. 0. T. M., Quincy, Ohio; the Phi Ro Sigma College, Medical Fraternity, Chicago, and the State Medical Society of Ohio.  Politically he is a Democrat but not an enthusiastic partisan.  Of that excellent organization, the Wenatchee brass band, he is a member, playing a saxophone.
