1866 to 1877 and then removed to Allentown.

Dr. F. R. Krebs practised at Hamburg from 1857
to 1894, when he removed to Reading; and he was
succeeded by Dr. Frederick Isett, and Dr. Joseph
Hatzfield, who had been students under him.

The Hahnemann Medical Society of Reading
was organized in 1882, in the office of Dr. Samuel
R. Rittenhouse, at No. 38 South Fourth street, by
eight homoeopathic physicians of Reading, and it
had an active existence for about ten years.

The Homoeopathic Practitioners Association
OF Reading was organized in 1896 and it has come
to be the representative society of the homoeopathic
school of medicine in this vicinity. The meetings
are held monthly for the discussion of scientific
papers ; and the July or midsummer meeting is held
at one of the mountain resorts near the city. The
midsummer meeting is also attended by members
of the homoeopathic county societies of eastern
Pennsylvania.

Homoeopathic Medical and Surgical Hospi-
tal OF Reading. — During the summer of 1888, Dr.
E. R. Scholl invited the homoeopathic physicians
of Reading to assemble at his office, No. 517 Wal-
nut street, to organize a Homoeopathic Dispensary
Association, and an organization was then effected
by the election of Dr. Scholl as president and Dr.
D. C. Kline as secretary. They proceeded immedi-
ately to open a dispensary at the corner of Franklin
and Plum streets, and rendered much needed serv-
ice to the poor of the city. Upon being incorpor-
ated in 1891, a board of trustees was organized and
the present property on North Sixth street, beyond
Washington, was purchased through the generosity
of friends and the public; and the trustees were
enabled to open the hospital in July, 1891.

Many ladies became interested in its welfare and
they organized a "Ladies Auxiliary," which rend-
ered valuable service in the maintenance of the
hospital. Later a "Young Ladies Auxiliary" was
organized " to supply flowers, delicacies and luxur-
ies" to patients, and they raised funds at various
times for the renovation of parts of the hospital,
and the purchase of instruments and supplies.

A training school for nurses has been conducted
in the hospital from the beginning, proving of great
benefit to the hospital in addition to the training of
young women as nurses, in the community.

From time to time various improvements were
made to the building, fitting it more thoroughly for
a hospital, until in 1905 the demand for rooms be-



came so great that a new building was erected in
the rear of the main building, increasing the capa-
city to seventy-five beds in public and private wards
and private rooms, and giving the city a modern
and up-to-date hospital under homoeopathic man-
agement.

The staff of the hospital is selected from the
members of the "Homoeopathic Hospital and Dis-
pensary Association," and while varying somewhat
from time to time the following physicians consti-
tuted the staff for ] 909 : W. F. Marks, S. L. Dreib-
elbis, L. A. Shollenberger, D. C. Kline, H. F.
Schantz, C. R. Haman, M. Hassler Schantz, L. M.
Richards, F. E. Howell, and W. A. Haman.
