      DR. FREDERICK A. KIEHLE, M. D. For twenty years Dr. Frederick A. Kiehle
      has been engaged in the practice of medicine in Portland and during this
      period has gained an extensive practice, and is today regarded as one of the
      leading physicians of this city. He was born in Preston, Minnesota, in August,
      1872, and is a son of David L. and Mary (Gilman) Kiehle, who were married in
      New York city. They became the parents of four children, Frederick A. and
      three daughters. David L. Kiehle possessed a thorough education, served for
      seven years as president of the State Normal School at St. Cloud and for
      thirteen years as state superintendent of public instruction of Minnesota and
      later was a member of the faculty of the University of Minnesota.

      Frederick A. Kiehle received his preliminary education in the public
      schools of St. Cloud and Minneapolis, Minnesota, and then entered the
      University of Minnesota, from which he was graduated with the degree of
      Bachelor of Arts in 1894. Later he entered the medical school of his alma
      mater, from which he was graduated, with the degree of Doctor of Medicine in
      1901. After serving one year as interne in St. Joseph's Hospital in St. Paul,
      the Doctor entered upon the practice of his profession in Utah, where he
      remained four years. He then went to Europe for a year's study, and in 1908
      came to Portland, where he has met with large professional success.

      On October 2, 1913, in Oxford, England, Dr. Kiehle was united in marriage
      to Miss Clare Cross, who was a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota. She attended
      the public schools of that city and later graduated from the University of
      Minnesota. Dr. and Mrs. Kiehle have two children, David Litchard, now fourteen
      years of age, and Katherine Gilman, twelve years old, both of whom are
      attending school in France for one year. Dr. Kiehle is a member of the
      Multnomah County Medical Society, the Oregon State Medical Society and the
      American Medical Association and is a Fellow of the American College of
      Surgeons and other national societies, while socially he belongs to the
      Arlington Club, the University Club, the Multnomah Club and the Waverly Golf
      Club. Dr. Kiehle enlisted for service in the United States Naval Reserve
      during the late war and received a commission as lieutenant, with which rank
      he was honorably discharged at the close of the war. He has served for the
      port five years as a member of the board of directors of the Portland Public
      Library.

    • David Litchard Keihle^ b. Feb. 7, 1837. The following
      is from a sketch found in a History of Minnesota:

      "Professor David Litchard Keihle spent his youth in the
      graded schools of Dansville, N. Y. ; began to teach at sixteen years
      of age ; attended the State Normal School at Albany, and gradu-
      ated in 1856 ; taught three years in the Canandaigua Academy ;
      entered the junior class of Hamilton College, Clinton, New York,
      in 1859, and graduated in 1861, one of the 'honor' members of the
      class. While in college, in addition to the classical course, he con-
      nected himself with the laboratory and took a special Course in
      chemistry. He taught a graded school in Monroe, Michigan, dur-
      ing the year 1862 ; then took a full course of studies in the Union
      Theological Seminary ; was graduated in 1865, and ordained to the
      Presbyterian ministry. While preparing for this work he taught
      in the Polytechnic and Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn, in all
      nearly three years.

      "In 1865 he came to Minnesota, organized a Presbyterian
      Church at Preston, Fillmore County, became its pastor and re-
      mained there ten years. During the last six of those years he was
      County Superintendent of Schools, driven into that work on ac-
      count of poor health. By riding on horseback from school to
      school, and from town to town, he gradually improved, and was
      able to fill the requirements of the office. During five of these
      years that he was Superintendent he preached once a day on Sun-
      day, simply supplying the pulpit without doing pastoral work.
      The last three years that he was at Preston he was one of the di-
      rectors of the State Normal Schools; in 1875 was appointed by
      the board to take charge of the Normal School at Saint Cloud. Li
      1 88 1 he resigned this position to accept the appointment of
      State Superintendent of Public Instruction of Minnesota. In
      this position he remained through six successive reappointments
      until 1893, when he resigned, accepting an election as Professor of Pedagogy in the University of Minnesota. In this position he
      remained until his resignation in 1902.

      "The subject of education seems to be the one absorbing theme
      with him. His best thoughts, his time, his energies are devoted to
      the questions, "What is modern education, and how can it be made
      available and practical in the philosophy and theories of the
      day ?"

      From this sketch it is evident that Professor Keihle is not only
      a zealous and devoted educator, but that he is a man of notable
      ability, and that he has by his merits won the distinction he has
      been favored with. When last heard from he was engaged in the
      composition of a work the title of which is "A Philosophy of the
      History of Education," which may be expected to embody his best
      and maturest conceptions. On the 25th of July, 1864, he was mar-
      ried to Miss Mary Oilman, of Dansville, N. Y. They have four
      children :
