Packard M.D., Charles D. one of the leading physicians of the city of Rhinelander, Oneida County, was born in New London, Wis., May 31, 1868. He was educated in the public schools, graduated from the New London High school, after which he enter Rush Medical College at Chicago and later the College of Physicians, being graduated from the latter with the class of 1893. In the same year he came to Rhinelander and began the practice of his profession, forming a partnership with Dr. A. D. DANIELS, with whom he was associated for about ten years. He then took up practice alone, which he continued until 1913, when, on account of poor health, he gave up medical practice and engaged in farming on a farm of 360 acres which he owned in which is now the town of Stella, but which was then in the town of Pelican. This place was partly improved but Dr. PACKARD developed it more thoroughly, bringing 160 acres under the plow, and carrying on general farming and dairying. In 1918 he returned to the city and resume the practice of his profession, in which he has since continued, and has built up a good practice and an excellent reputation as physician and surgeon. He is a member of the Oneida, Vilas and Forest Counties Medical Society and of the American Medical Association, while his fraternal society affiliations are with the Masonic order, in which he has advanced as far as the Chapter. As a citizen he takes a keen interest in the general progress of the community in which he lives and enjoys considerable personal popularity. He still owns his farm in the town of Stella. On Oct. 6, 1897, Dr. PACKARD was united in marriage at Oregon, Ill., with Laura S. SANDERSON. He and his wife are the parents of two children: John, who was graduated from the Rhinelander High School and is now a student in the Wisconsin State University, and Door, also a graduate of Rhinelander High School, who is acting as his father's representative on the farm. The family faith is that of the Episcopal Church.
