    Harry E. Shilling, M. D. is one of the able physicians and surgeons of Troy, and also one of its versatile, broad and strong citizens. He was born at Troy, September 13, 1876, a son of Charles R. and Emma (Rebholz) Shilling, who were the parents of four children: David, bookkeeper at the plant of the Peter Kunz Lumber Company, Dayton, Ohio; Ida, who took a course at the Ohio State University, Columbus, where she taught for one year, later a teacher of domestic science in the public schools of Troy and at present in charge of food conservation at Kansas City, Mo.; Emma. who married E. E. Waite, of Vancouver, Wash., and Harry E. After many years spent in business activities at Troy, Charles R. Shilling is now living in comfortable and honorable retirement. Harry E. Shilling acquired his primary educational training in the public schools of Troy, and as a youth decided upon a career in the broad, difficult and interesting field of medicine and surgery. After some further preparation he entered the Cincinnati Medical College, from which he was duly graduated with the class of 1903 and the degree of Doctor of Medicine, and following this became an intern in the Cincinnati City Hospital, where he remained for eighteen months securing practical experience. In November, 1904, he came to Troy, where he established himself in the practice of his calling, and since that time his professional patronage has shown a gratifying growth, both in importance and in emoluments. He now occupies a leading position among the medical and surgical men of his county, and his worth both professionally and as a citizen is fully recognized.
