LAWRENCE A. CHEESE, D. D. S.
Dr. Lawrence A. Cheese, actively engaged in the practice of dentistry in Evanston, is one of the younger representatives of the profession, thoroughly in touch with the most advanced scientific methods that underlie the mechanical part of the dentist's work.
He was born in Lenox, Iowa, January 3, 1892, and is a son of John L. Cheese, who was a native of Illinois and of English descent. The family was founded in America by Edward Cheese, the grandfather of Dr. Cheese of this review. John L. Cheese was reared and educated in Illinois and following his marriage removed to Iowa, where he engaged in agricultural pursuits. In September, 1898, he removed westward with his family and established his home in Evanston, where he has since been successfully engaged in building operations, being today numbered among the leading building contractors of this city. Evidences of his skill and handiwork are seen on all sides and show him to be a master of the trade which has long engaged his attention. His political endorsement is given to the republican party and he is one of the active workers in its local ranks. He has served as a member of the city council and at all times stands for those things which are a matter of civic virtue and of civic pride. He married Fannie C. Loveridge, a native of Alexis, Illinois, and of English descent. They are the parents of five children.
Dr. Cheese had a twin brother, Clarence, who passed away February 4, 1916. Lawrence A. Cheese was educated in the public schools of Evanston having been but six years of age at the time of the removal of the family to this city. He passed through consecutive grades to his graduation from the high school with the class of 1912 and afterward, in preparation for a professional career, he entered the dental department of the Northwestern University at Chicago, Illinois, and won his professional degree upon graduation with the class of 1915. He then returned to Evanston, where he entered upon active practice, and has since devoted his attention to his professional duties, which are constantly growing in volume and importance. He has been accorded the patronage of many of the best people of the city and his practice is extensive and gratifying. He displays marked mechanical skill and ingenuity, which is always a feature of successful dental practice, and he has, too, an intimate knowledge of the principles of dental science and keeps in touch with the trend of modem professional thought and progress. He has membership in the Wyoming State Dental Society.
On the 9th of October, 1915, in Evanston, Dr. Cheese was united in marriage to Miss Dorothy Feldhahn, a native of Chicago and a daughter of Frederick and Helen Feldhahn, the former now deceased. Dr. and Mrs. Cheese have become the parents of two children: Edith Marie, born August 21, 1916; and Clarence Raymond, born October 9, 1917.
The Doctor gives his political allegiance to the republican party and his religious faith is that of the Methodist church. He demands the respect, confidence and goodwill of all with whom he is associated by reason of an upright character as well as by reason of his high professional attainments and he is today one of the valued citizens as well as one of the leading dentists of Evanston.
