 DR. R A. KOOKEN  --1897
[Dr. Robert Andrew Kooken, I, MD]

Dr. Kooken came to Hamilton in 1891, according to the old paper. He was a graduate of Trinity University, the medical university at Louisville, KY., and in 1892 took special work in the New York Polyclinic school where he graduated with honor. In 1896 he returned to New York and took more special work. Quoting from the 1897 paper:

"He is at present a member of the Board of Medical Examiners for this district. Dr. Kooken’s professional career has been one of unwavering success. He is a man of robust physical makeup, capable of doing a vast amount of work. He acts promptly in emergencies and with full confidence in his ability to meet the demands of the occasion. His liberality to those in indigent circumstances is will known and his free practice among the poor has made him deservedly popular."

Still living in Hamilton (1938) are his widow and his son, Dr. R. A. Kooken of the Cleveland-Kooken-West Clinic.
