J. C. M. DRAKE, M. D., 201 West 8th St., Erie, was born in Panama, Chautauqua Co., N. Y., and reared in Westfield, same county. His father was Col. J. C. Drake of the 112th N. Y. S. V., and he is a lineal descendant of an ancient family of that name. After receiving a good literary education at Greylock Institute, Mass., he entered Cornell University, taking a thorough literary and scientific course when twenty years of age; after two years he entered Hahnemann Medical College, Chicago, graduating in 1880, when twenty-five years of age. After practicing a year at Westfield, in connection with Dr. Geo. W. Seymour, he came here and has since been identified with the practice in this city. He has worked actively for the development of the social life of Erie City.
