C. M. NOBLE, M. D., McLean. It is very seldom that a young physician meets with such success in the first few years of his practice as has Dr. C. M. Noble, of McLean. He is a native of Randolph Township, McLean Co.; born Dec. 16, 1850; after receiving a thorough literary education at the Normal College, in the fall of 1873 he began the study of medicine, graduating at the Jefferson Medical College, of Philadelphia, Penn., March 11, 1876; after graduating, he returned to his home, his people being residents of his native township; they were among the prominent pioneers of that part of the county, the family being of English origin. The Doctor had remained at home but a short time until he concluded to locate at McLean; when he came there, he was wholly unacquainted, though in a short time he had established himself both in society and in a professional sense. He is a member of the McLean County Medical Society, and of the Central Illinois Medical Society, of which he held the office of Vice President during the year 1878. By his close attention to business, his thorough knowledge of the science of medicine, he has established a practice that is probably not equaled by one-half of the old physicians of the county.
