Edward F. Benhart

EDWARD F. BENHART, the son of Mr. and Mrs. F. T. Benhart, of this city, was born October 19th, 1896. His entire life with the exception of the past few years, has been spent in this city, where he attended the public schools, and from which he graduated with the class of 1913. During the last year, while attending school, he assisted with the work in the drug store of E. A. Grimwood, and it was here that he was imbued with the desire to take a medical course at the University. The next fall he went to Iowa City, and entered the State University as a medical student. He has remained in the college since that time with the exception of the summer vacations, which were spent at home. His age permitted of his registering for military service June 5th, 1917, but when his
questionnaire was passed upon, he was placed in Class 5, C, owing to the fact that he was a medical student. The opportunity to again offer his services to his country was presented when the Government opened enlistments for the young men to take their military training and at the same time attend the University. He enlisted at Iowa City August 12th of this year, as a member of the M. E. R. C., subject to the call of the Government at any time. If mustered out of the service he will remain at the University city to complete his course of studies.
