      Dr. Ernest Ellsworth Laubaugh, medical adviser to the department of public welfare of the state of Idaho and recognized as an able and eminent physician, was born in Shickshinny, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, August 20, 1887. His father, Elmer E. Laubaugh, is a contractor of Philadelphia, where he is still active in business. The mother, who bore the maiden name of Sarah J. Sprake, is also living. She is a native of England, while the father was born in Pennsylvania.

      Dr. Laubaugh of this review was reared in Philadelphia and was graduated from the Medico-Chirurgical College of that city, now the Post Graduate School of the University of Pennsylvania, completing his course in 1909, at which time the M. D. degree was conferred upon him. For eight months he served as interne at Mercy Hospital at Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and then spent eighteen months as interne in the Philadelphia General Hospital, gaining broad and valuable knowledge and experience, which is never as quickly secured in any other way as in hospital practice. He was assistant pathologist for serological work in the Philadelphia General Hospital in 1912-13 and assistant demonstrator in physical diagnosis at the Medico-Chirurgical College during 1911 and 1912. He was also assistant instructor in neurology at that college in 1912-13 and then, seeking the opportunities of the north-west, came to Boise on the 1st of June of the latter year. From that date until April 13, 1917, he was bacteriologist of the state of Idaho and resigned his position to enter the World war as a volunteer. He was called to the colors in September, 1917, and entered the United States Medical Corps at Fort Benjamin Harrison at Indianapolis, Indiana. On the 15th of November, 1917, he was transferred to Newport News. Virginia, and there remained for twenty months, being discharged on the 23d of April, 1919, with the rank of captain, having entered the service as a lieutenant. When the country no longer needed his aid Dr. Laubaugh returned to Boise and on the 1st of May, 1919, took up his duties as medical adviser of the department of public welfare and chief of the bureau.

      On the 5th of February, 1914, Dr. Laubaugh was married to Elizabeth C. Tallman, of Boise, and they have two children: James Elmer, born November 11, 1914; and Lucile, born February 29, 1920. Dr. Laubaugh is a member of the American Legion and he is a member of the Idaho State Medical Society, of which he is now serving as secretary. He is also connected with the Medical Reserve Corps of the United States army with the rank of captain and is in the United States Public Health Service Reserve with the rank of past assistant surgeon. Throughout his professional career he has largely been identified with scientific research and investigation, and his labors have been far-reaching, resultant and beneficial.
