With the wonderful advances that have been made in the healing art in recent
years, radiology has become a most important adjunct to medicine and surgery
and in the hands of a skillful operator is of great curative value. In this
field of operation Dr. F. H. Kuegle, of Sioux City, has gained a wide and
favorable reputation and is conceded to be the leading radiologist in this
section of the country. Born in Columbiana county, Ohio, on the 22d of January,
1878, Dr. Kuegle is a son of Henry and Melinda (Summers) Kuegle, who were
natives of the same locality, where their respective families were among the
first settlers. His paternal grandfather Frederick Kuegle, was a native of
Germany, while his maternal great-grandfather, John Summers, went to Ohio from
Bucks county, Pennsylvania. Henry Kuegle was a stonemason by trade but in later years engaged in the hardware business at Leetonia, Ohio.

In the public schools there Dr. Kuegle secured his elementary education, and then entered Nebraska State University, from which he was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1899. He then matriculated in the John A. Creighton Medical College, at Omaha, Nebraska, and was graduated with the degree of Doctor of Medicine in 1905. He served an interneship of more than a year in Mercy Hospital, at Council Bluffs, Iowa, after which he engaged in the general practice of medicine at Madison, Nebraska. One year later he was appointed assistant superintendent of the Nebraska State Hospital, at Ingleside, in which capacity he served two years. In 1909 he engaged in the general practice at West Point and Dodge, Nebraska, and in 1910 was appointed assistant superintendent of the Colorado State Hospital at Pueblo. During the years 1911 and 1912 he again served as assistant superintendent of the Nebraska State Hospital, and in 1913 was in general practice at Cairo, Nebraska. From 1914 to 1918 he served as radiologist at the Nicholas Senn Hospital, at Omaha, Nebraska, and from August, 1918, to October, 1919, was a captain in the United
States Medical Corps, being stationed at the Letteman General Hospital at the Presidio, San Francisco. On December 2, 1919, Doctor Kuegle came to Sioux City and has since devoted himself exclusively to radiology, in which science he has specialized since 1914.

In 1912, in Omaha, Nebraska, Doctor Kuegle was united in marriage to Miss
Theresa Russell, who is a native of Pennsylvania. He is a member of Landmark
Lodge, No. 103, A. F. & A. M.; Hastings Chapter, No. 21, R. A. M., of Hastings, Nebraska; and Mt. Nebo Commandery, No.11, K. T., also of Hastings. The Doctor is a man of strong and forceful personality, is devoted to his profession, and has made steady advancement, being accorded a position of leadership.
