|Watson (Frederick) Emory Webster|
My great-grandfather, Watson (Frederick) Emory Webster, was a dentist. He received his D.D.S. Degree from Western Dental College of Kansas City, Missouri on April 2, 1896.
At some point in Watson's life he changed his name to Frederick. Frederick lived a very interesting life. He practiced dentistry in many different locations and in three different countries - the U.S.A., Mexico, and Brazil.
Did you know there were such things as Dental Boats? How about Photo Boats? I didn't until I saw photos of the Webster Dental Boat and the Webster Photo Boat. Yep, great-grandpa Frederick practiced dentistry on a boat at some time during his life. And he also was a photographer too. I wonder what it was like to practice dentistry on a boat. Was the water always calm or were there any waves to contend with while Dr. Webster was working on patients. Yikes, right?
Oh, and, did I mention that great-grandpa Frederick was an inventor? Yep, he was!
Below you can read about his life and travels. I affectionately refer to my great-grandfather, Watson (Frederick) Emory Webster as "The Traveling Dentist."
Be sure to check back again as I add more about Frederick's life and travels.
