| Dr. W. A. W.
Kresensky is one of the well known and successful physicians
and surgeons of Greeley, Iowa, where he has engaged in the
practice of his profession for a number of years. He was born in
Algona, Kossuth county, Iowa, September 12, 1887, a son of Julius
and Helena Kresensky, both natives of Germany. They came to this
country when their son, the subject of this review, was but a
child and are still living in Kossuth county, this state. Of the
ten children born to their union eight survive.
Dr. Kresensky remained at home until he was of age and
received the advantages of a common-school education. He was
graduated from the local high school when eighteen years old and
then matriculated in the medical department of the State
University of Iowa, from which he was graduated when twenty-two
years old. He was subsequently for one year interne in the
University Hospital at Iowa City and in 1911 he came to Greeley,
where he began the private practice of medicine. In the three
years that have elapsed since his arrival here he has established
himself as a physician and surgeon of ability and has not only
won the confidence of his patients but the respect of his
colleagues. In addition to his representative and growing
practice he is a member of the United States pension examining
board. He realizes that to succeed in his profession one must
remain a continual student of the science of medicine and he
therefore keeps abreast of the latest discoveries in that field.
His present attainments and achievements are but the indication
of the greater success that his friends predict will be his as
the years pass.
Dr. Kresensky was married in 1911 to Miss Pressie
Mather, of Iowa City, and to them has been born a daughter,
Florence H., whose natal day was March 4, 1912. The Doctor is a
democrat in his political belief and is taking an active part in
public affairs. He is committeeman from his district and is also
one of the town councilman. Fraternally he belongs to Lodge No.
225, A. F. & A. M., and conforms his life to the teachings of the
