D R. A. C. WALKER, for nineteen years
a practicing physician of Rockdale,
Milam county, being in point of reEidence
the oldest practitioner of this place, was
born in the town of Nacogdoches, Texas, August
3, 1851, and is a son of Judge Richard
S. Walker, deceased, at one time one of Texas'
nmost eminent jurists and highly respected
citizens, a full biography of whom appears
under an appropriate title in this work.
The subject of this notice was reared in
his native place, and in the schools of that
place received his early education. He finished
his collegiate training with a course in
the University of Virginia; read medicine
and was graduated at Bellevue Hospital
Medical College, of New York, in March,
1873. After a year's practice at Nacogdoches
he located, in February, 1874, at Rockdale,
where he entered vigorously on the pursuit
of his profession, which he has followed
actively and earnestly at this place since.
Dr. Walker, although yet a young man, is
the pioneer physician of Rockdale, and has
attained a position as physician and surgeon
not reached by many men of his age. His
chosen profession has been the ambition of
his life, and success has attended him at
every step therein. He is not a specialist in
any branch, but has demonstrated his ability
in all the branches of medicine.' He has
been particularly successful in surgery, and
is probably best known in connection with
his work in this department. He is the local
surgeon of the International & Great Northern
and the San Antonio & Aransas Pass
Railway Companies, and is frequently called
to do fine surgical work in counties adjoining
his own. Hie is a member of the Milam
County Medical Society and of the Texas
State Medical Association, and is a frequent
contributor to the literature of the profession.
Dr. Walker is in the prime of life, in good
health, vigorous in action, and has many
years of usefulness before him. His temperament
is of the vital-sanguine order; his
nature is buoyant and joyful. Life is indeed
to him a boon, for he appreciates all of its
privileges and its pleasures. He is full of
