Dr. Walter G. Hope - At this point we are permitted to touch upon the life of one of Albuquerque's leading young physicians, whose identity with the medical profession of this place dates from the spring of 1891. In the person of Dr. Walter G. Hope, we find a native of the Keystone State, born at Enon, Lawrence county, April 28, 1860.
Dr. Hope descends from English and Scotch ancestors. His people, however, have long been residents of America, three generations of the family having been born near Philadelphia. Among them have been found farmers, mechanics and professional men, all noted for their honesty and industry and occupying honorable and useful positions in life. The Doctor's father, Hugh Hope, was born in Pennsylvania on the farm on which the progenitor of the family in America had settled many years before. He was a farmer, a member of the United Presbyterian Church, and a man of sterling worth. He married Sarah McGehon, a native of his own county, and they became the parents of eight children, seven of whom are living. Both father and mother are deceased, he being sixty-eight at the time of death, and she seventy-six. The mother, too, was a devoted Christian and a member of the same church to which her husband belonged, and they reared their children in the fear of the Lord.
Walter G., the youngest of his father's family, was educated at Westminster College, Pennsylvania, where he completed a classical course and graduated in 1884, After this he gave his whole attention to the study of medicine, entered Jefferson Medical College at Philadelphia, and in 1886 received his diploma from that institution. That same year he began the practice of his profession at Lenexa, Kansas, and remained at that place until the spring of 1891, when, as already stated, he took up his residence at Albuquerque. Here he has continued the practice of medicine with very gratifying success. And he has not only won the confidence of his patrons and those with whom he daily mingles but he has also gained honorable recognition from the medical profession. He is Secretary of the Bernalillo Medical Society and is a member of the Territorial Medical Society. He is also identified with the Odd Fellows and the Knights of Pythias. In politics he is a Republican, and in every way is regarded as a worthy and upright citizen.
The Doctor was married June 8, 1892, to Miss Kittie May Bower, of Lenexa, Kansas, daughter of Dr. G. M. Bower, of that place, and at that time a member of the Kansas State Senate. The Doctor and Mrs. Hope have a little daughter, Helen, born in Albuquerque.
Dr. Hope has invested in property in this city and feels that he is permanently located here. He built a substantial brick block, the upper story of which he uses for his office and residence, the lower floor being occupied by the G. F. Albright Publishing Company.
