He received his degree from the Ohio Medical University, where he was graduated in the class of 1898, and immediately located for practice at Salineville, where he continued for seven years. In July, 1905, Dr. Lindsay came to Amsterdam and has built up a large and substantial practice here, and , owning his own drug store, has the advantage of knowing just precisely hoe his prescriptions are filled.
