With thorough college training and hospital experience to fit him for active practice, Joseph D. Sullivan came to Kenosha in June, 1914, and has since been an active representative of the medical profession. He was born in this city January 8, 1879, and is a son of Thomas A. Sulivan, who is mentioned on another page of this work. Spending his youthful days under the parental roof, he mastered the branches of learning taught in the graded and high schools of the city and afterward entered the Milwaukee University, from which he was graduated with the class of 1912. Still later he became a student in the medical department of Marquette University and was there graduated with the class of 1914. During the last year of his college days he did much work in various hospitals of Milwaukee and thereby added to his theoretical knowledge broad practical experience. Following his graduation he returned to Kenosha, where he opened an office and in the intervening period he has built up a good practice.
Dr. Sullivan is a communicant of St. James Catholic church and he holds membership with the Knights of Columbus, the Eagles, the Elks and the Royal League. In politics he maintains an independent course, for while interested in the questions and issues of the day, he does not believe it wise to bind himself by party ties. The major part of his attention is given to his professional duties, and in order to keep in touch with the advanced lines of modern scientific thought and research, he holds membership in the Kenosha County, Wisconsin State and American Medical Associations.
