George B. Norberg was born at Galva, Illinois, July
11, 1872. Mr. Norberg's family left Illinois when he was
thirteen years old and located in Smith Center, Kas. He went to
the public schools of both Illinois and Kansas during his residence in
those States, and went to work in a drug store in Smith Centre while a
pupil in the High School of the town. He started to the Kansas
University in 1889, and left that institution with the title of Ph. G.
in 1893. He came to Kansas City immediately upon his graduation,
and returned to work in the drug business. While employed at
this business he took up the study of medicine at the University
Medical College. He graduated from the medical college March 20,
1897, and at once entered into practice as a physician.
He was appointed Assistant Police Surgeon for
a term of one year, and at its expiration was made House Surgeon at
the Missouri Pacific Hospital. He held the place two years, and
then returned to general practice.
