CALVIN L. JOHNSTONBAUGH, M.D., who enjoys the distinction of being the oldest practicing physician in West Bethlehem, makes a specialty of treating the eye and ear.  Our subject is a native of this state having been born near Oak Hall, Centre County, June 8, 1864, and is the son of George Johnstonbaugh, also a native of Pennsylvania and a farmer by occupation.  He was a devoted member of the Lutheran Church, in the faith of which he died in 1890, when in the eighty-second year of his age.  His wife, prior to her marriage, Sarah Emrick, departed this life in 1884, at the age of sixty-three years.

The parental family of our subject included twelve children, of whom he was the youngest.  Two of his brothers participated in the late war as soldiers in the Union army, and another of his brothers, G.W., is principal teacher of the Bethlehem High School.  C.L. remained on his father's farm until a lad of eleven years, when his parents removed to State College, and there he entered the preparatory department of the college.  The three years following he attended the Centre Hall Normal, after which he took a two-years course in the Pennsylvania State College, making a specialty of the study of chemistry.

In 1884, Mr. Johnstonbaugh entered the Eclectic Medical Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio, from which institution he was graduated in 1887, with the degree of Doctor of Medicine.  Returning to this state, he located in Hublersburg, Centre County, where he practiced for thirteen months, and in April, 1889, took up his place of abode in West Bethlehem, having a well equiped office, situated

at No. 134 Third Avenue.  The Doctor, although engaged in general practice, is making a specialty of diseases of the eye and ear and has the finest assortment of lenses ever manufactured.

Dr. Johnstonbaugh was married in February, 1889, in Centre County, to Miss Sue E., daughter of Rev. W.R. Yearick, a minister of the Reformed Church.  Their union has been blessed by the birth of a daughter, Nettie O.  Our subject has served as a member of the Board of Health for one term, and in every way possible lends his aid toward the upbuilding of his community.  He is the only Eclectic physician in the Lehigh Valley and enjoys a large and lucrative patronage.  The Doctor is a Republican in politics and in religious affairs belongs to Christ Reformed Church, in which he is a Deacon.
