Among the men who have taken an active part in the affairs of Tippecanoe county and won a reputation for their interest in the welfare of the general public and a profession as well is Dr. A. W. Shoup, who is eminently deserving of the high esteem in which he is held.
Born in the adjoining county of White, in the city of Monticello, Doctor Shoup is the son of Daniel
and Caroline (Lamar) Shoup, a worthy old couple who moved to Tippecanoe county in 1863 and spent the remainder of their lives here, established a good home and won the confidence and respect of a wide circle of friends.
Of their family of eight children Dr. A. W., of this review, was the oldest. He spent his early youth on the farm assisting with the work on the same and attending the district schools during the winter months. He applied himself very carefully to his work and was enabled to take up teaching, which profession he followed with much success in the schools of his home county during the next twelve years, his services being in great demand, for he was not only well qualified for this line of work from a text-book standpoint but also had all the other necessary qualifications for the successful teacher.
All the while he was interested in scientific subjects, and his reading was wide in its scope. Feeling the need for a more thorough training in order to fit himself for the medical profession for which he had long had a predilection, he entered Purdue University at Lafayette, from which institution he was graduated in the summer of 1887, with the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. For some time following his graduate he was engaged in the drug business in Lafayette, studying medicine in the meantime.
Entering a medical college in Louisville, Kentucky, he finished the course in a very creditable manner in the spring of 1904. So well had he done his work in Purdue University that he was enabled to pass many of the examinations in the Louisville school without taking the subjects over again. Upon his graduation he located in the city of Terre Haute, where he built up a very
good patronage, but believing that a more desirable field awaited him at Battle Ground he established an office here, and his success was instantaneous. He now has an excellent practice throughout this part of the county.
Doctor Shoup was first married in November, 1895. to Eugenia Van Dyke, of Kentucky. On account of the failing health of Mrs. Shoup, the Doctor was compelled to relinquish his practice here and locate in the South, consequently they moved to North Carolina; however, the change in climate did not result in the benefit to the health of Mrs. Shoup anticipated and she was called to her rest in 1900. To this union one son was born, Van Dyke Shoup, in 1896. Soon after the death of his wife the Doctor returned to Battle Ground and again took up his practice here, where he has since remained. The Doctor was again married on April 12, 1909, his last wife being known in her maidenhood as Hester Fowler. Mrs. Shoup has lived in Tippecanoe county all her life and has a large acquaintance.
Doctor Shoup is deeply enamored of his work and keeps abreast of the times in all scientific research bearing on the medical profession; he is a deep student not only in medical lines but in various lines of literature. He has long been active in the affairs of the Republican party.
