Pueblo County, Colorado
DR. ROBERT J. CHRISTIE
Contributed by Karen Mitchell.
This gentleman was raised in Frederick County, Va., where he was born June 13, 1831. He graduated in medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 1856, and afterward moved to Missouri, where he practiced medicine until the breaking-out of the late war. Being a Southern man, he very naturally espoused the cause of the South, and served through the war as a surgeon, holding the position of Senior Surgeon of Gen. M. M. Parsons' Confederate Infantry. After the close of the war, he returned to Missouri and renewed the practice of his profession, which he continued until coming to Colorado more than a year ago. He arrived at Pueblo January 1, 1880, and immediately entered the practice as a partner of Dr. Craven. He and Dr. Craven are now doing a large and lucrative practice in Pueblo County, having established a wide and enviable reputation, both as physicians and as surgeons. We desired to refer to Dr. Christie in this brief sketch, since he is prominently identified with the medical profession at Pueblo, and has become as thoroughly known as though "an old-timer."
