Dr. E. R. Linton
E. R. LINTON was born in Toledo. Iowa, September 22, 1871. He received a
public school education and when sixteen years old left for Colorado. He has been
dependent upon his own resources ever since his early boyhood.
He studied dentistry in
the University of Denver, and practiced his profession six years in that city. He left
Denver in 1900 for Nome, and established a dental office in the northern mining camp. He
went out in the fall of that year and did not return until 1902. During the interim he
was in Oregon. Upon his return he fitted up the finest dental offices in Nome. Like
most of the business and professional men of Nome he has dabbled in mines, but a large
clientele keeps him busy in his profession.
