D., is established in the active general practice of his profession at Logan, judicial center of the West Virginia County of the same name, where for the past ten years he has had a heavy professional practice in connection with leading coal mining corporations in this section. He was also one of the founders of the admirably equipped Logan Hospital, which has proved of inestimable value in providing proper hospital facilities in connection with mining operations.   Doctor Steele was born on a farm east of Williamson, Mingo County, on Tug River,June 2, 1880, Mingo County at that time having been still a part of Logan County. He is a son of Harrison and Nancy (Hatfield) Steele, the father having been a successful farmer and also identified with the timber industry in this section of the state, and his father, John Steele, having been a loyal soldier of the Confederacy in the Civil war. Valentine Hatfield, maternal grandfather of Doctor Steele, likewise gave valiant service as a soldier in the war between the states. Doctor Steele has one brother and one sister: S. E. is a farmer on Tug River, and Eliza is the wife of Scott Browning, a merchant at Meador.   Doctor Steele is indebted to the public schools for his early education, and at the age of seventeen years he became a teacher in a rural district in Mingo County. He continued teaching four years, and in the meanwhile substantially advanced his own education through the medium of private study and attending select schools during the summer vacations. In 1900 he entered the medical department of the University of Nashville, Tennessee, and in this institution he was graduated in 1904, with the degree of Doctor of Medicine. For a year thereafter he served as an interne [sic] in the City Hospital of Nash, Kentucky, and thus fortified himself further by valuable clinical experience. He has since taken effective post-graduate courses in the Hospital College at Louisville, the celebrated New York Polyclinic, as well as in the New York Post-Graduate Medical College. He has availed himself also of the clinics of the great Mayo Brothers Hospital at Rochester, Minnesota, and those of leading hospitals in the City of Chicago.   In 1906 Doctor Steele established himself in practice at Holden, Logan County, as physician and surgeon for the United States Coal & Oil Company, now known as the Island Creek Coal Company. In the same year he established his residence and professional headquarters at Logan, the county seat, where he has since continued his able and loyal service as a skilled physician and surgeon. In 1915 he became associated with Doctor Farley in rebuilding and thoroughly modernizing the Logan Hospital, which they have since conducted with unqualified success. Doctor Steele is identified with the Logan County Medical Society, the West Virginia State Medical Society and the American Medical Association, and in the Masonic fraternity he has received the thirty-second degree of the Scottish Rite.   https://www.facebook.com/dee.browning.77?fref=ufi
