Dr. Quine was born in Chicago on February 9th, 1847, the son of William Quine and Margaret Kinley, who emigrated from Kirk Santan when the boy was only six years old. He became Professor Emeritus of the College of Medicine in the University of Illinois. He wrote many theses. In 1905 he privately printed a little work entitled 'The Doctor's Wife,' written as a tribute to his wife, who had been a missionary in China. This booklet is in our Library. He kept in touch with relatives in Man, and in 1905 stated that he was writing some biographical sketches of his early career, with a genealogical tree of his family, but they do not appear to have been finished. He died in 1923, A brief sketch of his career, with portrait, is given in 'The Alumni Record of the Univ. of Illinois,' 1921.
