Augustus Edmund Costello, M. D., C. M., a gifted young physician of
Spooner, Washburn county, was born in Albany, N. Y., son of P. P. and
Melvinie (Porcheron) Costello, the former at one time a prominent
business man of Albany.
When he was a child Dr. Costello's parents moved to Montreal, Canada,
where he received his early education in the public schools, after
which he completed the classical course at St. Mary's College. He
then matriculated at McGill Medical College, from which he graduated in
1900, receiving his degrees. After a few months' much needed
rest, he came to Spooner in March 1901, where he was associated with
Dr. J. P. Cox for two years and he has already won an enviable
reputation throughout Washburn and adjacent counties. He is a
close student of medical literature, keeping in touch with the best
professional thought of the day. He is a member of the M. W. A.
and of the K. O. T. M., of which he is a local examining surgeon.
He is also medical examiner for the Mutual Life Insurance company, of
New York, the National Fraternal League, Prudential Insurance Company,
L. O. T. M., and R. N. A. He is also a member of the pension
examining board at Shell lake.
On June 2, 1902, Dr. Costello was married to Miss Maud E. Park, of Spooner Wisconsin.
