from Past and Present of Mahaska County, Iowa by Manoah Hedge The S. J. Clarke Publishing Co. 1906
Dr. H. E. Carver, who is engaged in the practice of medicine at Rose Hill, where he has been located for four years, was born near Oskaloosa, October 14, 1875. His father, Jerrel Carver, was one of the early settlers of Mahaska county and was married here to Miss Izora Freeman, a native of Ohio, who was reared and educated, however, in Mahaska county and for a number of years was a capable teacher in the schools of Oskaloosa. Jerrel Carver is still a resident of Oskaloosa and is respected as one of its worthy and valued citizens. Dr. Carver was reared in the city of his nativity and at the usual age began his education, passing through successive grades until he had completed a course in Oskaloosa high school. He afterward attended Penn College and won the degrees of Bachelor and Master of Science. He afterward attended the medical department of the State University at Iowa City and completed his course there by graduation with the class of 1899. While a senior he served for one year in the University Hospital and thus added to his theoretical knowledge broad and helpful practical training. After completing his course hee located in the city of Oskaloosa, where he began practice, remaining there for three years, and in 1901 he came to Rose Hill, where he opened an office and has since followed his profession. Here he has built up a good business and is accounted one of the able and successful physicians of the county. Everything which tends to bring to man the key to the complex mystery which we call life is of interest to him, and he is quick to adopt all new methods of improvement and progress in his profession. He is a Master Mason, belonging to Rose Hill lodge, and he belongs to the Knights of Pythias fraternity at Oskaloosa. A young man, he has attained success which many an older practitioner might well envy, and his fidelity to a high standard of professional ethics has won him the regard of his brethren of the medical fraternity.
