MORRIS C. TUHOLSKE, M.D. Since getting successfully established in his
profession at Akron, Doctor Tuholske has accepted a number of those
opportunities open to the able physician for social welfare work, and has
served the community with a degree of skill and courage that has made him
an invaluable citizen.
He was born in Troy, New York, June 12, 1879, but in the same year his
parents, David and Hulda (Himmelweit) Tuholske, moved to Akron. His father
is now living retired in Brooklyn, New York, but the mother died in July,
1921. Both parents were born in Germany, the father in 1846, came to the
United States when young people, and David became a cigar manufacturer in
Troy and afterward in Akron. He is a democrat and a member of the Reformed
Jewish faith.
Morris C. Tuholske grew up in Akron, attending public schools there, and
took his pre-medical course in Buchtel College. He was graduated Doctor of
Medicine in 1903 from Washington University of St. Louis, and remained in
that city ten years, serving his internship in the City Hospital and the
St. Louis Female Hospital, and while engaged in private practice was also
connected with the St. Louis City Dispensary and the Tuberculosis Clinic.
Moving to Akron in 1913, Doctor Tuholske has since attended a general
practice, but largely his work is gynecology and diseases of the chest. For
three years he acted as medical inspector of the public schools of Akron,
and in that capacity instituted the Open Air schools. He is secretary of
the Summit County, Ohio State and American Medical associations.
Doctor Tuholske is affiliated with Akron Lodge, No. 363, Benevolent and
Protective Order of Elks; Henry Perkins Lodge, No. 611, Free and Accepted
Masons; Washington Chapter, No. 25, Royal Arch Masons; Akron Council, No.
80, Royal and Select Masters, and the Rosemont Country Club, golf being his
favorite recreation. He is past president and has been representative to
the Grand Lodge from Akron Lodge, No. 719, of the Independent Order B'nai
B'rith. He is also active in the Akron Hebrew Congregation, Temple Israel,
and all Jewish welfare work. He is a member of the Chamber of Commerce.
Doctor Tuholske married at Wheeling, West Virginia, Hulda Schwalb, who was
born and reared at Wheeling, daughter of Louis and Mary Schwalb, the latter
now deceased. The father, who is living retired at Akron, was for many
years in the wholesale liquor business at Wheeling. Mrs. Tuholske is
prominent in both social and musical circles at Akron. They have one son,
Robert Julius Tuholske.
