E. O. M. HABERACKER, M.D., one of Altoona's experienced medical men, who has been engaged in the practice of his profession in this city for almost a quarter of a century, was born in Lehigh County, Pa. in 1846, a member of oneof the old and substantial families of that section.


Dr. Haberacker was educated in the Allentown Seminary, Muhlenberg College and the State Normal School, and in 1869 was graduated from the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania. He began practice at Tyrone, in Blair County, and remained there until 1886, when he came to Altoona. He is identified with the leading medical organizations in the county, state and nation, and has always been a man of scientific investigation. He enjoys a very large general practice, avoiding specializing, and for five years has served as surgeon for the Pennsylvania National Guards.


On August 20, 1870, Dr. Haberacker was married to Miss Jennie S. Keith of Sinking Valley, and one daughter was born to them, Irma L. She grew to attractive womanhood and married Harry Rippman, of Millerstown, Pa. Her death occurred when she was but twenty-two years of age. A son survived her, Charles Eugene Rippman, who is a student at Yeates School, at Lancaster, Pa.


Dr. Haberacker and wife are members of the Simpson Methodist Episcopal church. He is identified with Tyrone Lodge No: 494. F.& A.M. All his life he has been a conscientious citizen, but has never had the time or taste for politics.
