Dr. John Constantine Bialas, who opened an office for the general practice of medicine and surgery in Utica in 1916, has since followed his profession in this city with steadily growing and well-merited success. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on the 16th of June, 1893, his parents being Walenty and Mary Bialas, both natives of Poland. They emigrated to the United States in the year 1884, settling in Boston, Massachusetts, where they continued to reside until 1907, when they established their home in Utica, New York.

John Constantine Bialas obtained his early education in his native city, while subsequently he pursued a special course covering four years in St. Jerome's College of Kitchener, Ontario, which institution he attended from 1908 until 1912. The succeeding four years were given to preparation for a professional career as a student in the Boston University School of Medicine, from which he was graduated with the degree of M. D. in 1916. Prior to that time, in the summer of 1915, he had become an interne in Faxton Hospital of Utica and thus served until 1917. It was in 1916, while still an interne, that he opened an office in Utica, where in the same year he began the practice of his chosen profession and has since been accorded a gratifying patronage. In a calling where advancement depends entirely upon individual merit and ability he is making steady progress, owing to his comprehensive study, his thoroughness and his commendable ambition to make his service of the greatest value to his fellowmen. He is connected with the homeopathic hospital and keeps in close touch with the most advanced methods and discoveries of the profession through his membership in the Oneida County Medical Society and the New York State Medical Society.

On the 12th of May, 1924, Dr. Bialas was united in marriage to Miss Sadie Kantor, daughter of Michael and Caroline Kantor of New York Mills. Fraternally the Doctor is identified with the Knights of Columbus and the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and he enjoys an enviable reputation as a skilled physician and surgeon and popular young citizen of Utica.
