Co., 1916 (aka Arizona, the Youngest State), volume 3 (Biographical), page 228: One of the most progressive and able young physicians and surgeons in Holbrook is Dr. J.W. Bazell, now serving as county physician of Navajo County. He was born in Ohio in 1881 and acquired his preliminary education in the public schools of that state, later entering the Northern Ohio University. He was afterward a student in the medical department of the University of Louisville and was graduated from that institution in 1909 with the degree of M.D. Previous to this time he had come to Arizona and engaged in the drug business for a short time and after his graduation he returned to the state, spending one year with the Shannon Copper Company at Clifton, acting as assistant surgeon. When he resigned he removed to Holbrook, settling in that city in 1911 and he has already secured a large and representative patronage which is steadily growing as his skill and ability become more widely known. He is serving as county physician of Navajo County and is proving farsighted, capable and conscientious in the discharge of his duties. Dr. Bazell married on the 28th of February 1912, Miss Maude Scott of Pinedale Arizona and both are well known in Holbrook.
