Dr. Frank W. Knowles (1858-1936) set up his medical practice in Los Gatos shortly after graduating from college in 1883.
He administered to patients in town and also to those living in the mountains as far as the summit.
His usual mode of transport was a narrow wheeled buggy pulled by a team of horses, but in bad weather he rode his saddle horse.
According to this receipt dated Aug. 31, 1900 he charged $16.50 for six visits between May 12 and June 9, and he was paid $10 on account leaving a balance of $6.50.
