Amos Bauman, son of Moses Bauman, was born in 1857 in Bloomingdale. At first he became a teacher but soon realized that this was not what he wanted to do for his life’s work. Instead he decided to become a doctor and, to further this end, he attended the Medical School at the University of Toronto. After graduation in 1885 he began a practice in Waterloo. He first had an office at 59 Albert St. in the Snyder home but later moved to 55 King St. N. This large white brick home and office was immediately south of St. John’s Lutheran Church. Besides his practice and work in the new Berlin-Waterloo Hospital when it was opened in 1895, he was appointed Medical Director of Dominion Life Assurance Company. As well, in 1908 he became the Medical Officer of Health for the town of Waterloo. After his death in 1918 from a heart attack, his home and practice was sold to Dr. Livingstone from Baden. Also, a large tract of land from this property was sold for the construction of an automobile garage on the corner of King St. N. and Princess St.
