J.H. Greer was a professor of Genito-Urinary Diseases at the College of Medicine and Surgery in Chicago (now part of Loyola University). The college participated in community initiatives — including a free clinic — and, in 1903, became a major benefactor of the Frances E. Willard National Temperance Hospital. We could not locate any more information about Greer and his work at the college in the sources available to us.
