Dr. Irving Frank

Dr. Irving Frank

Dr. Irving Frank and his wife Roseanne Krcek- Frank settled in Sycamore many years ago. The couple, their two daughters, and both of their son-in-laws have medically ?oriented careers. Before coming to Sycamore in 1949, both Dr. and Mrs. Frank worked on an Indian reservation in Oklahoma. Dr. Frank was only one of two physicians serving some 60,000 Navajo Indians. Living in a small town like Sycamore, with a university close by, both of the Franks decided to take advantage of the opportunity and continue their education. Mrs. Frank was already an R.N. She enrolled at NIU in the early 50?s and earned a B.A. in Russian and an M.S. in guidance and counseling. She went on to teach as a professor in NIU?s School of Nursing.
