Fiftieth Anniversary For P. W. Hanicke Firm

Fig. 1

Fifty years ago P.W. Hanicke came to Kansas City by special invitation from a patient who was being treated in Philadelphia by Dr. Frank D. Dickson. Dr. Dickson also settled in Kansas City. Mr. Hanicke was a pioneer in custom-built orthopedic appliances, whose trademark of quality and efficiency still prevails.

In 1921 Mr. Hanicke brought his nephew, Erich Hanicke, to Kansas City. Erich Hanicke had served his apprenticeship in Dresden, Germany, where P.W. Hanicke also had been trained. Werner Hanicke joined the firm in 1924. Erich's wife, Betty, is also an important member of the firm and is one of seven women Certified Orthotists in the United States. Both Erich and Betty Hanicke have contributed outstanding service to the Association, as well as to their patients and associates in the medical profession.
