Dr. Mark E. Vance*

NARRATIVE:
Dr. Vance's "electric" auto was a familiar sight rolling quietly along Lincoln streets while the doctor waved to many friends. He was several times a subject of his friend Oz Black's cartoons of Lincolnites. In the early years of Dr. Vance's residence in Lincoln, he was a member of a "Booster Club" that traveled throughout Nebraska describing the many advantages of living in the capital city and urging people to move there. According to the Lincoln Evening State Journal (11/19/27), Dr. Vance was "largely instrumental in bringing about the change which made the Lincoln Dental College a part of the University of Nebraska.
