Himel, Clifford, M. D., practicing physician, St. James, La., was born in St.
James parish, Dec. 24, 1875; son of Ovide and Eugenie (Bourdreaux) Himel, both
natives of Lafourche parish, La.  The father was a sugar planter throughout
his active career.  He is now deceased but is survived by his wife.  Mr.
Himel's plantation was partly in Lafourche and partly in Assumption parish. 
He was twice married.  Seven children were born to the first union and 4 to
the second, these being, in order of their birth, as follow:  Oscar, now a
resident of Assumption parish;  Nelson, planter, at Convent;  Numa, practicing
physician at Welcome;  Hector, inspector for the St. James Levee Board; 
Ernst, planter, at Welcome;  Mary, widow of Arthur Blanchard, engineer, of New
Orleans;  Josephine, at Welcome;  Lynn, dentist, at Napoleonville;  Henry,
attorney, Convent;  Clifford, the subject of this sketch;  Edward, bookkeeper,
at Abbeville.  In the course of his education Clifford Himel attended the
University school, Knoxville, Tenn., and later Tulane university.  When his
academic education had been completed he entered the medical department of the
University of the South, Sewanee, Tenn., from which he graduated with the
degree of M. D. in the class of 1900.  Shortly following the completion of his
professional education he located at St. James and there began the practice of
medicine, but after about 6 months moved his offices to Labadieville, where he
remained in practice about 9 years.  In January, 1910, however, he returned to
St. James and has since been engaged in practice there.  The doctor is
physician to the St. James Lumber Co., and is a member of the St. James parish
Medical and the Louisiana State Medical society.  Nov. 12, 1902, Dr. Himel was
married to Miss Lucille Boirrier, a daughter of Octave and  Laura (Landry)
Boirrier, of St. James parish.  The mother was born in Ascension parish and
the father in St. James.  The latter follows the vocation of a sugar mill
engineer.  Both of Mrs. Himel's parents are living at this time.  No children
have been born to Dr. and Mrs. Himel.
