At the Keokuk Medical College, Maxwell was a professor of anatomy and surgery and was one of the first specialists in proctology. He had come to Keokuk as a medical student after his undergraduate days at the University of Illinois, where he had played on the football and baseball teams. Maxwell died very young, from kidney failure, but he had won several golf titles by that time. Among them were the 1900 Iowa State Amateur and the 1903 Trans-Mississippi Amateur
