HISTORY OF HOMOEOPATHY 



ITS INSTITUTIONS IN AMERICA 



THE HO.MCEOPATHIC MEDICAL PROFESSION 



JA.MES H. McCLELLAXD, Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania, former professor of surgery 
in the Hahnemann Medical College of 
Philadelphia, president of the American In- 
stitute of Homoeopathy in 1894, a founder 
of the Pittsburgh Homoeopathic Hospital 
and member of its surgical staff since the 
organization of that now famous institu- 
tion, is a native of Pittsburgh, born May 
20, 1845, and has made that great indus- 
trial metropolis the scene of his entire pro- 
fessional life. He was educated there in 
the public schools and later was a student 
in the Western University of Pennsylvania, 
which later conferred upon him the degree 
of D. Sc. In 1862 he became a student 
of medicine under Dr. Jabez P. Dake, and 
on the removal of Dr. Dake from the city 
he continued his preliminary studies with 
Dr. J. C. Burgher. In 1864 he matriculated 
at the old Homccopathic Medical College 
of Pennsylvania and attended upon one 
full course of lectures; and in session of 
1866-67 lie again took up college studies 
and graduated M. D. in 1867. Dr. McClel- 
land began practice in Pittsburgh in 1867, 
associated with Dr. Burgher, and so con- 
tinued three years, when he opened an 
oftice of his own and entered uiK)n the 
career which in subsequent years has gained 
for him the iiighest slandiug in the ranks 
of the profession and has extended his 
reputation throughout America and even 



across the Atlantic. As the senior Hel- 
muth was to surgery in New York so is 
the senior McClelland to that special 
branch of practice in Pennsylvania ; both 
men of achievement and both bold and 
skillful operators; and as the former stood 
in his lifetime in the clinical department of 
Flower Hospital in New York, so stands 
the latter to-day in the surgical clinics of 
the Pittsburgh Homoeopathic Hospital, 
which institution owes its existence largely 
to his eflforts and public-spiritedness. In 
1876, on the retirement of Professor Mor-

McClelland succeeded him and held that 
professorship until the end of the session 
of 1877-7S, when he resigned ; at the begin- 
ning of that session he delivered the intro- 
ductory address. Neither is Dr. McClel- 
land wholly unknown as contributor to 
the literature of liis iirofessioii. altlwugh 
his efforts in this respect have been gen 
crally limited to monograph articles and 
addresses published after delivery before 
the highest bodies of homoeopathy. " The

at the World's Homa^opatliic Convention 
at Philadelphia in June. 1876. His 
"Nephrectomy" was read before the Homtic- 
opathic Society of Pennsylvania in Sep- 
tember, 1880. His "Antiseptic Surgery" 
was printed in pamphlet and also in the 
transactions of the American Institute of 
Homoeopathy. His membership in that in- 
stitution dates from 1S67, and now he is 
a senior. He was president of that body 
in 1894 and for many years has been an 
influential figure in its councils. He aLso 
was president of the Hahncm;inn statue 
connnittcc and was largely instrumental in 
accomplishing the object of that organiza- 
tion; was honorary president of the Inter- 
national Homoeopathic Congress held in 
Paris, 1900, and was president in the same 
year of the Pennsylvania state board of 
health. He also holds «iembcrship in the 
Pennsylvania State and Allegheny County 
Homoeopathic Medical societies, and is 
honorar>' member of the British Homoe- 
pathic Medical Society, the Massachusetts 
State and the Philadelphia County Homoe- 
opathic Medical societies. Dr. McClelland 
married Rachel May Pears, daughter of the 
late John P. Pears of Pittsburgh, by whom 
he has had three daughters, the youngest 
having died in infancy. He is associated 
in practice with his two brothers, Drs. John 
B. and Robert VV. McClelland. 



GEORGE WATSON ROBERTS, Ph. 
B., New York City, is a native of Underbill 
Center, Chittenden county, Vermont, born 
December 9, 1866, son of Dr. George Wash- 
ington Roberts, one of the earliest homoeo- 
pathic physicians in Vermont, and his wife 
Esther A. Graves of Northampton. Massa- 
chusetts. On both sides he is of old New 
England stock, in the paternal line tracing 
back to pioneer settlement in the Green 
Mountain state, and in the maternal line 
to the early colonists of Northampton in 
the Connecticut valley in Massachusetts. 
His elementary education was acquired in 
the Underbill common schools, chiefly in 



"the little old red schoolhouse" until he 
was twelve years old, when he was given 
two years of irregular attendance at Un- 
derbill Academy, interspersed with work 
on a farm and in a steam saw mill. At 
the age of fourteen, after the death of his 
mother, he went west to the prairies of 
Minnesota, where he found employment as 
clerk in a store. At this time a few boys, 
of whose number he himself was one, who 
were ambitious to gain an education, or- 
ganized a night class under the instruction 
of a German college graduate; and while 
there he began the study of "Gray's Anat- 
omy," which turned his mind in the direc- 
tion of medical subjects. In 1883, at the 
age of sixteen years, he returned to Ver- 
mont and became a student in the medical 
department of the University of Vermont, 
Burlington, but at the end of a year he 
was made aware of the importance of 
thorough academic training as the founda- 
tion of an education in the profession of 
medicine. With this in view he returned 
to Underbill and divided his time between 
work in a store and saw mill (for he was 
obliged to cam the means wherewith to 
manitain as well as educate himself) and 
hours of study, and twice each week he 
drove to Jericho, several miles distant, to 
recite his lessons and receive instructions 
from Joseph Cilley, one of Vermont's 
famous old-time teachers, stern and thor- 
ough, yet not less proficient in the art of 
the schoolmaster; and his admonitions as 
well as his instructions seriously impressed 
the young man under his teaching and 
aided him materially in the development 
of that calm, determined and self-reliant 
side of his nature which so frequently 
has manifested itself in Dr. Roberts' later 
professional life. In the fall of 1884 ho 
entered the academic department of the 
University of Vermont, and graduated 
there in 1R87, Ph. B., honor man, having 
led his class, securing his election to 
•l". I'.. K. (Phi Beta Kappa). In the med- 
ical (!c|)artmcnt of his alma niatcr he then 
began the study of medicine, taking two

courses, one preliminary and one regular; 
and later matriculated at the New York 
Homoeopathic Medical College, where he 
came to the full degree in 1889; on two 
subsequent occasions he visited Europe for 
' post-graduate studies. Dr. Roberts began 
his professional career in the city of New 
York in the late winter of 1889, and also 
at the same time became connected with 
the teaching corps of his alma mater in 
the out-patient department; and w-ith a 
single interval he has since been a part of 
its faculty life, in the following capacities : 
attending surgeon to the out-patient de- 
partment, demonstrator of physiology, dem- 
onstrator of operative surgery, professor 
of surgery and professor of gynecology. 
During almost the same period he has been 
associated in faculty work in the New 
York Medical College and Hospital for 
Women ; first as assistant to the chair of 
surgery, then adjunct professor to the chair 
of surgery, and later professor of surgery. 
In the New York Homccopathic Sanitarium 
he was resident surgeon, 1890-1894. In the 
Laura Franklin Free Hospital for Children 
he has been attending surgeon since 1894. 
In Hahnemann Hospital he has been at- 
tending surgeon since 1896, but his part in 
the life of this particular institution has 
been more than that of attending to the 
formal duties of its surgical department; 
he has been the chief factor in organizing 
the hospital on its present basis and in 
bringing it to the standard of efficiency and 
perfection it enjoys among the charitable 
institutions of whatever school in the great 
metropolitan district. He is and for several 
years has been attending gynecologist to 
the Mower Hospital; consulting surgeon to 
Hrooklyn Memorial Hospital, to St. Mary's 
Hospital, Passaic, New Jersey, and to the 
Scranton Ilomtcopathic llosp'ilal, Scranton, 
Pcnn.sylvania. He is a member of the Amer- 
ican Institute of llonui-'opatliy, the New 
York State and New York County Homtt- 
opathu- Medical societies, tlie I'atliological 
and Materia Medica societies; tlie Meissen 
.iiiil Cliiiini iliibs ; an lioimiaiN' miimiiIkt of 



the Ohio Valley Medical Association, and 
corresponding member of the British 
Homccopathic Medical Society. Dr. Rob- 
erts is known by his works rather than 
by his writings on subjects pertaining to 
his profession, yet to him is attributed the 
authorship of several valuable monograph 
contributions to surgical literature which 
have been given currency through the 
medium of medical and surgical journals; 
and, besides these, he is the author of an 
original operation for cancer of the rectum 
which will live after he has passed from 
life's stage. Among his published works, 
chiefly in pamphlet, are "The Operative 
Treatment of Cancer of the Rectum," 1902 ; 
"Should Catharsis Precede Laparotomy?" 
'"Conservative Pelvic Surgerj'," and "Can- 
cer of the Rectum Treated by Sigmoido- 
Protectomy," 1905.

the regular college curriculum and Dr. 
Betts relinquished his former course of 
lectures to assume the duties of professor 
of g>Tiecolog>-. The establishment of a 
gynecological clinic was attended with 
many difficulties owing to the inadequate 
facilities in the old college and hospital 
buildings. The teaching in this depart- 
ment was practical and afforded the stu- 
dents the first opportunity that had ever 
acquired to institute methods of physical 
examination under the direct supervision 
of the teacher. Particular pains were taken 
to teach the application of homoeopathic 
therapeutics to the diseases peculiar to 
women, and each year the clinics increased 
in importance. After the establishment of 
iliis course of medical study a supplemental 
course was instituted on the diseases of 
children. The same care was taken to 
teach the application of homoeopathic meth- 
ods in this course and it became very pop- 
ular with the students in attendance. The 
establishment of a regular clinic for the 
treatment of diseases of children was fre- 
quently advocated. Dr. Betts relinquished 
the chair of gynecology in the year i<Sq5. 
and was appointed consulting gynecologist 
to the Hahnemann Hospital, consulting 
g>-necologist in charge of this department 
in the hospitals of the Women's Homne-

been published in the transactions of these 
societies as well as in medical journals. He 
also is a member of the American Social 
Science Association, the American .Acad- 
emy of Political and Social Science and 
other kindred organizations. His practice 
is confined mainly to gynecology anfl ab-

JAMES HERBERT MOORE, practicing 
physician of Brookline, Massachusetts, was 
born in Saco, York county, Maine, Octo- 
ber 4. 1861, and is the son of Dr. James 
Otis and Mary Elizabeth (Ross) Moore. 
The pioneer ancestor of this branch of the 
Moore family in this country, and the fifth 
generation removed from the subject of 
this sketch, was Col. Jonathan Moore, a 
retired British officer, who came to this 
country in the early part of 1700 and set- 
tled in Stratham, New Hampshire. Capt. 
Harvey Moore, the grandson of Col. Jona- 
than Moore and the great-grandfather of 
James Herbert Moore, entered the conti- 
nental army in command of a company of 
New Hampshire militia immediately after 
the Concord fight, receiving the commis- 
sion of captain from the governor of New 
Hampshire and subsequently tiic commis- 
sion of lieutenant from President Hancock. 
Capt. Harvey Moore carried in the revo- 
lutionary war the identical sword against 
the British which his grandfather. Col. 
Jonathan Moore, had carried in their de- 
fense nearly a century before. Dr. James 
Herbert Moore is also a son of the revolu-

tion on the other side of his father's fam- 
ily, his paternal grandmother having been 
the daughter of Rev. Levi Qiadboume, who 
served in the war of the revolution and 
carried in his body until his death, many 
years afterwards, a ball received in one of 
its battles. Dr. Moore is also allied with 
the revolution on his mother's side, his 
maternal grandmother having been a Jones, 
and direct descendant from that branch of 
the family w^hich gave to that period John 
Paul Jones. If homoeopathy is hereditary 
Dr. Moore comes naturally by his homoe- 
opathic faith and affiliations as his father. 
Dr. James Otis Moore, who was one of 
three brothers to embrace homoeopathy in 
the forties, after graduating from the old 
Castleton Medical College of Vermont in 

1848, became convinced of the superiority 
of the homoeopathic over the prevailing 
method of therapeutics, after a thorough 
examination and study of the same under 
the direction of his brother, Dr. Levi C. 
Moore, who had settled in North Troy, 
Vermont, as a homoeopathic physician as 
early as 1841. The third brother to em- 
brace homoeopathy at this early period was 
Dr. John Moore, who settled in Quincy, 
Illinois. After becoming convinced of the 
superiority of homoeopathy Dr. Moore's 
father removed to Saco, Maine, in April, 

1849, and was one of the first homoeopathic 
physicians to settle in that section of the 
state, and one of the few homoeopathic 
physicians to receive a medical commi'^sion 
in the civil war, in which he served as 
surgeon. At the close of the civil war Dr. 
Moore's father removed to Haverhill, 
Massachusetts, where he practiced his pro- 
fession for twenty years as the oldest 
honicEopathic physician of the city until his 
death in i^^- ^^- Moore received his edu- 
cation in the public schools of llavorliill, 
graduating from the high school in 1880, 
after having taken the college course in 
preparation for Harvard Qjllegc. Owing 
to a long continued illness of his father, 
due to a severe accident received in the 
rounds of his professional duties, Dr. 



Moore was obliged to abandon his inten- 
tion of taking a Harvard degree, and after 
spending one year in his father's office in 
the old, but unfortunately now nearly ex- 
tinct, relationship of preceptor and student, 
he entered the New York Homoeopathic 
Medical College in 1881, graduating with 
the degree of M. D. in the class of 1884. 
He at once entered into the practice of 
medicine in Haverhill, Massachusetts, in 
association with his father, and in Januarj', 
1886, established himself in practice in 
Brookline, Massachusetts, where he is still 
actively engaged in the general practice of 
his profession. He is a firm believer in 
the homoeopathic method of therapeutics and 
always has been especially interested, and 
of late years earnestly and actively engaged, 
in emphasizing that it is the essential tenets 
making up a scientific and practical hom<e- 
opathy which must be promulgated by the 
homoeopathic school of medicine, in order 
that it may make the most of its curative 
therapeutic specialty and take its place in 
the world of medicine unanimously ac- 
knowledged by profession and laity as the 
most effective therapeutic method of cura- 
tively antagonizing disease. To this end he 
has presented to the national and state 
societies the following addresses and 
papers : " Twentieth Century Homoeopathy."

Massachusetts Homoeopathic Medical So- 
ciety in 1889; "The Attitude of the Ameri-

riMOrilY 1-1 ELI) .\LLEN, LL.D., 
was for more than forty years an active 
force in the medical history of New York 
city, a representative of two schools of 
practice, and one of the best exponents of 
homoeopathy after his conversion to its 
principles that any country ever has pro- 
duced. One of his most recent biogra- 
phers said of him : "The homoeopathic 
practice of medicine has no more learned 
and able exponent than Timothy Field 
.\llen. By teaching and example he has 
impressed his own practical views and 
methods upon his generation, and his au- 
thority is as highly respected as his skill 
as a physician and surgeon is universally 
acknowledged." This commentator might 
have gone farther and said that all Timo- 
thy Field Allen was as a teacher or writer 
<ir medical practitioner, was the result of 
his own personal eflfort, of his own de 
termined character and native force. In- 
deed, his nature was a law unto itself; 
not that he was an originator of medical 
thought, not that he brought into life and 
developed into perfect organism new 
homa'opathic doctrines, not that he led the 
way into new fields of medical research, 
but rather that he took up the ideas and 
theories of more timid investigators and 
brought them into actual and healthful 
l)eing. In himself he was an original force, 
.iiul when he entered upon the performance 
of a duty or the accomplishment of any 
new thing or undertaking, there was no 
ob-itacle too formidable for him to over- 
luiiic, no barrier loo strung to baflle his

strength, no task too wearisome to suc- 
cessfully oppose his qualities of determina- 
tion and endurance. In this respect he was 
a marvelous man, and it is fortunate, too, 
for the homoeopathic profession in this 
country that Dr. Allen lived and moved in 
his own day and generation. Glancing 
back over his career of forty years in the 
ranks of medicine, it seems as if Timothy 
Field Allen had been raised up for the 
especial mission of accomplishing results, 
of building up institutions, placing them 
upon a secure basis, and providing for 
their permanent maintenance. And after 
all some of Dr. Allen's qualities may have 
been inherent, for he came of a family 
noted for individual strength and character. 
His father was David Allen, himself a 
physician of note in historic Vermont, and 
of the same family of Aliens that fur- 
nished America with some' of its strongest 
revolutionary characters. Dr. David Allen 
was a son of Silas Allen of Heath, Mass- 
achusetts, who was a practitioner of medi- 
cine before the days of schools for instruc- 
tion in the healing art. Dr. David Allen's 
wife was Eliza Graves of Charlmont, 
Massachusetts, and her mother, family 
tradition says, was a witness of the battle 
of Lexington, which marked the beginning 
of the revolution in 1775. Dr. David Allen 
was a graduate in 1826 of the Williams 
College Medical School, and he subse- 
quently settled in Westminster, Vermont. 
In. that tbwn, Timothy Field Allen was 
born, April 24, 1837. He was given a good 
elementary education, and afterward took 
a regular course at Amherst College, where 
he graduated and he took his bachelor de- 
gree in 1858; and his master degree in 
1861. He read medicine with his father 
and afterward matriculated at the medical 
-department of the University of New York, 
whore he graduated, M. D., in 1861. His 
lioiiorary degree of doctor of laws was 
conftrred by Anilierst College in 1885. 
VN'ell o(|uippcd by native endowment and 
ic<|uirt(l liarning. Dr. .Allen began the 
practice if ini'diciiic in Brooklyn in 1S61, 



a physician then of the old school. Soon 
afterward that city was visited with an 
epidemic of diphtheria, and the resources 
of all practitioners were taxed to meet the 
occasion. Allen entered into the work 
with energj', but to his discouragement 
he lost nearly every case that came under 
his treatment. In some way he became ac- 
quainted with Dr. P. P. Wells, of honored 
memory, a faithful disciple of Hahnemann, 
and who suggested to the young aspirant 
that he try lachesis, two hundredth po- 
tency, which he did (Allen always was 
willing to heed wise counsel) with re- 
markable results, and subsequently more 
than ninety per cent of his cases were 
cured. The seed fell on good ground, and 
sprang up and j-ielded abundantly. Tim- 
othy Field Allen became a pupil under Dr. 
Wells and joined himself to the followers 
of the homoeopathic school. About this 
time, August 15, 1862, he was appointed 
assistant surgeon. United States army, and 
was stationed for a time at Point Lookout, 
where he acquired a valuable experience in 
practical surgery. Returning home, he 
formed a partnership with the late Dr. 
Carroll Dunham of New York and entered 
earnestly upon a career that from the out- 
set was successful; but to school himself 
under the changed conditions he became a 
student at the Hahnemann Medical College 
of Philadelphia and took the diploma of 
that institution in 1865. In New York Dr. 
Allen soon took rank with the leading 
homoeopathic physicians of the city, and 
his reputation as a man of worth in the 
profession became known in other locali- 
ties. His practice was large and he was 
always busy, yet in connection with his 
regular work he tilled the chair of chem- 
istry in the New York Medical College for 
Wonu'u This was his first faculty work. 
In 1870 he was made professor of ana- 
tomy and later professor of materia inedica 
and tlierapeutics and director oi the I.\bor- 
atory of exiiorintental plinrntaooloijy in tiie

iS*<2. he was elected to the deanship and 
served as executive officer of the college 
eleven years, retiring in iSg.V In 1S85 he 
became by election a meniher of the board 
of trustees of the college, and from 1899 
until 19OJ. was president of that body. 
However, it is in connection with the Xcw 
York Ophthalmic Hospital that Dr. Allen 
earned the appreciation and gratitude of 
the community in which he lived so many 
years. While professor of anatomy there, 
his advice and service were requested by 
the trustees in their decision to place that 
institution under homieopathic control. 
The undertaking required a man of repu- 
tation and determined character, and the 
trustees in selecting him for the work had 
in mind his special qualities in that direc- 
tion and also his standing as an oculist and 
surgeon. He answered their request for 
assistance, and with the co-operation of the 
late Professor Liebold introduced homoeo- 
pathic treatment in the hospital and in- 
augurated a policy and system of manage- 
ment that soon placed it at the head of all 
similar institutions. No less important was 
his work in connection with the Laura 
l->'inklin Free Hospital for Children, the 
medical staff of which was composed of 
homieopathic physicians and surgeons ap- 
pointed upon the recommendation of Dr. 
.\llen to the founders of that institution. 
He was a member of the board of man- 
agers of the New York Botanical Garden, 
and a charter member and for many years 
president of the lorry Botanical Club; a 
fellow of the .American .Association for the 
advancement f»f Science and of the New 
York .Academy of Science. He also was 
well known as a medical writer, and his 
"Kncyclopetlia of Pure .Materia Medica" has 
ever l)een regardecl as standard authority 
on the subject it treats. .Among his other 
wfirks. all of which met with popular re-

rmd in 1850 he took up the study of medi- 



cine in the old Homoeopathic Medical Col-

gree in 1853, and in 1854 was one of the

of the session of 1857-58 he resigned and 
removed to St. Louis, Missouri. In 1859 
he was one of the founders of the Homoe- 
opathic Medical College of Missouri, was

and also was registrar of the faculty. In

and on his return to America he organized 
in 1869 the St. Loui? College of Homoe- 
opathic Physicians and Surgeons, of which 
he was the dean and also professor of sur- 
gery. In 1870 he accepted the call of the

^ledical College to the chair of surgery in 
that institution, with which he afterward

period of his life, and in the history of 
wliich he was for more than thirty years 
a valuable factor, not only in the profes- 
sor's chair, but in almost every depart- 
ment of institutional life. In 1S91 he was 
elected member of the board of trustees, 
w liore he gave excellent service in the ad- 
ministrative affairs of the college until the 
time of his death. In 1893 he was made 
(loan of the faculty and performed the re- 
sponsible duties of that office as long as 
lio lived. .\s an evidence of the high re- 
nin <l in which Dr. Helmuth was held by 
till' trustees of tiie college corporation, an 
ixtr.ict of the minutes (May 20, igco) is 
iuro given: "As tliree years ago the trus- 



HISTORY OF HOMCEOPATHY 



tees of this instituticin were suddenly called 
to mourn the loss of Roswcll P. Flower, 
our great benefactor, so now are we in like 
manner called to deplore the death of Will- 
iam Tod Helmuth, the great educator of 
the medical students of our college — the one 
the creator and donor of the famous hos- 
pital that bears his name; the other its dis- 
tinguished surgical head, dean of the fac- 
ulty of both college and hospital, and an 
invaluable member of our board of trus- 
tees." In writing of his professional at- 
tainments, one of Helmuth's biographers 
said : "No one school, no one college, no 
one city, state or country can lay claim 
to the education of this internationally re- 
spected humanitarian." * * * * "To Dr. 
Helmuth more than to any other one man 
do we owe the honor that today graces the 
surgery of our school. He was the grand 
l)ioneer in this art — the man who dared to 
stand forth and show the medical world 
that homceopathic physicians could be 
equally good surgeons with those of the 
dominant school. With courage undaunted 
and fortitude unequalled he pushed forth 
into fields before untraversed by men who 
shared his faith in the practice of medicine 
according to the law of similia, and some- 
what against the wishes and belief of hon- 
ored colleagues who were so incredulous 
as to think that surgery was not needed if 
similibus was heeded." "With his de- 
parture," says Dr. Newton, "there went out 
of the hoinocopathic school of surgery, 
easily, its brightest light ; but the rays of 
that ever-burning have for an approximate 
lialf century so shed their light before and 
penetrated the minds of men that, seeing 
his good works, they have followed him 
and many of them have become famous in 
this branch of the profession." Helmuth 
was a scholar in the finest sense of the 
word, and a writer of remarkable versa- 
tility, both as narrator and as commenta- 
tor, and his contributions to the literature 
of the profession reflected the man himself 
and the catholicity of his talents. Hi"; first 
work, "Surgery and its .Adaption to Homce- 



opathic Practice." appeared in 1^55. and his 
master effort, "A System of Surgery," 
came from the press in 1S73 and was re- 
vised in iiS78, 1879 and 18S7. He wa-; au- 
thor of several other works of professional 
character, and perhaps as many more 
which were written in lighter vein; his 
monograph articles may be counted by 
scores. His degree of LL.D. was confer- 
red by Vale University in i8<S8. He mar- 
ried in St. Louis, February 10, 1859, Fan- 
nie Ida Pntchard, daughter of Colonel John 
Nicholas Pritchard, and had two children, 
Fannie Ida and William Tod Helmirth, Jr.

i860; M. A. 1869. Soon after graduating 
she became a teacher in the New York In- 
stitution for the Blind, remaining there in 
that capacity until 1863, when she married. 
A few years later a previously half-formed 
resolution to take up the study of medi- 
cine became a fixed determination, and she 
matriculated at the New York Medical Col- 
lege and Hospital for Women, where she 
came to her degree in medicine in 1871. 
She at once began practice, devoting herself 
largely to special study and practice in 
obstetrics. In 1875 she was appointed lec- 
turer on obstetrics in her alma mater and 
in 1880 was advanced to the professorship, 
holding that chair eighteen years ; and dur- 
ing eight of those years she also performed 
the responsible duties of the dean^iip. In 
the meantime, too, Dr. Wait had taken a 
special course in the New York Ophthalmic 
Hospital, and was graduated from that fa- 
mous institution before it acquired the right 
to confer the degree of O. et A. Chir. 
From that time her practice included treat- 
ment of diseases of the eye and ear. In 
1898 she resigned her chair in the medical 
college and also ceased active work in con- 
nection with its hospital staff. During the 
course of her professional life. Dr. Wait 
held membership in many medical societies, 
among which may be mentioned the 
Homoeopathic Medical Society of the State 
of New York, the Homoeopathic Medical

the Memorial Hospital, Brooklyn, and was 
also an examiner in lunacy. In philan- 
thropic and socialogic work Dr. Wail was 
for many years president of the S<Kicty for 
Promoting the Welfare of the Insane, was 
one of the vice-presidents of the New York 
Legislative League, an active member of 
the New York Equal Suffrage Lca><uc. and 
for several years was a member of the 
woman's board of the New York Baptist 
Home for the Aged. As president of the 
Woman's Christian Temperance I'nion of 



the County of New York, she was sent to- 
Seattle, Washington, as a state delegate to 
the national convention and subsequently 
made an extensive tour of the Pacific coast; 
and in 1903 she went to Geneva, Switzer- 
land, as national delegate to the world's 
convention of the W. C. T. U., at which 
time also she made a tour of Europe. In 
temperance work she was associated with 
the late Frances Willard and also with the 
late Mr. and Mrs. William Jennings Dcmar- 
est. Her intense interest in all matters re- 
lating to the advancement of women made 
her untiring in her service for the women 
students of the college, and she cheerfully 
responded to many calls for help from 
younger physicians in trying cases along 
the lines of her specialties; while the num- 
ber of needy persons to whom her services 
were gratuitously given was legion. Her 
numerous manuscripts, published and un- 
published, along various lines, but chiefly 
medical, are marked by rare literary ability 
and originality ; in the many societies and 
clubs of which she Avas a member, she 
willingly responded to all requests for pa- 
pers on diverse subjects. Dr. Wait married, 
October 27, 1863. William Bell Wait, who 
survives her. She also leaves a daughter,

SAMUEL LILIENTHAL was bom at 
Munich. Germany, November 5, 1815, and 
died October 3, 1891, at the age of almost 
seventy-six j^ears. Peaceful as was his life 
so was his death. Cheerful and happy to 
the last, he went quietly to sleep, never to 
awake again on this earth. He entered 
the German high school at an early age 
and graduated in 1834. He matriculated at 
the University of Munich in the fall of 
1834, and after a year of preparatory study 
entered upon the study of medicine. He 
took his degree of doctor of medicine in 
1838, and continued his studies in the 
clinics of the Municipal Hospital at Mu- 
nich, until the fall of 1839, when he came 
to America. For fifty years he spent his 
life in unceasing professional activity in 
this country. After a short stay at Heidel- 
berg, Pennsylvania, he went to South Caro- 
lina, whence he returned north to Lockport, 
New York, in 1847. Here was the turning 
point in his medical career ; for, witnessing 
the extraordinary success of homoeopathy 
through the efforts of a resident physician, 
his love of truth forced him to study this 
to him entirely new method of treatment, 
which he penetrated deeper and deeper, 
becoming more attracted with ever\' step 
forward. In 1850 he moved to Haverstraw, 
New York, where he remained for the next 
seven years, removing to New York city 
in 1857, where he resided for thirty years. 
At this time, mainly through the influence 
of the late Dr. Hering. he became the 
associate editor of the "North American 
Journal of Homoeopathy." which he con- 
ducted alone from 1872 until 18S5. when his 
advancing years obliged him to. resign from 
an occupation to which he was sincerely at- 
tached. A few years after the opening of 
the New York Homoeopathic Medical Col- 
lege he became identified with its faculty, 
filling the chair of clinical medicine and 
that of diseases of the nervous system until 
his departure for San Francisco in the 
spring of 1887. as his advancing years in- 
iluced him to seek rest from acli\e en- 
gagements. Dr. Lilicnthal's indefatigable

labors in the field of journali>iTi are well 
known. Besides editing liis own journal — 
for which he made all translations from 
the German, French. Spanish and Italian 
languages — and writing original articles for 
almost every number, he contributed large- 
ly to all of the prominent journals of his 
school. There was no meeting of the Amer- 
ican institute or of the state society, where 
he did not present a valuable paper ; and 
also in his county society his face was 
always to be seen, and he entered with 
spirit into all discussions on points of vital 
importance. His "Homoeopathic Therapeu- 
tics" is a book probably more often re- 
ferred to by homoeopathic physicians for 
hints in prescribing than any extant. This 
work gave him his chief fame. In it he 
gathered the ripe experience of all our best 
men in a most scrupulous and careful con- 
densation, and when he answered the call 
of the angel of death he was busily en- 
gaged in the preparation of the fourth edi- 
tion. He made provings of carbolic acid, 
silicum, physostigma, etc. He also was 
the author of a work on skin diseases.

ORANGE SCOTT RUNNELS, Indian- 
apolis, Indiana, surgeon, was born near New- 
ark, Licking county, Ohio, June 11,1847, and 
was the eighth child of Edwin and Lydia 
Eaton Runnels, who had a family of seven 
boys and four girls. On his father's side 
he is of Scotch descent. His ancestors set- 
tled among the Acadians of Nova Scotia, 
and after the banishment of the French 
from the province emigrated. to Massachu- 
setts. His great-grandfather, Stephen Run- 
nels, was a member of the first company en- 
listing at Haverhill after the battle of Lex- 
ington, and was a participant in the battle 
of Bunker Hill. His grandfather, a farmer of 
Topsham, Vermont, emigrated to Ohio in 
1819, "built his cabin in the woods and 
moved into it the third day without chink- 
ing, flooring or chimney." His father, at 
the age of eleven, shared in the hardships 
incident to the establishment of his home 
on the Ohio frontier, forty miles from any 
settlement. Guided by marked trees, he 
walked four miles every day to a school- 
house, whose benches were made of split 
timber, and whose windows were filled with 
oiled paper instead of glass. Orange Scott 
Runnels remained on his father's farm until 
he was eighteen years of age, and then 
went to Oberlin, Ohio, to prepare for col- 
lege. He remained there four years, win- 
ter seasons excepted, when he taught to 
earn money to defray his expenses. To in- 
crease his meagre income he spent his leis- 
ure time while a student in sawing wood at 
seventy-five cents a cord, thus denying him- 
self indulgence in athletic sports. On ac- 
count of ill health he was unable to go on 
with his course, and was forced to discon- 
tinue at the beginning of his freshman year. 
.\t the age of twenty-two he entered the 
Cleveland Homoeopathic Hospital College, 
Cleveland, Ohio, and in February, 1S71. 
was gratlualed therefrom. In April ot tli.U

has gained a national reputation. For fif- 
teen years he has niaintain"ed at his own

honors of his profession in his state and 
nation. At the age of thirty-eight he was

tute of Homoeopathy, and presided at the 
Saratoga session in 1886. During that year 
he was sent as the representative of the 
.American profession to the World's Ho- 
nueopathic Congress at Basle, Switzerland,

after," "Miracles," "Surgical Intervention

A. EUGENE .XUSTIN. New York city. 
was born there June i, 1868. son of Rev. 
Alonzo Eugene .Austin and Isabclle J. Camp. 
his wife. He is a grandson of the late .Augus- 
tus Austin, who was son of Ral|)li Austin, 
who was son of Joshua Austin, who was 
son f)f Lord Austin of England. Joshua 
Austin was sent tf) America under royal 
commission, hence remained loyal to the 
crown during the revolution; and when his 
lands and property were confiscated he be- 
came master of an academy in Philadelphia, 



Pennsylvania, and later on removed to New 
Milford in the same state. Moses Austin 
and his son Stephen, who were largely in- 
strumental in founding Te.xas. and for 
whom Austin and .\ustinville (the la'tter 
in \'irginia) were named, are of the same 
family. .Augustus Austin bought large 
tracts of timber land in Sullivan county. 
He was a giant in strength and prowess, 
full of humor and music and never-failing 
courtesy, beloved by liis woodsmen, "an 
ideal man" to his little grandson, whose 
young life he greatly influenced: the city 
boy's vacation days at Eldred were filled 
with delight and his early ambition to some 
day own the place on the hill where his 
father was born and where his grandpar- 
ents spent a part of their time in summer, 
has been happily realized. Rev. Alonzo Eu- 
gene Austin, the doctor's father, is a man 
universally beloved and admired. A man 
of high principle, clear judgment, keen in- 
tellect, ready wit. daring courage, sincere, 
sympathetic, gracious, a successful teacher 
and preacher. Once he was very sick and 
was given up by his physicians of the old 
school ; but he was cured through the min- 
istrations of Dr. Lewis Hallock. an earlv 
hom<ropatli. and he himself was thereby 
converted to that medical faith. Later on 
he became the pioneer missionary of the 
Presbvterian board to the Alaska Indians, 
among whom he built up the great indus- 
trial training school at Sitka, where with 
his wife he lived nearly twenty years, and 
among whom they both preached and 
taught and practiced medicine ; and this 
was the introduction of homcvopathy in that 
great far-ofT northwestern region of Amer- 
ica. .Augustus Austin married Phoebe Ala- 
ri.i. daughter of Hon. James Eldred. who 
w.is a son of Elisha F-Ulred of London, 
luigland. James Eldred was a careful Riblc 
student. He taught its precepts to his chil- 
dren .-ind to the white settlers, who came 
every Sim<lay to his house and worshipped 
there until the church edifice crowned the 
near-by hill. He was a man of influence 
and substance, a justice of the peace, and »

leader among the people ; and for nearly 
thirty-eight years was deacon in the church 
at Half-way Brook, Highland, since called 
Eldred in his honor. Eldred in Pennsyl- 
vania was so named in allusion to his 
brother Richard, a lawyer of note. On the 
maternal side Dr. Austin is a descendant 
of the ninth generation of Nicholas Camp 
of Camp's farms,- Essex county, England, 
who settled in Milford, Connecticut, 1639. 
Rev. Amzi Camp, the doctor's grandfather, 
devoted his life to missionary labors among 
the worst types of New York city civili- 
zation, in the "bloody sixth ward," which 
included '"Five Points" and the "Tombs," 
and the "Camp memorial," a still flourish- 
ing old mission in Chrystie street, is one of 
the results of his ministry. Dr. Austin's 
mother's life is filled with good works, 
given to hospitality, charity, faith, prayers, 
brave, strong and happy ; her consecration 
and motherliness won the poor of her fath- 
er's mission in the slums of the great city, 
the hearts of the Indians in Alaskan fields, 
and the admiration of the officers of the 
navy and other distinguished guests they 
entertained. Through her Dr. Austin is 
connected with several noted New Eng- 
land families — the Porters, Hickocks, Bun- 
nells, Beechers, and is a descendant of Dea- 
con Daniel Hovey, who came to New Ips- 
wich, Massachusetts, 1620; ancestors who 
were founders and patriots in colonial 
and revolutionary times. Dr. Austin wa3 
educated in private schools in New York 
city and fitted for college under the instruc- 
tion of Professor C. Dunning of South 
Norwalk, Connecticut. He gr.^duated from 
Tilton Seminary, Tilton, New Hampshire, 
in 1892, and the Columbia College of Ora- 
tory and School of Expression, Chicago, in 
1905. He was educated in medicine in the 
College of Physicians and Surgeons, New 
York city, 1896; for three years was a pri- 
vate student with William H. Porter, M. 
D. He also iitteiuied hospital clinics and 
courses with >|)ccialists, and in i8t)7 was 
awarded the diploma in mtilicinc of the 
New York llmiiiitipailiic Collene and Hos- 



pital. He holds, too, the degree of master 
of homoeopathies, conferred by Hering 
Medical College, Chicago, April 11, 1905. 
He practiced four years in New York city, 
maintaining a summer office in Eldred, and 
in 1904-05 was in Chicago for still further 
study under the special instruction of Dr. 
James Tyler Kent. He also studied ma- 
teria medica in Hahnemann Medical Col- 
lege, and with Dr. H. C. Allen in Hering 
Medical College, both in Chicago. Since 
he came to the degree Dr. Austin has filled 
hospital, clinical and college appointments 
as follows : at the Sloan Maternity Hos- 
pital with Dr. Tucker; Roosevelt Hospital, 
outdoor department, assistant to Drs. 
Brockway and Hartley; on the staff of 
Flower Hospital ; one year in the Ophthal- 
mic Hospital ; professor of materia medica,

and Hospital, 1902-04 ; associate professor 
with the dean and professor in the depart- 
ment of homoeopathies, Hering ^ledical

as 1st lieutenant of a militarj* coiripany in 
Tilton, New- Hampshire, in 1890, and in 
Sitka, Alaska, was one of the organizers 
of the fire company, with which he served 
several years. He is a member of the New

and a good shot ; he would be away with 
ihe chiefs, sealing, fishing, hunting, for 
weeks at a time; scaling the mountains and 
glaciers, shooting the rapids ; many the 
storm he weathered with them in canoes on 
Ihe Pacific, when the fierce gales would 
blow them far off the shore. The Indians 
taught him their language, hieroglyphics, 
signs in the woods and their weird folk- 
lore ; he could dance their war dances and 
share in their festivals, for they had adopt- 
ed and made him one of their braves; and 
knowing their language and customs, he 
assisted in securing some valuable collec- 
tions for our museums. After his father 
and mother had saved their tribes with 
medical treatment through the ravages of 
a dreadful scourge, they both were made 
tribesmen, "Father" Austin being given the 
name Cat-lay-you, and was made chief of 
the Crow tribe; the mother's Indian name 
was She-he-he, with the rank of chief's 
w ife in the powerful Bear tribe ; and as the 
son always belongs to his mother's tribe, 
Dr. Austin was named Taa-ki-ish — father 
of nations; and he was invited to become a 
chief. Five years after his return east an

AMOS RUSSELL THOMAS, professor 
of anatomy in Hahnemann Medical College 
of Philadelphia and its predecessor insti- 
tutions for full forty years, dean of the 
faculty for more than twenty years, and 
one of the most loyal friends any school 
of medicine ever had, was born in Water- 
town, Jefiferson county. New York. October 
,^. 1826, and died at his country home, 
Llangollen, Devon, Pennsylvania, October 
31, 1895. During the period of his long 
and useful life in the ranks of the medical 
profession no man contributed more than 
he in elevating the standard of the homoeo- 
pathic school ; no man taught with more 
earnestness or better results, and no man 
gave more abundantly or freely in advanc- 
ing the interests of the homoeopathic pro- 
fession in general, whether in teaching, 
writing or personal endeavor without the 
hope of recompense. Still, Dr. Thomas' 
endeavors in behalf of homoeopathy were 
not unrewarded, for no man in the profes- 
sion was more universally re^i)ccted than 
he, and none enjoyed a wider circle of 
friendships ; and withal his professional 
life was successful and he was enabled to 
live in comfort to the end of his allotted 
three-score years and ten. Best of all, he 
was a self-made man, having carved his 
own way in life from the days of his young 
manhood. His father was Colonel Azariah 
Thomas, of an old family in the St. Law- 
rence region in Northern New York and 
who served as an officer under Major Gen- 
eral Jacob Brown during the second war

with Great Britain. He was of Welsh de- 
scent, but his American ancestors were 
among the early families of Massachusetts. 
His young life was spent on the farm, and 
he was brought up to hard work. His edu- 
cation, both elementary and professional, 
was the result of his own unaided effort, 
and was acquired largely by study at home, 
frequently at night. He taught school for 
a time, but in 1850 engaged in mercantile 
pursuits in Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence 
county, New York. Two years later, 1852, 
he entered Syracuse Medical College, and 
graduated M. D., 1854. He then went to 
Philadelphia and attended lectures at the 
Pennsylvania Medical University, where he 
graduated, and for the next three years he 
was demonstrator of anatomy. As a teacher 
of anatomy his work soon attracted atten- 
tion and other schools began to draw on 
him for service. In 1856 he was appointed 
to the professorship of artistic anatomy in 
the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, 
which position he held fourteen years. In 
1863 he was appointed to a similar position 
in the School of Design for Women, Phil- 
adelphia, and served in that capacity eight 
years. During the war of 1861-1865, after 
the second Bull Run battle, he offered his 
services to the government as surgeon and 
was stationed for a time in the Armory 
Square hospital in Washington. During 
these early years of his professional life 
Dr. Thomas had given much serious 
thought to the subject of homoeopathy, and 
as his investigations proceeded he became 
convinced of the superior worth ■ of the 
teachings and principles of the Hahne- 
mannian school, and he accepted them, 
freely and fully, and arrayed himself un- 
equivocally with those who held to the 
theory of sinttlia similibus curantur. In 
i860 Dr. Thomas was called to tlie chair 
of anatomy in the Hahnemann Medical 
College of Philadelphia, and from that time 
to 189s he held that professorship and per- 
formed its duties; from that time he was 
an important factor in the life of the 
school, and by liis (K'liriiiiiKHl force of 



character sustained and upheld it. He was 
a tower of strength in the faculty, and 
possessed excellent business qualities, hence 
his appointment to the deanship in 1874 
was only a natural result. This oflSce he 
held until the time of his death, a period of 
tw-enty-one years. In the early part of 
1894 Dr. Thomas was impelled by failing 
health to relinquish active professional 
work and to remove from Philadelphia to 
his country home at Llangollen, Devon, 
away from the busy life of the great city; 
but he continued his course of lectures un- 
til the middle of November of the year 
mentioned, when he was stricken with a 
complicated malady from which he never 
recovered. In May, 1895, he was removed 
to his home in Devon, where he was con- 
fined to his bed until death relieved his 
sufferings. October 31, 1895. On Miay 8, 
1894, the alumni of the college celebrated 
the fortieth anniversary of Dr. Thomas as 
professor of anatomy, and on that occa- 
sion the loyal sons of the institution raised 
a fund of five thousand dollars for the en- 
dowment in perpetuity of "The Amos Rus- 
sell Thomas Free Bed" in the Hahnemann 
Hospital in Philadelphia. Dr. Thomas was 
interested in the institutions of homoeop- 
athy and others of varied character. He 
was a member and a conspicuous figure in 
the work of the American Institute of 
Homoeopathy, the Pennsylvania State and 
Philadelphia County Homoeopathic Med- 
ical societies, the Fairmount Park Asso- 
ciation of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania 
Horticultural Society, the Academy of Nat- 
ural Sciences, the Historical Society of 
Pennsylvania, and of the anatomical Ix^ard 
of the state of Pennsylvania. His contribu- 
tions to the literature of honuvopatliy in- 
clude many mono.nraph articles in published 
magazines and pamphlets, and tor live 
years he was general editor of the ".\mer- 
ican Journal of Houjivopathic Materia 
Modica." lie was author of "Post-Mortem 
Examinations and Mmbiil .Anatomy." a 
work which was highly commended in 
lionuropathic medical circles; "Diseases of

Man," "History of Anatomy," "History of 
the Descendants of William Thomas of 
Hardwick, Mass. (1678-1891)," "A New 
Preparation of tiie Xervous System." etc. 
His writings, like his lectures and public 
addresses, were always clear, clean, free of 
verbiage and perfectly consistent, reflecting 
the man himself, who was devoid of van- 
ity or ostentation, yet always courteous and 
dignified — a gentleman of the best type, 
and, withal, of splendid personal appear- 
ance and strikingly handsome face. Dr. 
Thomas married Elizabeth Bacon, of 
AVatertown, New York, who bore him two 
•children, Charles M. Thomas, A. M., 
M. D.. of Philadelphia, professor of oph- 
thalmology and otologA' and dean of the 
faculty of Hahnemann Medical College and 
Hospital of Philadelphia; and Florence 
Thomas, who married Dr. J. Nicholas 
Mitchell, and died in 1880.

EDWIN H. JONES, Philadelphia. Penn-

ward H. and Mary A. Jones. He was edu-

triculated in Hahnemann Medical College 
and Hospital, Philadelphia, where he came 
to his degree in medicine in i88g. Since 
that time he has been in continuous prac- 
tice with, as has been stated, electro-thera- 
peutics and X-ray science as specialties. In 
this particular field of professional activity 
Dr. Jones has acquired an enviable reputa- 
tion, and it is not a violation of any ethical 
propriety of our homoeopathic school to 
state that his appliances for special work 
are not equalled in the city of Philadelphia, 
if, indeed, they are surpassed by any simi- 
larlj' equipped establishment in the coun- 
try. Best of all, Dr. Jones himself is an 
electro-therapeutist whose name is known 
in all professional circles and particularly 
in the societies and associations of those 
whose practice is along electro-therapeutic 
lines, the intelligent and skillful adaption 
of electrical forces — galvanic, faradic and 
static — as a means of cure. In September, 
1888, Edwin H. Jones married Katharine 
E. Cobden of Woodbury, N. J., and has two 
children : Byron C. and Katharine C.
