American author, wit, and poet, was born in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, August 29, 1809. He graduated at Har-
vard in 1829, and commenced the study of law, but soon
abandoned it for medicine. Early in 1833 he visited
Europe, where for nearly three years he pursued his
medical studies, attending the hospitals of Paris and
other large cities. He returned to his native country
in 1835, and took the degree of doctor of medicine at
Harvard in 1836. In 1838 he was elected professor of
anatomy and physiology in Dartmouth College. About
two years afterwards he resigned this position, and in
1847 was chosen to fill the same chair at Harvard Uni-
versity, as successor to Dr. Warren. Holmes had dis-
tinguished himself as a poet even before he left college.

other poems. In 1857-8 he contributed to the " Atlantic

Table," and in 1872 by "The Poet at the Breakfast-
Table." These contributions abound in humour and wit,
and exhibit a shrewd insight into human character. His

and "The Guardian Angel," (1868,) besides numerous
minor works, among which are " Mechanism in Thought
and Morals," (1870,) "Songs of Many Seasons," a col-

(1878,) "The Iron Gate, and Other Poems," (1880,) and
a biography of Emerson, (1885.) As a poet, Dr. Holmes
was especially distinguished for wit and humour joined
with a remarkable felicity of expression. As a song-
writer he had few, if any, superiors in America ; but
he particularly excelled in the playful vein. Among
his effusions of this class we could not, perhaps, select
an example which better exhibits his playful fancy or his
wonderful facility and fertility of resources as a versifier,



than his lines addressed to Agassiz when setting out on

his scientific tour in South America. Died Oct. 7, 1894.
