mitted to the Albany Hospital. In accordance with authority from
the commander-in-chief, Surgeon-General Vanderpoel, on April 19,
1861, appointed Drs. Alden March, Thomas Hun, and Mason F. Cogs-
well of this city, a commission for the examination of candidates for
the position of surgeon and assistant surgeon of the volunteer regi-
ments from this State. Dr. John "\'. Lansing was named as secretary,
and Dr. Joseph Lewi was added to the commission as an adjunct mem-
ber. Four hundred and sixty-eight applicants were examined by this
board. Of this number two hundred and twenty eight qualified as
surgeons, and one hundred and sixty-seven as assistant surgeons. This
commission remained in service until December 10, 1861. Many of
the best minds in the profession from this city tendered their ser-
vices and were assigned to duty in camp, field, and hospitals. Dr.
Mason F. Cogswell was surgeon in charge of a post hospital and
served as a volunteer surgeon in the Army of the Potomac in 1862.
In 1863 Dr. Cogswell, in connection with Dr. Thomas Hun, inspected
for the Christian Commission, the military hospitals of the west and

southwest. Dr. Alden March, at the time professor of surgerv at the
Albany Medical College, devoted much of his time to the care of the
sick and wounded inmates of the Soldiers' Home located at Albany.
Dr. John V. Lansing was appointed acting assistant surgeon and as-
signed to duty as examiner of recruits at the Albany barracks. Dr.
Henry March, son of Alden March, was commissioned assistant sur-
geon of volunteers in 1862 and assigned to hospital duty at Fortress
]\Ionroe and at Fredericksburg, \'a. Dr. William H. Bailey, a prom-
inent physician of Alban}', was commissioned as surgeon of volunteers
and assigned to duty at Washington, D. C, and in field hospitals of
the Army of the Potomac. Dr. John Swinburne served at the recruit-
ing rendezvous at Albany from 1861 to 1862. Dr. Swinburne was also
a member of the corps of volunteer surgeons assigned to duty with
the Army of the Potomac during the peninsular campaign in 1802.
In connection with Drs. Willard, Cogswell, and Lansing, he was di-
rected by the medical director of the Army of the Potomac to estalilish
a field hospital on the Pamunkey River at a point known as the White
House, and remained in charge of this hospital until he was appointed
acting assistant surgeon U. S. A. and assigned to duty as surgeon in
charge of field hospital at Savage Station, Ya. Dr. James H. Armsby
was one of the attending surgeons at the Soldiers' Home in this city.
Drs. Levi Moore, James L. Babcock, Ira Delamater, and A. P. Ten
Eyck, men esteemed by the community and respected as physicians,
largely assisted in caring for the sick and wounded soldiers confined in
hospital and barracks. Dr. Samuel H. Freeman, still active in the
profession, served as an attending physician at the Soldiers' Home.

Physicians who performed military service other than professional
were Dr. O. D. Ball, who enlisted November 1, 1861, and was mustered
as sergeant of Co. M, 3d Artillery, N. Y. Vols., December 9, of the
same year. Doctor Ball was promoted 3d lieutenant of Co. I, May 21,
1864. February 14, 1865, was advanced to 1st lieutenant and mustered
out of service with his company July 7, 1865. After the close of the
war Doctor Ball practiced medicine in Otsego county, N. Y. In 1874
he removed to Albany and is still actively engaged in the practice of
his profession. Doctor Ball is a member of the State Medical Societv
and ex-president of the County Medical Society,

Dr. Edward E. Brown was commissioned 1st lieutenant of Co. K. 5th

Brown is a graduate of the Albany Medical College, practiced his pro-
fession in the town of Bethlehem and at Albany and removed to
Massachusetts.

Dr. Ezra A. Bartlett enlisted as a private in the 4th U. S. Artillery
in lS6o. He served with the Army of the Cumberland and Tennessee,
participating in many engagements and was wounded at Pulaski, Tenn.,
in Januar}-, 1865. In 1866 he was honorably discharged from the ser-
vice and completed his collegiate education. After graduating he stud-
ied medicine at th; Albany Medical College and began the practice of
his profession at Albany. Doctor Bartlett is a lecturer at the Albany
Medical College, a member of the staff of the Albany Hospital and a
contributor to the literature of his profession.

Dr. Frederick C. Curtis was enrolled as a private in Co. B, 40th Regi-
ment Wisconsin Vols., May 17, 18(i4, and was discharged on the 16th
of September of same year by reason of expiration of term of enlist-
ment. His regiment, mainly recruited from colleges and academies,
Doctor Curtis at the time being in his sophomore year at Beloit Col-
lege, served in the defenses of Memphis, Tenn., and participated in the
engagement defending the city against the raid of General Forrest.
Doctor Curtis is active in the profession, is a member of the .State Board
of Health, connected with the college faculty and hospital staff, and since
1888 has been secretary of the New York State Medical Society.

Dr. John H. Wilbur at the outbreak of the Rebellion was a student of
medicine registered with Dr. J. D. Wheeler, West Fulton, Scho-
harie county, X. Y. He enlisted as a private in Co. C, 44th N. Y.
Vols., August ^2 1861, and was discharged for disability May ,5, 1863.
After leaving the army he resumed the study of medicine and was
graduated from the Eclectic Medical College, Philadelphia, Pa., in
1864. Doctor Wilbur practiced medicine at West Fulton for three
years, removed to Oak Hill, Greene county, N. Y., where he remained
four years. In 1874 he settled in the city of Cohoes and practiced his
profession until his death March 20, 1896.

The passage of the act of March 18, 1806, authorizing the formation
of medical societies, marked the beginning of a new era in the profes-
sion Previous to that date physicians had been free to begin practice
when and where they saw fit. The result, as has been seen, was to de-
grade the noble profession. The ignorant pretender, in many localities,
stood upon substantially the same footing as regarded success in ob-
taining patients, with the skilled and educated man. The field was



185

overrun with (juacks of all kinds and who based their claims to business
upon all manner of pretenses. The time was sure to arrive when rep-
utable physicians would adopt measures for self protection, which
would serve to sepai-ate them from the army of disreputable practi-
tioners. Dr. Thomas Hun wrote in 1844 that : "Quackery must be
suppressed, not by legislation, but by enlightening public opinion of
its dangers. The respectability of our profession is to be promoted,
not by asking for legal privileges, but by an increase of individual zeal
and co-operation." That was written nearly forty years after medical
societies came into existence and indicates what must have been the
conditions of the profession at a much earlier period.

It has frequently been placed on record that the Albany County Med-
ical Society is the oldest medical society in the State. This is an error.
The date of its organization was July 39, 1806, at which date there
were five other county medical societies in existence, all of which ex-
cepting that of Columbia county, were, however, organized in the same
month with the Albany County Society. This society has been one of
the most persistently active in the State, and has met with regularity.
It has been instrumental in contending against local epidemics and un-
sanitary conditions, its advice having been frequently sought by the
mayor and council of Albany. Its discipline over unprofessional mem-
bers has been both strict and just, and it has been more than generous
in perpetuating the memory of its deceased members in printed biogra-
phies and in the publication of its own proceedings.

Following is a chronological list of the members of this society from
its organization, with the year of graduation, and other details;
