ated at the University of Pennsylvania, 1845, was admitted to the Medical Society
of Somerset County, N. J., 1846, and at once began to practice at Neshanic ; he
was admitted to the Medical Society of Hunterdon County, May 6, 1S51, and was
elected Secretary the same day ; he moved to Flemington at that time and prac-
ticed there until October 28, 1851, when he resigned from the Society, was elected
an honorary member, and removed to Easton, Pa. Here he practiced till the
breaking out of the Civil War, when he entered the army as Surgeon of the First
Pennsylvania Volunteers. He afterwards became Stafi Surgeon, and was in
charge of various large general hospitals at Nashville and elsewhere.* At the
close of the war he settled in Knoxville, Tenn., practicing his profession there
for fourteen years. He was appointed by Governor Brownlow a trustee of the
University of Tennessee, and was also a State Director of the Knoxville and Ohio
Railroad Company. In 1880 he returned to Easton, where he still lives and prac-
tices. Dr. Ludlow has always been much interested in the welfare of the horse,
and he found time some years ago to publish, under the name of " Science in the
Stable," a small work giving the results of a long series of experiments and ob-
servations on the hygiene of that animal.

ship of Mathematics at his Alma Mater, but resigned in 1879 to devote himself to
law. He was admitted to the Philadelphia Bar in 1881 and practiced in that
city until 1887, when considerations of health led him to Denver, where he took
up the study of medicine. After graduating and taking two years of clinical
work there, and special post-graduate study at Johns Hopkins and at the
