Directory of Deceased American Physicians, 1804-1929: John Fondey - type of practice: Allopath; state/year of licenses: PA; University of PA School of Medicine, Philadelphia, 1837, (G); died Dec 31, 1881.

Letters to the Editor - A Counterblast against Vaccination - Sir, The following is from the pen of a prominent physician (Dr John Fondey) who was born in the city of Albany, and brought up at the feet of Dr. Townsend, one of our medical Garmaliels, an uncle of his, with whom he read medicine nearly fifty years ago, and afterwards graduated at the Pensylvania university. He then practiced medicine with good success for a few years, until he became a confirmed consumptive. After consulting some of his brother colleagues they came to the conclusion and said that a very short time might close his usefulness. He then turned his attention to other reformed practices of medicine. In a few months his health began to recuperate and he continued his practice in this city in the reformed schools, until he was elected professor of materia medica in one of the southern medical colleges. The Albany Daily Evening Times, Monday, March 10, 1873.
