William T. Babb, a student of Dr. Davidson, was born in Jersey Shore, December 10, 1822, and graduated high up in his class. After receiving his diploma he was retained for a short time as demonstrator of anatomy in the Pennsylvania Medical College. He applied for admission as an assistant surgeon in the navy and passed a brilliant examination. He served for several years in this capacity, visited many foreign ports, and was present, at the bombardment of Vera Cruz during the Mexican war. Tiring of the navy he resigned his commission, returned to Jersey Shore, and entered into partnership with his old preceptor. On the breaking out of the civil war he went out with the Eleventh Regiment, Colonel Jarret, as assistant surgeon, and served a short time in the field. Falling ill he hastened to the home of his sister, in Philadelphia, where he died, April 25, 1862, in the forty-second year of his age. Dr. Babb was a gentleman of polished address and very successful as a physician and surgeon. He was well read in history, science, and literature, and had he lived would have attained to eminence in his profession.
