ROBERTS BARTHOLOW, M.D., LL.D.,
Philadelphia

We regret to announce the death of Dr. Roberts Bartholow, Emeritus Professor of Materia Medica and Therapeutics in the Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, and recognized throughout the medical world as an authority on therapeutics. He was born in Maryland in 1831, and, after graduating in arts at Calvert College, he studied medicine in the University of Maryland, taking his doctor's degree in 1852. He joined the medical staff of the United States army in 1856, and after serving for eight years accepted the professorship of the practice of medicine in the Medical College of Ohio at Cincinnati. In 1879 he migrated to Philadelphia, and was appointed to the Chair of Materia Medica and Therapeutics in the Jefferson Medical College. Dr. Bartholow was the author of "A Practical Treatise on Materia Medica and Therapeutics" and of a treatise on "Practice of Medicine," both of which were very successful and brought him wide reputation. The former of these works is now in its eleventh edition, while the latter has been translated into Japanese. He was also the author of lectures on the "Antagonism between Medicines and between Remedies and Diseases" dilvered in New York in 1880, of a treatise on hypodermic medication, etc.
