JOHN BUTTERFIELD, M.D., Died, on the 7th of
September, 1849, at Salisbury, New Hampshire, of consumption. At the time of his
death, he was Professor of the Theory and Practice of Medicine in
Starling Medical College,
Ohio, and Editor of the Ohio
Medical and Surgical Journal. As a lecturer and teacher, Dr.
Butterfield had but few equals. His talents were
of a superior order. As an editor, he was peculiarly adapted to his calling,
and, we fear, it will be difficult to find for his successor one possessed of
the same rare combination of talents which characterized the deceased. (N. Y.
Journ. Med.) Dr. Butterfield was a member of
the American Medical Association.
