POPE, Albert Augustus, manufacturer, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 20 May, 1843. He was educated at public schools, but even as a boy was compelled to earn his own living. In 1862 he was commissioned 2d lieutenant in the 35th Massachusetts regiment, with which he continued until the close of the war. when he was mustered out with the brevet rank of lieutenant-colonel. Soon afterward he became head of a shoe-finding business. In 1877 he began to take an interest in bicycles, and during that year ordered eight from Manchester, England. Subsequently he became actively engaged in their manufacture, and it is chiefly due to his enterprise that most of the improvements of the bicycle in this country have been brought about. Colonel Pope was instrumental in founding " Outing," a journal that for several years was published by him.--His twin sisters, Emily Frances and Caroline Augusta, physicians, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 18 February, 1846, were graduated at the Brookline high-school, and at the New England medical college in 1870. Subsequently they devoted some time to hospital study in London and Paris, and on their return became attached to the New England hospital for women and children. In 1873 they established themselves in general practice, in which they have been successful. Both are members of the New England hospital medical society, and of the Massachusetts medical society, and, with Emily L. Call, they prepared "The Practice of Medicine in the United States" (Boston, 1881).
