HALL, Andrew Douglass, physician, born in St. George's parish, Hempstead, Queens County, New York, 2 July, 1833. He was graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in 1851, and at Jefferson medical college in 1854. After serving as resident physician in the Episcopal and Pennsylvania hospitals in Philadelphia, he entered on general practice in that city in 1858. In 1863 he was elected attending surgeon to the Wills hospital, and in 1867 surgeon to St. Mary's hospital, which latter office he resigned after five years' service. His specialty is diseases of the eye. He is a member of several medical associations, and, as one of the original members of the Pathological society, has contributed numerous papers to its first volume of "Transactions." Articles from his pen on subjects connected with ophthalmology have frequently appeared in professional journals.
