BROWN, Buckminster, surgeon, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 13 July, 1819. His father and grandfather were physicians, as was also his mother's father, who was the first professor of surgery at Harvard. Dr. Brown was graduated at Harvard medical school in 1844, and, after extended travels and supplementary studies abroad under Drs. Little, of London, Guerin and Bouvier, of Paris, and Prof. Strohmeyer, of Germany, returned to Boston. Devoting himself to orthopaedic surgery, he has attained experience and skill that places him among the foremost living specialists in that line. One of his most noteworthy cases was double congenital displacement of the hips in a girl four years old. No cotyloid cavities existed, but, after two years of treatment, cavities were formed, and the child's walk and bearing became normal. He has operated successfully upon diseased and angular hips, spinal deformities, and kindred malformations. In 1856 he married Sarah A. Newcomb, great-granddaughter of General Warren, of revolutionary fame. He is a member of the Boston medical association, of the Massachusetts medical society, and of the Suffolk district medical society. For many years he was surgeon of the house of the good Samaritan. He is the author of many technical treatises, including a full account of the instance of the double-hip displacement referred to above. In 1856 he published, in the "North American Review," a paper on "The Poetry of Anatomy," and he has contributed largely to medical and surgical journals.
