GILMAN, Chandler Robbins, physician, born in Marietta, Ohio, 6 September, 1802; died in Middletown, Connecticut, 26 September, 1865. His ancestors were among the earliest settlers of Ohio. During his childhood his father removed to Philadelphia, where the son took the degree of M. D, in the University of Pennsylvania in 1824, and soon afterward went to reside in New York, where the whole of his active professional life was passed. From 1841 till his death he was professor of obstetrics and diseases of women and children in the College of physicians and surgeons, and after the death of Dr. Beck, in 1851, was also professor of medical jurisprudence. Early in life he, with his relative, Charles Fenno Hoffman, had charge of the "American Monthly." Besides numerous contributions to medical magazines, he published the following in book-form: "Legends of a Log-Cabin" and "Life on the Lakes" (1835); a translation, with Dr. Theodore Tellkampf, of Bischoff's monograph '" On the Periodical Discharge of the Ovum" (New York, 1847); "Sketch of the Life and Character of Dr. J.
