LEE, Charles Alfred, physician, born in Salisbury, Connecticut. 3 March, 1801; died in Peekskill, New York, 14 February, 1872. He was graduated at Williams in 1822, and at Berkshire medical college in 1825. In 1826 he settled in New York, and with Dr. James Stewart founded the Northern dispensary of that city, of which he was long the chief physician. Dr. Lee held professorships at various times, chiefly of materia medica and obstetrics, in the medical departments of the University of New York and elsewhere. He was one of the founders of the medical college of the University of New York, and of the Buffalo medical college, of which he was professor emeritus at the time of his death. His attention during his later years was devoted to the subject of the treatment of the insane, and his views on the colonization or outdoor system, which he personally investigated while he was in Europe in 1865, were adopted after his return by some of the chief institutions for the insane in this country. For some years he conducted the "New York Journal Of Medicine," and he edited the American edition of Copeland's "Dictionary of Practical Medicine" (New York, 1844-'58). Besides writing numerous medical articles, he was the author of several successful text books, "Elements of Geology for Popular Use" (New York), and "Human Physiology."
