FORD, Corydon La, physician, born in Lexington, Greene County, New York, 29 August 1813. He removed with his parents to Otsego County in 1815, and, after attending Canandaigua academy and studying with several physicians, entered Geneva medical College, where he was graduated in 1842. He was demonstrator of anatomy there in 1842'8, and in Buffalo Medical College in 1847'51, professor of anatomy in Castleton, Vermont, medical College in 1849'61, and of anatomy and physiology in Berkshire medical institution, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, in 1860'7. He held the same chair in the Bowdoin College medical school in 1864'70, and in 1854 accepted the chair of anatomy in the University of Michigan to which that of physiology was added in 1860. In 1868'86 he also lectured annually in Long Island College hospital, Brooklyn, New York, and in the latter year became professor emeritus in that institution. Michigan University gave him the degree of LL. D. in 1881. Dr. Ford is considered one of the ablest teachers of anatomy in the country, and is the author of "Questions on Anatomy, Histology, and Physiology, for the use of Students" (last ed., Ann Arbor, 1878); "Syllabus of Lectures on Odontology, Human and Comparetive" (1884); and " Questions on the Structure and Development of the Human Teeth" (1885).
