ALDEN, Ebenezer, physician, born in Randolph, Massachusetts, 17 March 1788; died there 26 January 1881. He was of the seventh generation from John Alden of Mayflower memory, and was graduated at Harvard in 1808. He was the last survivor of his class, which included his friends Richard Henry Dana, and Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, of South Carolina. He studied medicine at Dartmouth and at the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his degree in 1812, and followed his profession throughout his life in his native town. He published "Historical Sketch of the Massachusetts Medical Society" (Boston, 1838); "Memoir of Mrs. M. A. O. Clark" (Boston, 1844); and the "Alden Memorial" (Boston, 1867). In October 1881, a memorial brochure was published, containing a biographical sketch, with a portrait, of Dr. Alden, together with the funeral addresses.
