LENTE, Frederick Divoux, physician, born in New Berne, North Carolina, 23 December, 1823; died in Cold Spring, New York, 17 September, 1883. He was of mixed Dutch and Huguenot descent. He was graduated at the University of North Carolina and subsequently at the medical department of the University of the city of New York in 1849. From 1848 till 1851 he was house surgeon at the New York hospital, and from 185l till 1870 surgeon at the West Point foundry, Cold Spring, New York In the latter year he removed to New York on being appointed to the chair of gynecology and diseases of children at the University of the city of New York. He was also assistant surgeon to the Woman's hospital of the state of New York, surgeon to St. Mary's hospital for sick children, New York city, and consulting surgeon to the New York free dispensary for sick children. After a year's arduous service he returned to Cold Spring, where he practised until failing health compelled him to reside during the remainder of his life at Palatka, Florida, in the winter, and in the summer at Saratoga Springs. Dr. Lente was an unusually prolific writer on medical subjects, but his contributions to the press have never been collected and published in book-form. He was a member of various professional societies, many of which elected him to office, a founder of the American academy of medicine, a manager of the Hudson giver state hospital, and a member of the American public health association, before which he often read papers.
