BULKLEY, Henry Daggett, physician, born in New Haven, Connecticut, 20 April, 1803; died in New York City, 4 January, 1872. He was graduated at Yale in 1820, and spent several years in New York, engaged in business, after which he returned to New Haven and studied medicine under Dr. Knight, receiving his medical degree in 1830. He spent some time in the study of cutaneous diseases in the hospitals of Paris, and in November, 1832, settled in New York and devoted his attention principally to that specialty, in which he became a recognized authority. He delivered several courses of lectures on this subject in the College of physicians and surgeons, and was the first to establish a dispensary in New York for skin diseases. In 1848 he was appointed attending physician to the New York Hospital, a post which he occupied until his death. He was a member of medical societies and some time president of the New York County Medical Society and of the New York Academy of Medicine. Dr. Bulkley edited the American editions of Cazenave and Schedel's "Manual of Diseases of the Skin" (New York, 1846), and Gregory's "Eruptive Fevers" (1851).
