COX, Henry G., physician, born in Bermuda about 1819; died in New York City, 29 May, 1866. He received a thorough English and classical education, and, soon after attaining his majority, was elected to the legislature of the Bermuda islands. At the age of twenty-six he came to New York to pursue the study of medicine, was graduated in 1849 at the College of physicians and surgeons, and was immediately appointed house physician at Bellevue hospital, and subsequently to a place on the medical staff at Quarantine hospital, Staten Island. In 1860 he settled in private practice in the City, and received also the appointment of physician to the State hospital on Ward's island, an office that he held for many years. On the organization of the New York medical College in 1850, he was appointed censor, and afterward to its professorship of theory and practice. Dr. Cox took an enthusiastic interest in the organization of the Nursery and child's hospital, incorporated in 1854, and to his watchfulness in its earlier years is due much of the usefulness of the institution. A few months before his death the commissioners of hospitals appointed him principal consulting physician.
