GREEN, Horace, physician, born in Crittenden, Rutland County, Vermont, 24 December 1802; died in Sing Sing, New York, 29 November, 1866. He was educated at the high school at Brandon and the classical school of Rutland, Vermont, and in 1824 was graduated in medicine in Middlebury. He began practice in Rutland, and after several years went abroad, and studied in the hospitals of Edinburgh, London, and Paris, making a specialty of the diseases of the throat and air-passages. He was elected, on his return, to the chair of these diseases in the Medical College of Castleton, Vermont, and remained there until his removal to New York City in 1850. He revisited the hospitals in Paris in 1851, and on his return was elected to the chair of the theory and practice of medicine in the New York medical College. He assisted in establishing the "American Medical Monthly " in 1854, and became one of its editors. His health failing in 1860, he resigned his professorship and went to Cuba, dying of a lingering pulmonary disease. The degree of LL.D. was conferred on him by the University of Vermont. His works are "A Treatise on the Diseases of the Air-Passages" (New York, 1846); "Pathology and Treatment of Croup " (1849) ; " Surgical Treatmeat of the Polypi of the Larynx" (1852); "Report of a Hundred Cases of Pulmonary Diseases" (1858) ; and "Selections from the Favorite Prescriptions of Living American Physicians" (1858).
