CATHRALL, Isaac, physician, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1764; died 22 February, 1819. He studied medicine in London, Edinburgh, and Paris, returned home early in 1793, and was taken with yellow fever in that year; but, notwithstanding this, remained at his post, both at that time and during the prevalence of the disease from 1797 till 1799, when he even dissected the bodies of those who had died of the fever. He was a surgeon of the City almshouse from 1810 to 1816. He published "Remarks on the Yellow Fever" (1794); "Buchan's Domestic Medicine, with Notes " (1797); "Memoir on the Analysis of the Black Vomit" (1800, in vol. v. of the "Transactions of the American Philosophical Society"), and a pamphlet on yellow fever in conjunction with Dr. Currie (1802).
