McCLELLAND, James Henderson, surgeon, born in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, 20 May, 1845. His father, of the same name, came to this country from Ireland in 1816, took an active part in anti-slavery movements, and was the architect of many buildings in Pittsburg. The son was graduated at the Hahnelnann medical college of Philadelphia in 1867, and on his return to Pittsburg was appointed to the surgical staff of the newly established Homoeopathic medical and surgical hospital, which post he has since held. He organized the Anatomical society of Alleghany county, and was for several years its demonstrator and president. He became professor of surgery in the ***Itahnemann college, Philadelphia, in 1876. In 1885 he was appointed a member of the State board of health, and he has been reappointed for a term of six years. He has contributed much to various medical journals, including papers on "Hip-joint Amputations," "Bone Diseases," and "Excision of the Kidney," and wrote the article on" Diseases of the Kidneys" in the " System of Medicine" edited by Dr. Henry Arndt (Philadelphia, 1886).
