BUCHANAN, Joseph Rhodes, physician, born in Frankfort, Kentucky, 11 December, 1814. He was graduated as Maryland at Louisville University in 1842, and in 1846 to 1856 was professor of physiology in the eclectic medical institute of Cincinnati. He was dean of the faculty from 1850 to 1855, and edited the medical journal connected with the institute. He was subsequently connected with similar Colleges in New York and Boston.
