NICHOLS, Mary Sargeant Gore, physician, born in Goffstown, New Hampshire, 10 August, 1810. After her marriage with her first husband, whose name was Gore, she taught for several years in Lynn, Massachusetts, where she began a course of lectures on anatomy and hygiene, subsequently delivering a similar course in the New England and middle states. She began to contribute papers on hygiene to the "Democratic Review" and "Godey's Lady's Book" in 1841, and in 1845 established a water-cure in New York, which she conducted successfully for many years. In 1848 she married Dr. Thomas L. Nichols, with whom she was associated in the water-cure establishment. She published "Lectures to Ladies on Anatomy and Physiology" (New York, 1840); "Experience in Water-Cure" (1859); and novelettes under the pen-name of "Mary Orne."
