LUDLAM, Reuben, physician, born in Camden, New Jersey, 7 October, 1831. He was graduated at the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania in 1852, and after studying in Europe began practice in Chicago, where he became widely known in the homoeopathic school, particularly as an ovariotomist, he has been connected with Hahnemann medical college and hospital since its organization in 1860, in which he assisted, and is now its dean and clinical professor of the surgical diseases of women. He was president of the American institute of homoeopathy in 1870, president of the Chicago academy of medicine in 1873, and for ten years preceding 1887 an active member of the Illinois board of health. Dr. Ludlam has published "Clinical Lectures on Diphtheria," the first strictly medical book issued in the northwestern states (Chicago, 1863); "Clinical and Didactic Lectures on the Diseases of Women" (1871), which was translated into French by Adrien Delahaye (Paris, 1879); and "Jousset's Clinical Medicine," translated from the French, with notes and additions (Chicago, 1879).
