MORISON, Robert Brown, physician, born in Baltimore, Maryland, 13 March, 1851. He entered Harvard in 1869, but in 1871 went to Germany, where he studied medicine in Gottingen and in Berlin. He took his degree at the University of Maryland in 1874, and returned to Europe in 1883 to make a special study of dermatology in Vienna and Prague. In January, 1884, he began the practice of dermatology in Baltimore, being the first physician in that city to take up that specialty exclusively. He is a member of the American dermatological association and was its vice-president in 1886-'7. Dr. Morison has contributed several articles to "Buck's Reference handbook of the Medical Sciences" and to various medical journals in this country and in Germany, and he has also made original histological investigations. Since the incorporation of the Baltimore polyclinic and postgraduate medical school in 1883 he has held there the professorship of dermatology.
