CARTWRIGHT, Samuel Adolphus, physician, born in Fairfax county, Virginia, 30 November, 179;3; died in Jackson, Mississippi, 2 May, 1868. He studied medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and began practice in Huntsville, Alabama, but removed to Natchez, Mississippi, where he labored for more than a quarter of a century, and served at one time under General Jackson as surgeon. Dr. Cartwright removed to New Orleans in 1848, and in 1862 was appointed to improve the sanitary condition of the confederate soldiers near Port Hudson and Vicksburg, and while discharging this duty he contracted the disease that caused his death. He contributed largely to medical literature, and received several medals and prizes for his investigations, especially those on yellow fever, cholera infantum, and Asiatic cholera. Some of his methods of treatment are now in use in the army and in hospitals.
