FOWLER, Samuel, physician, born near Newburg', New York, 30 October 1779; died in Franklin, New Jersey, 21 February 1844. He studied medicine in Philadelphia, and, after being licensed in 1800, began to practice in Hamburg, N.J. A few years later he removed to Franklin, where he subsequently resided, enjoying a high reputation on account of his scientific knowledge. He interested himself in politics, and represented his County in the upper branch of the New Jersey legislature, and also his state in congress, to which he was twice elected as a Jackson Democrat, serving from 2 December 1833, till 4 March 1837. As a mineralogist he held deservedly a high rank. He once owned the zinc mines in Franklin, and his descriptions of the minerals found in their vicinity, particularly the franklinite, said to have been named by him, led to the development of its metallurgy. He discovered the rare mineral, fowlerite. He contributed frequent descriptions of New Jersey minerals to scientific and other journals.
