LUNGREN, Samuel Smith, physician, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 22 August, 1827. He was graduated at Jefferson medical college in 1850, and at the Homoeopathic medical college of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, in 1852. Subsequently he settled in Toledo, Ohio, where he has practised medicine and surgery, making a specialty of the diseases of women. His greatest success has been with the Caesarean section, which he has performed with favorable issue on three occasions, and but twelve operations of that nature have ever been performed in Ohio. His most celebrated case is one in which the section was performed originally in 1875, and again on the same person in 1880. The woman and her two children are now (1887) living and in good health. Dr. Lungren has contributed numerous articles to the medical press, and is the author of a memoir on the "Caesarean Section" (Toledo, 1881).--His son, Charles Marshall, inventor, born in Hagerstown, Maryland, 13 December, 1853, was graduated at the University of Michigan in 1874 as a civil engineer. He first turned his attention to journalistic work, and for some time was a member of the staff of the " Popular Science Monthly." Mr. Lungren has studied the problems connected with artificial illumination, and has invented several appliances theft have come into extended use, notably a regenerative gas-lamp. He is a member of scientific societies, and, besides writing magazine articles, has edited the American edition of Alglave and Boulard's "Electric Light" (New York, 1883).--Another son. Ferdinand Harvey, artist, born in Toledo, Ohio, 13 November, 1857, studied at the University of Michigan, but came to New York before his graduation, in order to follow art. He has made many illustrations, principally for the "Century" and " Wide Awake," and his paintings include" Shadows on the Snow."
