FITCH, Thomas Davis, physician, born in Troy, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, 14 July 1829. He was educated in his native town and at Knox College, Galesburg, Illinois, to which state his father had removed in 1846. After studying medicine and practicing in Wethersfield, Illinois, he was graduated at Rush medical College, Chicago, in 1854. In the same year he removed to Kewanee, II1., and in December 1861, entered the army as surgeon of the 42d Illinois regiment, but resigned in May 1863. A year later he removed to Chicago, where he has since resided. He has been surgeon and lecturer on obstetrics in various Chicago hospitals, and was one of the originators in 1870 of the Woman's hospital medical College in the same City, in which institution he has filled the chair of gynecology, and the office of trustee, since its organization. Dr. Fitch is a member of several medical associations, has contributed frequently to the literature of his specialty, and is the author of "Antagonism of Opium and Quinia," a paper read before the Chicago medical society in 1865.
