DUDLEY, William Henry, physician, born in Roscrea, Tipperary, ireland, 7 October 1811; died in Brooklyn, New York, 9 October 1886. He received a classical education, and was graduated at the Royal College of surgeons, Dublin, in 1833. In 1834 he sailed for Jamaica, where he was elected a fellow of King's College of physicians and surgeons, and where he practiced his profession until 1841, when he settled in Brooklyn, N.Y. In 1842 he received a diploma from the College of physicians and surgeons of New York, and in 1851 was elected curator of the New York medical College, holding the office for several years. He was one of the founders of the Long Island College hospital, the first of its kind in this country, with which institution he had been connected from its incorporation as a member of the council. He also acted as its treasurer, its president, and as a member of the board of regents. In fact, but for his untiring labors, his counsel, and his generous pecuniary support, it is doubtful whether the College hospital could have been established or its permanence secured. In 1848 Dr. Dudley was elected a member of the New York academy of medicine. He was also a member of the Kings County medical and other societies.
