Excerpt from A Treatise on Medical JurisprudenceDr. Moreton Stille was born in Philadelphia, on October 27th, 1822, and after having gone through a preliminary course at the Edgehill Semi nary, at Princeton, entered the Department of Arts of the University of Pennsylvania in 1838, and graduated on July 15th, 1841. He immedi ately began his professional studies in the Office of his brother, Dr. Alfred Stille, to whose training and instruction he became so greatly indebted, and in the Spring of 1844 he received from the Medical School of the same University the degree of Doctor of Medicine, his thesis, on Cyanosis, having obtained the rare compliment of having been called for by the Faculty for publication. In October, 1844, he embarked for Liverpool, from November 1844, to March 1845, was engaged in attendance upon the hospitals and schools in Dublin and was employed in the same duties from March 1845, to September, in London, and from September 1845, to March 1846, in Paris. After travelling for some time, he visited Vi enna, where he was Occupied in study from October 1846, to April 1847, and finally returned to Philadelphia in the fall of 1847, when he entered at once into practice. In the summer of 1848 he became a candidate for and was elected to the post of resident physician at the Pennsylvania Hospital, where he continued until April 1849, and it is no slight evi dence of the zeal with which he pursued his profession, and the generous and self-denying Spirit by which he was actuated, that in the succeed ing summer, upon the appearance of the cholera in a malignant type at the Blockley Hospital, he volunteered to attend at that institution, and remained there until he was himself attacked and prostrated by the epidemic. Perhaps, indeed, even in a profession whose history has been so marked by acts of zeal and of disinterestedness, When we take into consideration the fact that Dr. Stille was impelled by no other motive than that of professional love and enterprise in the severe course of study and self-sacrifice in which he was engaged, there will be found few cases Where these qualities have been so eminently ex hibited as the present. Possessed of an ample fortune, he was one of those uncommon instances in which the most arduous and protracted courses of preliminary trial are gone through with under the calm and equal effect of a will which is impelled neither by necessity nor the desire of present applause, but by the faith in a distant future, in which the result will be none the less precious because it is the longer delayed.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
