Benjamin Waterhouse, 1754-1846
[Mentioned in Science and Health, p. 163, and in "The People's Idea of God," p. 6]
Dr. Waterhouse was an American pioneer in the fields of medicine and education. After attending with Gilbert Stuart a school in Newport, founded by Dean Berkeley, Dr. Waterhouse continued his education in London and Edinburgh under renowned physicians and finished by going to the University of Leyden, then the most celebrated medical school in the world. While at Leyden, he lived with John Adams, the American minister, and the two were lifelong friends. Following his return from abroad, Dr. Waterhouse was asked by Harvard University to help establish a medical school. Besides being a professor at the Medical School, he inaugurated the study of natural science by giving a yearly series of lectures laying special emphasis on mineralogy and botany.
Dr. Waterhouse strove to keep in touch with the "best that was taking place in the centers of European learning," and "his breadth of mind prepared the way for the advent of Cray and Agassiz."
