Francis Delafield (1841-1915) was an American physician, born in New York City. His father, Dr. Edward Delafield, was the son of the prominent John Delafield who had emigrated to America from London, England in 1783 carrying the provisional peace treaty between England and The United States. While his father Edward graduated Yale in 1812, Francis graduated at Yale (1860) and at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University (1863), and after further study abroad practiced medicine in New York.

 

Francis was appointed to the staff of Bellevue Hospital (1874), and to the chair of pathology and practice of medicine in the College of Physicians and Surgeons (1875-82). Francis Delafield resided for many years at 5 West 50th Street in Manhattan, New York.[1]
 

In 1886, Francis was the first president of the Association of American Physicians. Over his life, Francis illustrated and published:
Handbook of Post-Mortem Examinations and Morbid Anatomy; Lectures on Practical Medicine and Pathology (1872; new edition, 1903)
Handbook of Pathological Anatomy and Histology (1885; new edition, 1904), with Prudden
