HENRY M. LYMAN, M. D.

 

Henry M. Lyman was born in Hawaii and graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1861. He moved to Chicago in 1863 and became Professor of Physiology and Nervous System Diseases at Rush Medical College in 1876. Allied closer to general medicine than psychiatry, Lyman authored Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Medicine (1892) and was instrumental in separating neurology from psychiatry in Chicago.

 

This eminent Chicago physician, whose fame as a practitioner, lecturer and author is co-extensive with the continents, is of English ancestry, and first saw the light in the (then) Kingdom of Hawaii, having been born at Hilo, November 26, 1835. The Lyman line may be traced, in an unbroken line, to the days of the Saxon Harold and the Earl Godwin. The first American progenitor of the family of whom any authentic record had been preserved .was named Richard Lyman, whom religious intolerance drove from the land of his birth in 1632. He crossed the Atlantic from Old to New England.
