The newly-elected President of the American Medical Association, Dr. John Allan Wyeth, is a southerner, having been born May 26, 1845, in Marshall County, Ala. His father was Judge Louis Wyeth of Alabama; his grandfather, John Wyeth, one of the early publishers of Philadelphia. His early education was received at the Lagrange Military Academy and during the civil war he served as a private soldier in the 4th Alabama Cavalry. Some of his experiences therein have served for subjects of his later literary work. His medical studies were carried on in the University of Louisville, and later at Bellevue Hospital Medical College, New York. After a brief period of practice in Alabama he removed to New York City, where he quickly became a prominent figure in the profession, taking almost at once a position on the teaching force of his alma mater, and also an active part in society proceedings
