Biography of Dr. Samuel G. Dorr


Dorr, Samuel G., M. D., Buffalo, was born at Dansville, N. Y., May 30, 1840, and received a liberal education at Nunda (N. Y.) Academy and at the Albion State Academy in Wisconsin. Upon his graduation from the latter institution he returned to New York State and ran a flour mill at South Dansville, which he had bought of his father. When the call to arms was heard Dr. Dorr enlisted within forty hours thereafter. Unfortunately he was prevented from going to the front by an attack of diphtheria, which left him an invalid for a year. In 1863 he was appointed by Governor Seymour recruiting agent for half of Livingston county, a position in which he rendered valuable service during the rest of the war. After the war he removed to Buffalo and began the study of medicine and was graduated from the University of Buffalo in 1875. No physician is better known or more highly esteemed in the neighborhood in which he lives than Dr. Dorr. He is a member of all the leading medical societies in the State and for years has been a consulting physician at one of Buffalo's leading hospitals. He was police surgeon during the administrations of Mayors Alexander Brush and Grover Cleveland, and was a member of the Board of Supervisors of Erie county for two years.
