Biography of J. Henry Dowd


Dowd, J. Henry, M. D., Buffalo, was born in Batavia, N. Y., July 26, 1865. His early education was received in the public and private schools of that city. Entering the employ of the N. Y. C. & H. R. Railroad Company as a telegraph messenger, he soon mastered the art of telegraphy, filling several important offices as operator, the last being in the office of George H. Burrows, superintendent of the road. Resigning, he commenced the study of medicine, graduating in 1890 and at once entering the United States Marine, and Sisters' Hospitals as house surgeon, where he remained a little over a year. For the first five years his work was devoted to general practice. Seeing the steady drift towards specialism, after a protracted course of study in New York and Philadelphia, he limited his practice to genito urinary surgery, with office at 206 Franklin street. He is a charter member of the Buffalo Academy of Medicine, member of the Erie County and Central New York State Associations, Physicians' Club, etc. For three years he served as surgeon to the Niagara University Dispensary. He has contributed several articles in relation to his special line of work, and also brought out two or three valuable instruments as aids in diagnosis.
