Biography of Jared Hyde Tilden


Tilden, Jared Hyde, Buffalo, was born in Franklin, Conn., April 30, 1828. He removed to Buffalo with his parents in 1837, traversing Long Island Sound in a sloop, proceeding to Buffalo via the Hudson River and Erie Canal. His early education was obtained in the public and private schools of Buffalo, and he early evinced a desire to study medicine and subsequently entered the Eclectic Medical Institute at Cincinnati, Ohio, from which he received the degree of M. D. in the class of 1850. He then spent a few years as demonstrator of anatomy at the Central Medical College of Rochester, the hospitals of New York city and attending clinics in Cincinnati. In 1851 Dr. Tilden returned to Buffalo, and in 1854 was commissioned surgeon's mate of the 74th Regiment, N. G, S. N. Y., in which he continued for the following ten years. Dr. Tilden continued practice until 1859, when he gave up the profession to engage in the building business with his father, which was carried on successfully until the death of his father in 1869, and since that time he has conducted the business alone. Among the many noted structures erected by him may be mentioned the First Presbyterian church, Delaware Avenue Baptist church, Star Theater building, Union Central Life building, Red Jacket Flats and numerous dwellings. He is an active and prominent member of the Builders' Exchange, of the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy and the Buffalo Library. He is also a member of the Oakfield Club and trustee in the Central Presbyterian church.
