WILLIAM JOSEPH SCHUYLER, M. D.
One of the successful representatives of the medical profession of Utica is Dr. William Joseph Schuyler, who has
been practicing in this city since 1889. He was born in Westmoreland, New York, on the 9th of July, 1861, being
a son of Joseph K. and Anne (Williams) Schuyler. In the paternal line Dr. Schuyler is a direct descendant of Johannes
Schuyler, who removed to Westmoreland from Albany and there his grandfather, Barent Ten Eyck, and father were also
The early education of Dr. William Joseph Schuyler was obtained in the schools of Westmoreland, the course he there
pursued being supplemented by further study in the public schools of Utica and private schools. Having decided
to become a physician he became a student under the direction of Dr. Willis E. Ford, of Utica, and subsequently
entered the medical department of the University of the City of New York, being awarded his degree in April, 1885
Immediately following his graduation he became a member of the staff of the Charity Hospital at Blackwell's Island
where he remained for eighteen months. At the expiration of that period he spent one year on the staff of the Bloomingdale
Asylum, going from there to the Butler Hospital for the Insane at Providence, Rhode Island, where he remained a
year. Feeling that theoretically and practically he was fully qualified to begin a private practice he came to
Utica in 1889 and established an office as a general practitioner. He was house surgeon at St. Luke's for several
years, and still continues on the staff of that institution as well as on that of the General Hospital, while he
is visiting physician to the House of the Good Shepherd, and from 1892 to 1894 he was health officer of the city.
Dr. Schuyler was married on the 31st of October, 1894, to Miss Emeline Watson Bowne of Westchester, New York, and
they have become the parents of the following children: Philip Van Rensselaer; Barent Ten Eyck; Katharine; and
Dr. Schuyler is a member of the Fort Schuyler Club and the Utica Medical Club, and he is also a member of the Oneida
County Medical Society, New York State and American Medical Associations, and the Utica Medical Library Association.
For more than twenty years Dr. Schuyler has been identified with the professional circles of this city, during
which time he has become recognized as a physician of more than average ability.
