Immediately after graduating, in the Fall of 1864, he began teaching school at
South Royalton, Vermont, where he remained until March, 1865, when he received and
accepted an appointment in the office of the Secretary of the Treasury, Washington, D.
C. While thus engaged, he commenced the study of medicine under the instruction of J.
H. Baxter, M.D., Chief Medical Purveyor, U. S. A. He attended lectures and graduated
at Georgetown Medical College in 1868, and immediately commenced the practice of his
profession at Washington, D. C. In the Fall and Winter of 1869-70, he attended lectures
and clinics at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and also at Bellevue Medical
College, New York City. In April, 1873, he was appointed a clerk in the office of the
Director of the Mint, at Washington, D. C., which position he has held continuously until
the present time. He continued to practice medicine, mostly out of his office-hours at the
Treasury and the Mint, until the Winter of 1877, when he was obliged to relinquish a
growing and lucrative practice on account of ill health. He continued his duties, however,
in the Mint until October 10, 1882, when he returned to his old home at Royalton,
Vermont, for a season of rest and recuperation. At last accounts he was gaining in
strength, and expects to return to Washington, D. C., as soon as his health will permit.
He is a Congregationalist in his religious views. In politics, he is a Republican.
He has never married.
