Park, Roswell, M. D., Buffalo.—This distinguished surgeon was born in Pomfret, Conn., in 1852. His ancestors on both sides were prominent in the Revolutionary war. Mr. Park received the degree of B. A. and M. A. from Racine College and was graduated from the Chicago Medical College in 1876. He was for a time interne in Mercy and Cook County Hospitals, Chicago, and afterward became demonstrator of anatomy in the Woman’s Medical College, and adjunct professor of anatomy in his alma mater. After three years he resigned to pursue his studies abroad and after his return from Europe he was appointed lecturer on surgery in Rush Medical College and surgeon of Michael Reese Hospital. In 1883 he was invited to become professor of surgery in the medical department of the University of Buffalo, and to become one of the surgeons of the Buffalo General Hospital; these positions he has since filled and now occupies. He has been a voluminous writer, and is a member  of numerous home and foreign societies. He has received honorary degrees of M. D. from the Lake Forest University, and A. M. from Harvard University. His practice is limited exclusively to surgery and both at home and abroad he is [a] recognized authority on surgical subjects.
