"Doctor Rufus White Griswold was born in East Hartford, Connecticut, February 20, 1825, and died at Rocky Hill, August 17, 1902.

"He was educated in the common schools, and at the age fo seventeen entered the office of the Hartford Times as an apprentice, remaining there for six years. He then for two years published and edited The New England Gazette. He was afterwards engaged in the newspaper work in New York, at one time on the editorial staff of The Brooklyn Eagle. He began the study of medicine in 1850, and while following his studies found time to edit the Golden Dollar and the Empire City, and to contribute to the Brooklyn Morning Journal. He graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in March, 1854, when he returned to Connecticut and settled at Rocky Hill, where he continued an uninterrupted practice for forty-eight years, during the whole of which time he had been an active and prominent member of the Connecticut Medical Society. He held the offices of town clerk and acting school visitor for several years, and in 1883 represented his town in the legislature, where he was chairman of a committee on contingent expenses.

"In politics he was a republican, and while not a member of any church was a cordial supporter of the Congregational Ecclesiastical Society and was always interested in everything pertaining to its welfare, being for several years its treasurer. His tastes were literary, being more fond of books and historical research than promiscuous society. As a writer he was analytical, a thorough master of his subject, sharp and sometimes caustic in his criticism of what he believed to be medical fallacies.

"He was one of the organizers of this Society, having been admitted at the first meeting, held April 198, 1889, being number 46 on the roll of membership. He served for many years on the board of managers, of which he was a constant attendant, taking an active part in its discussions and projects. He was admitted to membership as a descendant of White Griswold of Windsor, Connecticut, who was a soldier participating in the invasion of Canada, afterwards with the 8th regiment, at the battle of Germantown, in New Jersey, where he was taken prisoner and died on board a prison ship in Philadelphia in 1777."3
