Dr. Calvin Skinner, one of the best known men in Northern New York, died yesterday at his home in Malone. Dr. Skinner was born in Royalton, Vt., May 20, 1818. He was a graduate of the University of Vermont, and Dartmouth College, taking his medical degree at Dartmouth, where he was a classmate of the late Henry J. Raymond, Editor of the New York Times. Dr. Skinner was an enthusiastic Republican, being associated with his close friend, the late Vice President William A. Wheeler in the organization of the party in Franklin County.

In 1860 Dr. Skinner was an alternate delegate to the Chicago Convention which nominated Abraham Lincoln for the Presidency, and when the war broke out he enlisted as surgeon in the106th New York Volunteers. In 1884 he took a prominent part in founding the Northern New York Deaf, Mute Institution, and acted as a trustee and surgeon for many years.
