BIOGRAPHY

Dr. A. T. Woodward, father of Dr. Julius Hayden Woodward, was born at Castleton, Vermont, July 17, 1827. He graduated from Castleton Seminary in 1845, Castleton Medical College in 1847, the age of twenty years. He has thus at the present time been in the active practice of medicine more than fifty-five years. Not unlike his father, he was for many years a leading surgeon of the state, and his clientele also extended all over northern New York as well. He was for four years located at Whitehall, New York. He was later connected with the Albany Hospital, and at the same time held the chair as demonstrator of anatomy in the Albany Medical College. He was subsequently professor of obstetrics and diseases of women and children in the Castleton Medical College, until he removed to Brandon in 1860. He has been engaged in private practice at that place since that time. During this time he was for several years professor of surgical diseases of women in the University of Vermont, and consulting surgeon at the Mary Fletcher Hospital at Burlington. He was surgeon of the Fourteenth Regiment, Vermont Volunteers, in the Civil war, and saw service at the battle of Gettysburg, Spotsylvania Court House and the Wilderness. He was part of the time a member of the state examining board of volunteer surgeons.

Dr. Woodward is a member of the Vermont State Medical Society, the Rutland County Medical Society and the American Medical Association. He has written numerous papers and pamphlets, many of which have been published. Fraternally he is a member of the Masons and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Grand Army of the Republic and the Loyal Legion.

Dr. Woodward married Miss Martha Chapin, of Whitehall, New York, and they became the parents of two children, both of whom are deceased. His wife dying in 1853, at the age of twenty-six years, he married for his second wife Lois C. June, a daughter of Milton June, of Brandon, Vermont. Of this union were born two children: Julius Hayden; and Irving, who died at the age of nine years.
