Worthington Hooker, M.D. (1806-1867), b. Springfield, MA; d. New Haven, CT. "He pursued his medical studies in Philadelphia and Cambridge, receiving the degree of M. D. from Harvard College in 1829. He was engaged in the practice of his profession in Norwich, Conn., until 1852, when he was chosen to the professorship of the Theory and Practice of Medicine in this College [Yale], made vacant by the resignation of Dr. Eli Ives. In addition to the duties of his professorship, which he held until his death, and his professional practice, Dr. Hooker performed a large amount of literary labor, his publications amounting to about a dozen volumes. His "Physician and Patient" appeared in 1849. "Medical Delusions" and "Homeopathy," both prize dissertations, in 1850 and 1851, followed by several elementary works in Physiology, Natural History, &c., designed chiefly as text books. He was also a frequent contributor to periodical literature." - Obituary Record of the Graduates of Yale College (1868).
