Young, a physician of some eminence, who had been a surgeon in the Continental army. He remained with him as a student for five years. Meanwhile he employed in engraving every moment that he could spare from the duties of his professional studies and labors. He became so expert that, while he was yet a medical student, he was employed by all the publishers in New York, and by Dr.

Mitchill- Phillip Freneau, the poet of the Revolution- Hugh Gaine, the veteran newspaper publisher, and others. His earliest employers as an illustrator of books were William Durell and Evert Duyckinck.Anderson was licensed to practice medicine in the spring of 1795. Dr. Young offered him a partnership in his business, but the offer was not accepted.

At the close of the summer of that year the yellow fever prevailed in New York as an epidemic, and young Anderson was employed by the Commissioners of Health, composed of leading citizens, as resident physician of Bellevue Hospital, on the East River. For three months he performed his duties there with great skill, and was then offered the post of physician to the Dispensary, which he declined.Andersons extreme conscientiousness and his love of art impelled him to abandon the practice of medicine.

He pursued it, however, until late in 1798, when the yellow fever again prevailed in New York. He was again, for a short time, resident physician at Bellevue.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
