Excerpt from The Dandridge Volume: Being a Series of Papers Presented at Various Times in the Meetings of the Cincinnati Research Society and Dedicated by It to the Memory of Its Distinguished Member Nathaniel Pendleton Dandridge
Dr. Nathaniel Pendleton Dandridge received his elementary education in a private school in Cincinnati, and later entered Kenyon College, Gambier, Q, from which he was graduated with the class of 1866. The scholastic year of 1866-67 was spent as a student in the Medical College of Ohio. In the summer of 1867 he went abroad, where he studied medicine in Paris in 1867-68 and in Vienna in 1868-69. At that time these were the most famous medical schools in the world. Returning to the United States with what was at that period much more than an ordinary medical education, Dr. Dandridge entered the College of Physi cians and Surgeons of New York, and, after taking the winter course of 1869 - 70, received his degree of Doctor of Medicine from that institution.
Returning to his home in Cincinnati, in 1872, he was appointed pathologist to the Cincinnati Hospital, a position which he held for eight years, during which time he taught pathology as he had learned it from the lips of the great masters in Paris and Vienna, and enriched the museum of the hospital with many specimens intelligently and carefully prepared by his own hands. This appointment, coming so soon after his pathological and clinical studies abroad, laid a sure and broad foundation for that remark ably comprehensive knowledge oi general surgery which later brought the profound admiration and respect of his colleagues and the profession at large.
