Biographical Notes

Edward Augustus Holyoke (1728-1829), A.B., 1746, Harvard College, Cambridge, Massachusetts, was a physician in Salem and the son of Harvard's ninth president, Edward Holyoke (1689-1769). He studied medicine under Thomas Berry (1695-1756) of Ipswich, Massachusetts, and once Holyoke's practice was established in Salem, he took on pupils including future Harvard Medical School professors John Collins Warren (1778-1856) and James Jackson (1777-1867). Holyoke was also the first president of the Massachusetts Medical Society from 1782 to 1784.
