1883 Sickness - Newspaper Clippings
Though these articles lead one to believe that Dr. Joseph H. Warren knew Chamberlain during the war,
it is more likely that their Bowdoin connections brought them together.
Warren graduated Bowdoin Medical School in 1853. During the war he was President Lincoln's
private physician before becoming medical director of Gen. Casey's Division of Provisional troops 2nd Corps (later part of the 4th Corps).
He resigned after the Battle of Yorktown. He became vice president of the AMA 1889 - 90.
He published several papers and demonstrated his hernia method before Guy's Hospital in London.1
He wintered in Florida for his health and while there published several local newspapers and medical magazines.
He died in 1891.2
