    Notes 
    • Dr. Thomas Lathrop Stedman was born in 1853 in Cincinnati, OH.

      He attended Trinity Community College, graduated 1874 with an A.B. degree.  He attended College of Physicians and Surgeons (Columbia), graduated with an M.D. in 1877.  He did graduate studies at Trinity College for his A.M. degree (1896).

      He practiced medicine as a House Surgeon at St. Luke's Hospital (1876-1879) and Orthopaedic Hospital and Dispensary (1881-1886).

      His first published work - "Disease and Injuries of the Hand and Feet" .

      Dr. Thomas Lathtrop Stedman knew he was on to something when his radically different medical dictionary caused quite a stir in the publishing industry in 1911.

      But what he couldn't possibly know then was that, 27 editions and decades later, his revolutionary dictionary would form the foundation of an entire family of both print and electronic medical word resources used worldwide.

      Dr. Stedman enjoyed a prodigious career as a physician, author, and lexicographer in American medical literature. His Stedman's Medical Dictionary continues to stand as a testament to his mastery of and respect for the language of medicine and science.

      He died in 1938.
