Edward Griffin Bartlett, son of James and Lucy Bartlett, 
descended from the family of that name in Maine, "where 
for generations they have been farmers," was born at 
Portsmouth, N.H., January 31, 1824.  He fitted for college 
in the law office of Albert Hatch, Esq., and entered with the 
class.  After graduating, he went to New York, and was 
for a time a member of the Union Theological Seminary; but 
his health was not firm, and in 1849 he entered the New York 
University Medical School.  In 1850 he took his M.D., and 
entered at once into practice.  
In January, 1856, he removed to Madison, Wisc., resided 
there two and a half years, thereby acquiring a knowledge of 
the diseases of the West, and, he mirthfully adds, "having 
myself had one not put down in the books, 'land speculation fever,' which proved only fatal to the amount 
of money invested, as the bottom all fell out of the West in 1857."  
He returned soon after to New York, and succeeded in securing a lucrative practice in a few years as 
a homeopathic physician.  He has occasionally written for the medical journals.  His taste for painting 
he can gratify only to a limited degree.  His voice has lost none of its musical qualities.  He married 
Jane Ball, only daughter of Dr. A.S. Ball, of New York City on September 24, 1850.  They have 
had eight children, of whom the following survive: Jennie, born 1855; Willie, born 1859 (now at the 
school of our classmate, Lyon); Helen, born 1863; Lucy, born 1865; Mary, born 1859.  Dr. Bartlett 
is a member of the Broadway Tabernacle Church, Rev. J.P. Thompson, DD (Yale College 1838), 
pastor.  His residence is 43 West 11th Street, near 5th Avenue, New York.
