Excerpt from Memoir of Wm; O. Baldwin, M.D., Of Montgomery, Ala United States Senator, which position he resigned when Ala bama passed the ordinance of secession. William Baldwin's eldest son, Marion Augustus Baldwin, was born in Georgia, and removed with his parents into Alabama in 1816; he was attorney-general of Alabama from 1847 to 1865, and one of the ablest lawyers as well as the most popular man in the State. His father died when Dr. Baldwin was nine years of age,-leaving his widow with seven children, of whom he was the second son he received his education at an academy in Montgomery county, near his mother's plantation, conducted by Adison H. Sample, a man of great reputation in his day, a splendid linguist and a finished scholar. At sixteen be commenced to read medicine in the office of Dr. Mcleod, the leading physician in Montgomery, and shortly afterwards entered the Transylvania University, Lexington, Ky., in which institution he became the private pupil of Dr. Charles Caldwell and Dr. L. P. Yandell, then in conjunction with the eminent surgeon and lithotomist, Dr. B. W. Dudley, pro fessors in that university. At the unprecedented age of eighteen, he received his degree of M. D., a fact much regretted in after life when the importance of more extended study was more vividly realized. Some years afterwards, disagreements having arisen between the members of the faculty, the professors, with but few excep tions, resigned and established the Medical Department of the University of Louisville, and the Transylvania University became extinct. His mother having so large a family to raise unaided, was somewhat cramped in her resources, and found it impossible to give more than one of her sons a university education, and to that the elder brother was naturally enti tled. William, however, had all but completed his arrange ments to enter the University of Virginia, when the want of adequate means interposed an obstacle which it was impos sible to overcome. In 1837 he commenced the practice of his profession in Montgomery, and in 1840 entered into partnership with his former preceptor, Dr. Mcleod, who died twelve months afterwards. Becoming on intimate terms with the distinguished Professor of Obstetrics, Dr. William M. Boling, a strong personal attachment sprung up betweenthem, and after occupying the same office for some years, they formed a professional copartnership in 1848, which con tinned in force for four years, when their practice became so extensive that it was deemed best for their individual peen niary interests, in the matter of consultations, etc., to sepa rate, and the partnership was accordingly dissolved. Dr. Boling was a man of great learning, and perhaps of more sterling merit than any Alabama has produced. Dr. Baldwin and himself studied and labored together for eleven years for the advancement of science, and he afterwards became Pro fessor in Transylvania University, and subsequently at Mem phis. At his death, in 1859, Dr. Baldwin delivered a touch ing eulogy over the grave of this noble and erudite physician.

Oliver Sacks died in August 2015 at his home in Greenwich Village, surrounded by his close friends and family. He was 82. He spent his final days doing what he loved: playing the piano, swimming, enjoying smoked salmon - and writing.§§As Dr Sacks looked back over his long, adventurous life his final thoughts were of gratitude. In a series of remarkable, beautifully written and uplifting meditations, Dr Sacks reflects on and gives thanks for a life well lived, and expresses his thoughts on growing old, facing terminal cancer and reaching the end.§§I cannot pretend I am without fear. But my predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved; I have been given much and I have given something in return; I have read and travelled and thought and written. I have had an intercourse with the world, the special intercourse of writers and readers. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure.§§Oliver Sacks was a physician and the bestselling author of many books, including Hallucinations, Musicophilia, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, and Awakenings (which inspired the Oscar-nominated film). He lived in New York City, where he was a professor of neurology at the NYU School of Medicine. In 2008, he was appointed Commander of the British Empire.§
