Some of Boston's leading medical practioners were brought together for this daguerreotype. According to Moore (1975), the doctors can be identified as: seated (left to right), Solomon Davis Townsend (1793-1869), Edward Reynolds (1793-1881), David Osgood (died 1863), John Ware (1795-1864), Jacob Bigelow (1787-1879), and Walter Channing (1786-1876); and standing (left to right), Ggeorge Hayward (1791-1863), David Humpherys Storer (1804-1891), Horatio Adams (1801-1861), James Jackson (1777-1867), Charles Gideon Putnam (1805-1875), and John Homans (1793-1868). Individual portraits of many of these sitters can be found elsewhere in this catalouge (Young America), along with their biographies.
