The Homeopathic Medical College of the State of New York opened in 1860 near Union Square in New York City.  At a ceremony in the Historical Society on Second Avenue, twenty-seven men formed the first graduating class.  The majority were from New York but there were a number of Canadians, as well as three Georgians and several other Southerners.  One student was from Italy. The College is still in operation as New York Medical College. (By John Osborne)
