Biographical Note

Dr. Samuel A. Harrison was born October 10, 1822, at Clay's Hope farm in Talbot County, Maryland located on the Tred-Avon River. Harrison graduated from Dickinson College in 1840, and went on to enter the University of Maryland Medical School. In 1844 he received his diploma and began practicing medicine in St. Michael's, Maryland. Due to poor health he moved to St. Louis, Missouri and engaged in the druggist business. 

In 1854 he returned to Talbot County where he lived out his life, devoted to agricultural and literary pursuits.

He became President of the County School Board and the Superintendent of Public Schools in Talbot County, while engaged in the ongoing project of writing a critical history of Talbot County. Dr. Harrison died in 1890 at the age of 68, at his son-in-law's residence, Foxley Hall, in Easton, Maryland.

Note: The Contents of MS. 432.1 seem to indicate that Samuel Harrison lived in Baltimore, Maryland during, at least, a portion of the Civil War.
