  • Biographical / Historical Note
     

    Edward Beach Crowell was born 20 January 1830 to Nathaniel Pierce and Mary (Savage) Crowell in Chinquapin Hill, South Carolina. After taking a scientific course at Harvard, he graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York in 1853. He then went to Paris, France, where he engaged in the practice of medicine. A few years later he returned to New York City, but after finding the medical profession unfriendly, Crowell decided to study law. He became a member of the firm of Chapman, Scott, and Crowell where he practiced until 1890. Crowell married Catherine Van Pelt and they had three children: Edward Jr., Harriett, and Nathalie. He died on 2 January 1916.
