SOLOMON M. WHIPPLE, M. D., son of David Whipple, and great-grandson of Moses Whipple, one of the first settlers and original proprietors of the town, was born July 28, 1820. By the home-lamp, and a few terms at Unity and Lebanon Academies, he prepared to enter the collegiate department of Norwich University, where he graduated in 1846. He pursued his medical studies at Dartmouth College and at Woodstock Medical School, and graduated from the latter institution in 1849. The same year in which he graduated he commenced practice at New London, N. H., where he still resides, and where he is enjoying a full tide of successful business. The occasional contributions from his pen to some of the popular medical and political journals of the day, attest to his literary merit. Jan. 4, 1851, he was united in marriage to Miss Henrietta K. Hersey, daughter of Amos K. Hersey, Esq., of Sanbornton, N. H.
