Psychology of James Rush
James Rush was born on March 15, 1786, in Philadelphia, the third of 13 children born to Benjamin Rush and Julia Stockton. From 1806 to 1809, he attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, and from 1809 to 1811, took his post-medical training at the University of Edinburg. James then went into private practice and taught, at the University of Pennsylvania, students of medicine in this early part of the nineteenth century. By 1819, he married Phoebe Ann Ridgway, daughter of millionaire Philadelphia merchant, James Ridgway (Bernstein 1974).
The leadership of Benjamin Rush as psychiatrist and politician has received considerable attention, particularly during the bicentennial celebration (Carlson and Wollock 1976). Less well known is his role as a father. This entry focuses on one of Rush’s children, his third son, James Rush, who made significant contributions to scientific thought in the mid-nineteenth century.
