Isaac Buxton, M.D., was born in London, and was educated for a dissenting minister, in which capacity he officiated for a few years. Devoting himself, however, to medicine, he proceeded to Gottingen, where he studied for several years, and graduated doctor of medicine 12th April, 1802. He was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 25th June, 1805, and then settling in the city, soon obtained the confidence of a numerous party among dissenters. He was elected physician to the London hospital 9th June, 1807, and resigned that office in 1822. Dr. Buxton was the original proposer, and is regarded as the founder of the Infirmary for Asthma and Consumption, the first institution of the kind in this country. He died at Grosvenor-place, Camberwell, on the 1st July, 1825, and was buried in Bunhill-fields.

He was the author of-
An Essay on the use of a regulated Temperature in Winter Cough and Consumption. 12mo. Lond. 1810.
