Nott, Albert, 1847-1903

Albert Nott (1847-1903), one of the seven original faculty members of the Tufts College Medical School, served as the first professor of Physiology and first Dean of the Faculty for the school.

Born in Claremont, New Hampshire, in 1847, Nott attended the University of Vermont Medical School and received his medical degree in 1869. In 1875, he established a practice of medicine in West Newton, Massachusetts, which he continued for more than twenty years. When the Tufts College Medical School was established in 1893, the Trustees of Tufts College voted to appoint Nott to the first dean of the Faculty of the Medical School. He held the deanship and the position of professor of Physiology for three years. Nott was a Fellow of the Massachusetts Medical Society, a member of various fraternal organizations and president of the Newton Medical Club when it was first organized in 1898.

Nott had advocated for the expansion of the medical school's course of study from three years to four. He died on October 10, 1903.
