One of the representative and rising young physicians of Utica is Dr. Vaughn Webster Dutton, who has been engaged in the general practice of medicine and surgery in this city since the 1st of May, 1919. He was born in Burlington Flats, Otsego county, New York, on the 22nd of September, 1894, his parents being Henry Herbert and Lulu (Webster) Dutton of that place, where the father is a successful merchant.

In the acquirement of an education Vaughn Webster Dutton attended the grade schools of Burlington Flats, the high school at Edmeston, Otsego county, and for one year was a student in Colgate University. He next entered Syracuse University, from which institution he received the degree of Bachelor of Science in 1915 and that of M. D. in 1917. Following the completion of his medical course he spent one year as interne in the City Hospital of Newark, New Jersey. In March, 1918, he was commissioned first lieutenant in the Reserve and on the 1st of August following he entered into active military service, being attached to the Medical Corps at Camp Greenleaf until discharged on the 19th of December, 1918.

It was on the 1st of May, 1919, that Dr. Dutton began the work of his chosen profession in Utica, where he has remained and is fast building up a practice of large and remunerative proportions. Each case that comes before him receives his earnest attention and his patronage has steadily grown in volume and importance as he has demonstrated his skill in checking the ravages of disease and restoring health. Dr. Dutton is physician to the Oneida county jail and is also on the staff of Faxton Hospital, the General Hospital, the Oneida Baby Welfare and the Utica Free Dispensary. He has membership connection with the Oneida County Medical Society and the New York State Medical Society.

Fraternally Dr. Dutton is identified with Faxton Lodge of Masons and he also belongs to the Republican Club. In the practice of his profession and in every relation of life he has exemplified the highest principles of manhood and chivalry.
