DOCTOR EDWARD GALUSHA DYER
Born in Russia. New York pioneer settler of Burlington and its first doctor. He served his community during a period of forty years ministering to the sick at whatsoever distance or hour through all weathers and privations unsparing of himself and generous to all who were in distress or need. A staunch abolitionist he took part in the underground railroad, harboured the escaping slave on his way to freedom and shared the risks and dangers of those who espoused the cause of the American Anti-Slavery Society. Good neighbor, kind friend and wise counselor in Burlington’s earliest years. He was a beloved physician, a courageous and honored citizen.
