The Philadelphia physician James Mease (1771-1846) published articles contributing to medical knowledge. He served as a surgeon during the War of 1812. Mease's contributions to other fields, including numismatics and geology, are of even more significance than his writings on the subject of medicine. He is perhaps best known for his "Geological Account of the United States" (1807), a pioneering work on he subject and the first such treatise by an American. Mease served as an officer of the American Philosophical Society from 1824-1836 and was a founder and first vice- president of the Philadelphia Athenaeum.
