Hopper, Dr. Henry A.


Dr. Henry A. Hopper, who was born August 8th, 1824, was graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New York City in 1847. His life was spent in Hackensack, where he became a prominent practitioner, and also identified himself with the best interests of the town. Like his father, he began practice when young, being only twenty-three years of age. He was one of the organizers and the first secretary of the Bergen County Medical Society, and was the organizer and president of the Hackensack Board of Health.

Dr. Hopper married Maria Colfax Ward, and three children survived him, one son and two daughters.

He was a member of the Second Reformed Church, to which he was greatly devoted. He died at the age of fifty-eight years.
