Daniel Drake arrived in pioneer Cincinnati, a city of 750 people, at the age of fifteen. He trained
as a physician and founded the Medical College of Ohio in Cincinnati, the oldest medical college west of the Allegheny Mountains which merged with the University of Cincinnati in 1896. A trailblazer in frontier medical care, Drake wrote about the natural habitat and diseases of the area and established early hospitals and infirmaries in Ohio. Drake believed in a great future for the city, and his 1815 book Picture of Cincinnati earned him a national reputation and encouraged more Ohio settlement.
