About the author:
Ernest A. Farrington (1847-1885)
E. A. Farrington was born in New York, United States, on January 1, 1847. Apparently his capacity for study was noted from early on and his perspicacity and prodigious memory were in evidence during his school years. Upon graduating from the Philadelphia High School Farrington had achieved the highest marks known within the institute. It was in 1866 that he graduated from the Homoeopathic Medical College of Pennsylvania and one year after that he began his further studies at the Hahnemann Medical College. Later he became a close associate of Hering.
Dr. Farrington's mind was given to profound research in many areas of homeopathy. However, his main drive was to be found in the study of materia medica and he undertook supervised provings. The acuity of Farrington's mind is brought to light when we consider the growing contemporary interest in studying homeopathic materia medica within the context of families and kingdoms. It was Farrington, a real 'family man' who originally put forward the concept and even published a book on comparative materia medica based on the kingdoms.
