Benjamin (1745–1813). American physician, born in Philadelphia, and educated at Princeton and the University of Edinburgh. He helped found the Philadelphia Dispensary in 1786, and was physician to Pennsylvania Hospital, where he introduced clinical instruction. Rush protested against improper treatment of the insane until the legislature made provision for construction of a ward for them at Pennsylvania Hospital. He served as a surgeon in the Continental Army, and with James Pemberton founded the first antislavery society in America. As a member of the Continental Congress, Rush was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and in 1787 he was a member of the Pennsylvania convention that adopted the Federal Constitution.
