Century Memorial

George Montgomery Tuttle, an esteemed member of a noble profession, was in his specialty, gynecology, surpassed by none. He had been at some time in his career, physician-in-chief of the New York State Emigrant Hospital, attending physician at Bellevue, Professor of Gynecology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, attending gynecologist at Roosevelt Hospital, and president of its medical board. Those who knew him know, what words cannot adequately convey, that this beloved physician was an ennobling influence among his brethren and a benediction to the patient who had the good fortune to be cared for by him.
