Thomas Dwight was born on October 13, 1843 in Boston, Massachusetts.[1] His father was also named Thomas Dwight (born September 27, 1807), part of the New England Dwight family. His mother was Mary Collins Warren, whose father John Collins Warren (1778 –1856), and grandfather John Warren (1753–1815) were both surgeons.[2]

Dwight joined the Catholic Church in 1856, and graduated from the Harvard Medical School in 1867. After studying abroad, he was instructor in comparative anatomy at Harvard College, 1872–1873, he also lectured at Bowdoin College. He succeeded Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. as Parkman professor of anatomy at Harvard Medical School in 1883. In the Warren Museum of Anatomy at Harvard, Dwight arranged a section of osteology, considered one of the best in existence, and he had an international reputation as an anatomist.[3] Among his writings are: "Frozen Sections of a Child" (1872); "Clinical Atlas of Variations of the Bones of the Hands and Feet" (1907); "Thoughts of a Catholic Anatomist" (1911),[4] a valuable work of Christian apologetics.[5]

Dwight died September 8, 1911 in Nahant, Massachusetts, at age 68.[6][7]
