Dr. Benjamin Rush (1745-1813) a physician � He signed the Declaration of Independence. � Served as a surgeon in the Revolutionary War. � A friend of Thomas Paine. � Chicago�s Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke�s Medical Center was named in his honor. �

It's my understanding that actress Barbara Rush is a descendant of Dr. Thomas Rush.
