The highlights of Dr. Arthur Middleton's life are best described in a memorial of the S. C. Medical Society of which he was a member. It reads in part as follows:

"A gentleman by birth and education, all the instincts of his nature were high and honorable: as a member of our profession he was above reproach and we gladly unite in adding our testimony both to his high character and to his professional attainments. He attended a course of lectures in the Medical College in this city and graduated in Philadelphia in 1850. Practicing some years, he prepared himself With great care for admission into the United States Navy, and entered that service with great distinction, at a time when requirements were high and such positions much sought after. Your Committee has seen testimoniable from Surgeon Barrington of the Naval hoard of examiners and from Commodore G. W. Pages as to the high standing and the estimation in which Dr. Lynah stood. Our late Colleague had the honor of serving throughout the expedition to Japan, under Commodore Perry, Cruising for three years around China and Japan, and we can imagine the varied and valuable experience a man of culture and refinement must have acquired under such circumstances. He also assisted in laying the Atlantic Cable in the Niagara and served in the Cholera hospital in Philadelphia during the epidemic prevalence of that disease. The subject of our notice entered the Confederate service at the beginning of the war under Commodore Ingraham, and was attached to the Iron-Clad gun-boats "Chicora" and "Palmetto State" stationed in this harbor. After the war Dr. Lynah was or sometime associated in the drug business with Dr. Roul. He practiced his profession with much success on Sullivans' Island until more recently when he entered into partnership with our venerable and esteemed associate Dr. T. L. Ogier. Our friend was a man of the most genial and attractive manners of great amiability and devoted to his family by whom he was greatly beloved, he was over zealous, if this be possible in his attentions to his patients often sacrificing his health and strength in remaining night and day with the humblest of the sick and needy, whenever by so doing he could rescue them from their peril. His funeral services were largely attended by every class of his fellow citizens and a striking tribute was thus paid to his Memory."
