      From "History of Homeopathy" by Sylvain Cazalet:

      "STEVENS, ROLLIN HOWARD, Detroit, Michigan, was born in Blenheim, Ontario, Canada, January 7, 1868, son of Nathan H. and Ada J. (Burk) Stevens. After graduating from the high school at Chatham, Ontario, he spent one year in Toronto University. He studied in the homťopathic department of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, from 1886 until 1889, and in the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Ontario, Toronto, in 1889. He did post-graduate work in 1892, in Leland Stanford University, in California, and then located for general practice in Detroit. He was a post-graduate student in pathology in the University of Michigan in 1893, studied under Professor Finsen, in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1902-03, being the first American to spend any time with that celebrated specialist in the study of the Finsen light, and while abroad also studied in the hospitals at Berlin, Vienna, Hamburg and London, taking special work in Berlin and Hamburg, being under Dr. P. G. Unna, dermatologist, in the latter city. His practice is now limited to skin diseases. He was interne in Grace Hospital, Detroit, from 1889 to 1891, and is now visiting dermatologist. He is lecturer on dermatology in the homťopathic department of the University of Michigan, is president of the Detroit (Michigan) Homťopathic Practitioners' Society, and member of the American Institute of Homťopathy, the Homťopathic Medical Society of the State of Michigan, the American Roentgen Ray Society, the National Society of Physical Therapeutists, the Masons and Maccabees.
