Samuel Crumpe

Crumpe, Samuel, M.D., a Limerick physician, born in 1766, was the author of a work upon opium, published in 1793. He gained a prize from the Royal Irish Academy for his Essay on the Means of Providing Employment for the People, also published in 1793. M'Culloch styles this "A really valuable production. . . The principles which pervade the work are sound; and those parts of it which have special reference to Ireland are distinguished by the absence of prejudice, and by their practical good sense." He died in 1796.
