He is a son of William and Hannah (Casey) Delaney, both natives of Pennsylvania. In the family there were twelve children, of whom the Doctor is the seventh. He was educated at Notre Dame, South Bend, Ind., where he was graduated in the class of 1883. He immediately entered the Bellevue Hospital, New York, and was graduated from that institution in 1886, with the degree of M. D. He came to Erie, where he engaged in the general prac­tice of medicine until 1890, when he went to Europe and took a special course on the treatment of the diseases of the eye, ear, nose and throat. When he re­turned to New York he practiced his specialties one year as assistant to the celebrated Dr. Knapp of that city. At the same time he took an additional course in his specialty in New York, and graduated in 1892. He then came to Erie, where he has since built up a large and lucrative practice in the specialty for which he has so thoroughly qualified himself. The Doctor is a member of the Erie County Medical Society and a member of the Catholic Church.
