Matthew Derbyshire Mann (1844–1921) was one of the physicians who attended President William McKinley after he had been shot by Leon Czolgosz.


He was born in Utica, New York, the son of State Senator Charles A. Mann (1803–1860) and Emma (Bagg) Mann (1813–1887). He graduated from Yale University in 1867, and from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1871. After two years' study in Heidelberg, Paris, Vienna and London, he practiced in New York until 1879, then in Hartford, Connecticut until 1882, and thereafter until 1910 was professor of gynecology at the University of Buffalo.

He worked as a gynecologist at the Buffalo General Hospital, and in 1894 was president of the American Gynecological Society. He edited an American System of Gynecology (two volumes, 1887–88), and wrote Immediate Treatment of Rupture of the Perineum (1874) and Manual of Prescription Writing (1878; sixth edition, revised, 1907).

His work on the President has been criticized as Medical malpractice.[citation needed]

Congressman Abijah Mann, Jr. (1793–1868) was his uncle.
