[277] Cystitis in the Female, Drainage in Obstinate Chronic Cystitis in the Female, Last Wound and Death of Stonewall Jackson, &c.

Since 1889 Dr. McGuire had given every year a prize of $100 for the best essay by a member of the Virginia Medical Society on an annually announced subject.

Dr. McGuire was a great teacher. He loved teaching. He began his career as a professor in the Winchester Medical College, and then as a quiz-master in Philadelphia. He entered it as a Professor of Clinical Surgery in the University College of Medicine, after having been for years the occupant of a similar chair in the Medical College of Virginia. He delivered his last lecture on the 10th of March, when lectures were suspended for examination. On that occasion he called the attention of his class to the fact that during the entire session he had not missed a lecture, nor had one of the many patients which he had brought before the class in that time failed of recovery.

Dr. McGuire was a superb teacher. His direct manner, his simple, lucid style and his thorough group of every phase of his branch enabled him to impart knowledge with wonderful facility. His students honored him as one of the greatest of his profession, and loved him as a man who knew so well the difficulties of the road along which he led them, and who was always ready to sacrifice precious time if thereby he might help them onward.
