Society, and of the Richmond School Board; was chosen president of the Association of Medical and Surgical Officers of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States, at Atlanta, Ga., May 25, 1874, and was elected one of the vice-presidents of the Section of Military and Naval Surgery in the ninth International Congress, 1887. He died at his residence, No. 202 West Grace street, Richmond, Va., May 31, 1889, and was buried in Hollywood cemetery. In person he was above medium stature well formed, erect, and of soldierly bearing; regular, handsome features, not austere, but subdued by thought and studious habits. With acquaintances he was genial, having a pleasant brightness and a keen, but harmless, wit. In official life a strict disciplinarian, but appreciative of faithful service. He was always extremely modest in referring to his own work, and only alluded to it at comparatively long intervals and upon the most intimate occasions. That he spared not himself the best testimony is the high renown he won for himself and his faithful corps with the medical world, which has justified the wisdom of his selection for the duties imposed upon him, and also by the loving regard felt for him in recognition and appreciation of his services, by all the people of his beloved Southland.
