Civil War Confederate Army Officer. Served as a Colonel and surgeon in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. After moving to St. Louis in 1840, he founded the medical department of Kemper College, later known as McDowell Medical College. In 1847 he erected the McDowell Medical College building, which became the medical department of Missouri State University (now the University of Missouri). At the beginning of the Civil War, he made no secret of his southern sympathies. His building was confiscated and used first as a barracks, then as the infamous Gratiot Street Prison. During the war he served as medical director for General Sterling Price's command in the Department of the Trans-Mississippi.
