A biomedical engineer and physician who retired from a medical research career at the National Institutes of Health.
For the last 35 years, Jodi Koste, Archivist at the Medical College of Virginia, and I have been compiling a biographical register of physicians who served the Confederacy in a medical capacity. At the present time there are over 10,200 files in the database, but because of duplications through multiple spellings of surnames and given names, I estimate there were about 9000 different individuals who served as physicians. Cemetery documentation often supplies useful information about Confederate physicians and can help correct spelling errors. Find A Grave memorials have provided valuable information for the register and in turn, to those who use it.
