QUINTARD, Charles Todd, P. E. bishop, born in Stamford, Connecticut, 22 December, 1824. His father, Isaac, a Huguenot, was born in the same house, and died there in the ninetieth year of his age. The son was a pupil of Trinity school, New York, studied medicine with Dr. James R. Wood and Dr. Valentine Molt, and was graduated at the University of the city of New York in 1847. He afterward removed to Georgia, and began the practice of medicine in Athens. In 1851 he accepted the chair of physiology and pathological anatomy in the medical college at Memphis, Tennessee, and became co-editor with Dr. Ayres P. Merrill, of the Memphis "Medical Recorder." In 1855 he took orders as a deacon in the Protestant Episcopal church. He was advanced to the priesthood in the following year, and in January, 1857, became rector of Calvary church, Memphis. He resigned at the end of the year to accept the rectorship of the Church of the Advent, Nashville, Tennessee, at the request of the bishop. At the beginning of the civil war he was appointed chaplain of the 1st Tennessee regiment, and he so continued during the war, in addition to his duties being frequently called upon to act as physician and surgeon. At the close of the war he returned to his parish at Nashville. After the death of Bishop Otey, Dr. Quintard was elected bishop of Tennessee on 7 September, 1865, and was consecrated in St. Luke's church, Philadelphia, on 11 October following. He re-established the south at Sewanee, Tennessee, and was its first vice-chancellor. He visited England several times in the interest of the university, and received large sums of money and gifts of books from members of the established church in that country. He has labored assiduously in the promotion of schemes for Christian education in his diocese, including Columbia institute, founded by Bishop Otey, Fairmount college, the School of the Sisters of St. Mary's, at Memphis, St. James hall, at Bolivar, and St. Luke's school at Cleveland. Bishop Quintard received the degree of D.D. from Columbia in 1866, and that of LL.D. from Cambridge, England, in 1867. He is the author of occasional charges and sermons.
