PAS@ALIS-OUYIERE, Felix, physician, born in Provence, France, about 1750; died in New York city in 1840. He studied medicine in Montpellier, and after obtaining his degree went to Santo Domingo, where he practised with success and acquired an extensive knowledge of botany and other departments of natural history. The revolt of the negroes forced him to leave the island in 1793, and he took refuge in the United States, where he quickly acquired reputation in the practice of his profession. He lived at first in Philadelphia, but subsequently removed to New York, where he resided for more than thirty years. At the time of the epidemic in Cadiz in 1805 he went to that city, and afterward to Gibraltar to study the nature of the disease. His observations convinced him that it was not contagious, and he gave expression to his views in his writings, although he had long held a different opinion. He was the founder of the Linnaean society of New York, and member of several academies and learned societies. He wrote " Description of the Contagious and Epidemic Yellow Fever that reigned in Philadelphia in 1797" (Philadelphia, 1798); a translation of the work of Vicq-d'Azyr on "Interments," with original notes and observations (New York, 1823); and " Eulogy on Hon. S. L. Mitchill, M. D., before the New York City and County Medical Society, 1831 " (1831). He also published many reports and memoirs on yellow fever, on the black color of the African races, and other subjects.
