GARRIGUES, Henry Jacques, physician, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, 6 June, 1831. He was graduated at the University of Copenhagen in 1850, and then studied medicine for four years, until sickness forced him to discontinue his studies. During the next four years he traveled in Europe and America, and on his return to his native country he was appointed professor of French in the military academy of Copenhagen. In 1869 he was graduated in medicine and practiced in Copenhagen until 1875, when he came again to the United States, and has since remained here. He first settled in Brooklyn, but in 1879 removed to New York City. He was appointed physician to the gynecological department of the German dispensary in 1879, obstetric surgeon to the Maternity hospital in 1881, obstetrician to the Infant asylum in 1884, gynecologist to the German hospital in 1885, and in 1886 professor of practical obstetrics in the Post-graduate medical school and hospital. Dr. Garrigues is a member of numerous medical societies, and has taken an active part in their proceedings. Besides numerous papers on gynecology in the "American Journal of Obstetrics" and the "Transactions of the Gynecological Society," he has published "Gastro-Elytrotomy " (New York, 1878); " Diagnosis of Ovarian Cysts by means of the Examination of the Contents" (1882) ; "Practical Guide in Antiseptic Midwifery" (Detroit); and part of the "System of Gynecology by American Authors" (Philadelphia, 1887).
