GUTIERREZ, Jose Nicolas (goo-te-er'-reth), Cuban physician, born in Havana, Cuba, in 1800. He was graduated in medicine in his native city in 1826, soon attained eminence in his profession, and filled the chairs of anatomy, pathology, and clinics in the University of Havana. He founded in 1840 the "Repertorio Medico Habanero," the first medical review published in Cuba, now called " Cronica Medico-Quirurgica de la Habana." Since 1853 it has borne on its title page his likeness with the inscription, "Founder of the medical press in Cuba." With Dr. Zambrana he founded, in 1861, the Academy of sciences of Havana, and in 1874 a museum of natural history, annexed to the academy. Dr. Gutierrez is a correspondent and member of the Phrenological society of Paris, of the medical academies of Madrid, Cadiz, and New Orleans, of the Lyceum of Rome, and other scientific societies. He is now (1887) engaged in a project to erect a suitable building for the Academy of sciences. His published works include "Importancia de la Quimica en la Medicina" (1821); "Catecismo de Medicina physiologica" (1826); and "Lecciones de Anatomia" (1854).
