CARPIO, Manuel, Mexican physician, born in Cosamaloapam, Vera Cruz, 1 May, 1791; died in the City of Mexico, 11 February, 1860. He studied philosophy, theology, and law in Puebla, but ended by devoting himself to medicine, the bishop of Pue-bla giving him a pension to finish his studies in the City of Mexico. Before going to the capital, he had associated with others in Puebla for the study of medicine, and founded a medical academy, of which he was elected president. He was graduated in Mexico in 1832, appointed professor of physiology and hygiene in 1833, secretary, and afterward president, of the Academy of medicine, member of the general commission of studies, vice-president of the health Council, and professor of history of medical sciences. Carpio was a remarkable classic scholar, possessing a profound knowledge of ancient history, and made Palestine his favorite study. He was a deputy to congress in 1824, and then became its president; was again elected deputy in 1846 and 1848, senator in 1851, and member of the state council in 1858. But he is best known in Mexico by his poems, the first of which appeared, when he was over forty years old, in 1832. From that time many others of his poetical compositions were published, and finally collected in one volume (1849). Besides his poems he left several works, among them "La Tierra Santa," "Medicina Domdstica," and some translations from Latin and French medical books.
