GAILLARD, Peter Cordes, physician, born in Charleston, South Carolina. 29 August, 1815 ; died there, 14 January 1859. His mother, Rebecca Foster, was the daughter of Mrs. Brewton, who was noted for her patriotism during the Revolution. Dr. Gaillard was graduated at the College of South Carolina, Columbia, in 1834, and at the medical College of the same name in Charleston in 1837, after visiting Paris in the interval. He subsequently returned to the latter City, where he studied his profession for several years. He then settled in Charleston and spent his life there. He succeeded Dr. S. H. Dickson in 1858 as professor of medicine in South Carolina medical College, and was also assistant editor of the "Charleston Medical Journal," and president of the South Carolina medical society. He made a specialty of hygiene and sanitary science, and believed that yellow fever is imported and, to a certain extent, contagious.
