FARGUES, Thomas, physician, born in Quebec, Canada, in 1780; died there, 11 December 1847. He was graduated at Harvard in 1797, and soon afterward sailed for Scotland, where he studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, and obtained a degree, after defending a Latin thesis on " Chorea." He subsequently practiced for several years in London, and became intimate with the eccentric physician, John Abernethy. Dr. Fargues returned to Quebec in 1811, and soon took a high rank as a medical practitioner. He was a man of extensive reading, keen powers of observation, and unusual strength of intellect, and owned the best private medical library in the province, which was purchased after his death and given to the Laval University. He was repeatedly solicited to take a seat in the provincial legislature, but preferred to devote himself exclusively to professional work.
