    Notes: Julian J. Chisholm of Charleston, South Carolina, studied medicine at the medical college of the state of South Carolina and after graduating there went to Europe to perfect himself in his chosen profession. Returning to Charleston he soon displayed great skill and ability as a surgeon and was appointed professor of surgery at the Medical College. Chisholm was one of the most famous surgeons of the Confederate Army. His “Manual of Military Surgery” became the text-book of the Confederate surgeons and is a work of high merit. After the war he resumed practice in Charleston, but in 1869 removed to Baltimore, Maryland, where he was at once appointed professor of operative surgery and diseases of eye and ear on the medical side of the University of Maryland. In 1873 he abandoned surgery and devoted himself exclusively to his specialty, diseases of the eye and ear. In 1877 he founded the Presbyterian Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital of Baltimore. A stroke of apoplexy compelled him in 1894 to retire from a most active and meritorious career and he died at Petersburg, Virginia November 2, 1903. Chisholm was a man of strong personality, unbounded energy, a teacher of great power and full of enthusiasm for his calling.
