Quintard’s findagrave.com  biography reads as follows:

“Physician, Anglican Bishop, Founding University President, Civil War Confederate Army Officer. A multi-talented man, he is remembered for rebuilding and opening the University of the South. Raised in Connecticut by his Huguenot family, Quintard received his M.D. from the University Medical College of New York University in 1847. After practicing for a year in Athens, Georgia, he moved to Tennessee where he became a professor at Memphis Medical College and an early pioneer in the field of Yellow Fever epidemiology. Coming under the influence of Bishop James Hervey Otey, he studied for the Episcopal ministry while continuing his medical practice and was ordained a priest on January 6, 1856. He was to serve as Rector of Nashville's Church of the Advent until after the Civil War, his theological perspectives in line with those of the 'High Churchmen' who favored using as much of the Roman ritual as possible; with the secession of Tennessee, he joined the First Tennessee Infantry Regiment as a chaplain in May 1861. During the conflict he was to serve as both minister, providing religious instruction to General Braxton Bragg, and surgeon, then with the end of hostilities, he resumed his pastorate in Nashville until his consecration as the second Bishop of Tennessee on October 11, 1865. He was to hold that office until his death, greatly expanding the ministry of the Church, especially to newly-freed slaves, and indeed helping to open Hoffman Hall, an Episcopal seminary for blacks which was associated with Nashville's Fisk University. During the 1850s, Bishop Leonidas Polk had founded, with Bishop Otey's help, the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee; Bishop Otey died in 1863, Bishop/General Polk was killed in action at Pine Mountain, Georgia on June 14, 1864, and the Yankees completely destroyed the school. The Right Reverend Quintard set about becoming the "second founder"; he served as the first Vice-Chancellor (the chief operating official) from February 14, 1867 until July 12, 1872 and oversaw construction and the admission of the first students in 1868, while hiring a number of prominent Confederates including General Edmund Kirby Smith to serve on the faculty. During his tenure he travelled extensively in America and England, raising goodly sums of money for the University. Dr. Quintard received honorary doctorates from Columbia and Cambridge Universities, remained on the job, and died following a period of declining health. During the Civil War he had kept a diary of the experiences of one close to the centers of power in the Army of Tennessee; this was published in 1905, edited by Reverend Arthur Noll, and has remained continuously in print. Today, the University of the South continues in full operation.”

Rev. Quintard died in Darien, Georgia on February 15,1898 and is buried in the University of the South Cemetery in Sewanee, Tennessee.  [ad]  [ph:L]
