Name of creator
William M. McPheeters was a physician who practiced in St. Louis after obtaining his medical degree in Philadelphia. During the Civil War, his family was among the numerous St. Louis families who sympathized with the South, so they were forced to pay fines that would be used for the relief of refugees. McPheeters refused to take an oath of loyalty to the Union, so he left his family and practice to offer his medical expertise to the Confederacy in Richmond, VA in 1862. He was appointed as the medical director for General Price's army in Tupelo, Mississippi. After the war, McPheeters returned to St. Louis to resume his practice. He remained in St. Louis for the rest of his life, serving as editor and contributor to the St. Louis Medical and Surgical Journal.
