Note from Lorie: Dr. Frederick Montizambert (1843-1929) received his medical education at Université Laval and University of Edinburgh, with further studies in infectious diseases at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
“On Montizambert’s initiative, the [Grosse Île quarantine] station rapidly and radically altered its scientific approach. From the 1880s, on the heels of major discoveries in microbiology, disinfectants and vaccination put an end to lengthy confinement. In 1892 a bacteriological laboratory was built on the island, enabling bacteria of infectious diseases to be quickly identified. In this way, serious illnesses could be distinguished from ordinary infections that could be treated at Quebec.” (source – Dictionary of Canadian Biography)
