William B. Hazard was born March 20, 1843, at North Ferrisburgh, Vermont. He went to the war when nineteen years of age, but exposure in the field brought on paralysis of the legs. This compelled a change in his plans for life, and he studied medicine, first at Monmouth, Illinois, then a Chicago, and finally graduated at Bellevue Hospital, New York City. After graduating, he became assistant physician at the Flatbush (Long Island) Hospital. He went to St. Louis in 1866. For a number of years he was Superintendent of the St. Louis Insane Asylum, and afterward consulting physician at the City Hospital, and a professor at the St. Louis College of Physicians and Surgeons, a position which he resigned in 1887. He was editor of The Clinic Record and a contributor for many medical publications. He died March 17, 1888. He married, April 21, 1868, Gertrude M. Holmes, of Charlotte, Vermont. Mr. Hazard died in St. Louis.
