CARRIEL, HENRY BUTTOLPH, M. D. , Superintendent of the Illinois Central Hospital for the Insane, Jacksonville, was born in Trenton, N. J., June 21, 1863, and is a son of Henry Frost and Mary Catherine (Buttolph) Carriel. (A detailed sketch of his father's life will be found elsewhere in this work.) In 1870 he was brought to Jacksonville by his parents and attended the public schools of that city and Illinois College, from which he was graduated with the class of 1885. Upon the completion of his classical course he entered the Chicago Medical College (now the medical department of Northwestern University), from which he was graduated in 1888, with the degree of Doctor of Medicine. After serving as his father's assistant in the insane hospital for a few months, he acted for one year as interne in Mercy Hospital, Chicago. The following year was devoted to study in the principal insane hospitals of Europe, his research in this direction taking him to Berlin, Vienna, Paris, London, Dublin and other cities. Upon his return to America he engaged in private practice in Chicago, where he was located for about seven years. On April 19, 1897, he became First Assistant Physician to the Central Hospital at Jacksonville, then under the superintendency of Dr. Winslow, remaining in that capacity until December 1, 1901, when he was appointed Acting Superintendent of the hospital at Bartonville, Ill. On July 1, 1902, he was appointed Superintendent of the institution at Jacksonville, and has since continuously occupied that post.

On December 1, 1891, Dr. Carriel was united in marriage with Ada Margaret Smith, daughter of J. B. Smith, and a niece of Judge Abner Smith, of Chicago. They are the parents of one daughter, Isabel.

Though a comparatively young man, Dr. Carriel has established a high reputation in his special department of medical science. The years which he has devoted to research and private practice in one of the great cities of the world-a city prolific in material which appeals to a progressive and studious specialist-have rendered him peculiarly well qualified for the great undertaking which lies before
