  • Notes 
    • Acclaimed physician is unique in that he named himself. Douglas' father insisted he was born the day South Carolina seceded from the Union and named his son John C. Calhoun Douglas. His mother never accepted this name, however, and Douglas was called 'Dixie' until he was twelve years old, at which time he changed his name to 'Richard.'
