Jean De Carro, a German physician, born in Geneva, Aug. 8, 1770, died at Carlsbad, March 12, 1857. Taking up his abode in "Vienna in 1795, he became celebrated by his efforts in spreading Jenner's system of vaccination as a protection against smallpox in Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Russia. In 1800 he sent a . quantity of virus to Lord Elgin at Constantinople, together with a work of his own, translated into Turkish, on vaccination. The attempts of the English to introduce vaccination into India having been unsuccessful, because the virus had deteriorated on the way, Carro procured vaccine matter from cows of Lom-bardy, and sent it to Dr. Harford at Bagdad. This retained all its strength, and was the means of introducing kinepox inoculation into India. The Hindoos consider it to be derived from a sacred cow, to which they give the name of amurtum, or immortality. Carro published Observations et experiences sur Vino-culation de la vaccine (Vienna, 1801); His-toire de la vaccination en Tnrquie, en Grece et aux hides Orientales (1803); Carlsbad et ses eanx minerales (1827); and Vingt-huit ans d"observation et d"experiences a Carlsbad (1853). For many years he published annually the Almanack de Carlsbad.
