Eve (1806-1877) Paul Fitzsimmons Eve, native Augustan and a founder of the Medical College of Georgia, was a brilliant surgeon recognized internationally and a prolific writer. His war activities included aid to French, Italian and Confederate forces and service as Major Field Surgeon in the Polish Insurrection of 1830-31 against Russia. He followed the patriotic example of his boyhood hero, General Pulaski, who lost his life in our Revolutionary War.
