a physician, pharmaceutical merchant and land developer of Maine. After studying medicine in New York, London and Paris, Dr. Gardiner opened a practice in Boston, where he became a lecturer on anatomy. He actively promoted inoculation for small pox, for which he proposed and established a hospital in 1761. But he made his fortune importing drugs for distribution and sale. But he is most remembered for his purchase and development of over 100,000 acres (400 kmĀ²) of wilderness on the Kennebec River in Maine, where he founded what is today the city of Gardiner.
