In 1847, McDowell struck out on his own and constructed a building to house the school at Ninth and Gratiot Streets, overlooking Chouteau’s Pond. The notoriety of the building though was often overshadowed by the notoriety of the school’s founder. Joseph McDowell was considered to be one of the finest doctors of his day. His eccentricities aside (and there were many!), he was thought of as an excellent physician and a very capable surgeon in a city where medical standards were high. In November 1861, General Henry Halleck took over as a commander of the Union Army’s Department of the West, headquartered in St. Louis. He converted the McDowell Medical School into a prison for captured Confederate soldiers .and was named the Gratiot Street prison.
