Episcopal Bishop Charles T. Quintard was born at Stamford, Connecticut, the son of Isaac Quintard and Clarissa Hoyt. In 1847 he received his M.D. degree from University Medical College, New York University, and worked for a year at Bellevue Hospital. About a year later, he moved to Athens, Georgia, and practiced medicine there. In 1851 Quintard became professor of physiology and pathological anatomy at the Memphis Medical College and one of the editors of the Memphis Medical Reporter. While in Memphis, Quintard studied for the ministry of the Protestant Episcopal Church under Bishop James Otey and was ordained deacon on January 1, 1855, and priest on January 6, 1856. He was rector of the Church of the Advent, Nashville, until he was consecrated the second Bishop of Tennessee on October 11, 1865. He served in that position until his death in 1898.

During the Civil War, Quintard was a chaplain for the Confederate army. He also worked as a surgeon. As bishop he was instrumental in the revival of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Tennessee and extended its ministry to blacks. He was deeply interested in education and supported the founding of a number of preparatory schools. His greatest contribution to education was in rebuilding the University of the South after the devastation of the Civil War; he served as the first vice-chancellor of the University, February 14, 1867-July 12, 1872. Quintard made several trips to England to raise money for the University.

In 1848 Quintard married Katherine Isabella Hand of Roswell, Georgia, and they had three children.

Charles Todd Quintard (1824–1898) was an American physician and clergyman who became the second bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee and the first Vice-Chancellor of the University of the South at Sewanee.

He was born in Stamford, Connecticut to a Huguenot-descended family and attended school in New York City, including medical studies at University Medical College, New York University and Bellevue Hospital, graduating in 1847. Quintard moved to Athens, Georgia, in 1848 to take up a medical practice, then moved to Memphis in 1851 to teach physiology and pathological anatomy at Memphis Medical College. Dr. Quintard's 1854 report on Memphis mortality statistics was covered in the New York Times, including his assessment of the city as being "the first considerable place to be without the range of yellow fever," a boast that proved tragically incorrect in the 1870s.
