Dominique Jean Larrey
b. 7-8-1766; France
d. 7-25-1842

Dominique Jean Larrey was a surgeon in Napoleon's army and an important innovator in battlefield medicine:

  • he established the rule of triage for war casualties in providing care based on need and not rank or nationality,
  • developed field hospitals that are forerunners of Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals (MASH), and
  • created ambulance corps.

While Larrey was retrieving and caring for French wounded at Waterloo, the English commander, the Duke of Wellington, ordered his army to not fire in Larrey's direction because of the courage he exhibited.

Larrey also was a co-leader in a surgical team that performed a pre-anesthetic mastectomy on author Frances Burney in 1811.

Carl Linnaeus, also known as Carolus Linnaeus (Latinized) and Carl von Linné (after ennoblement), was a botanist, physician and zoologist. He is recognized as the “Father of Modern Taxonomy”, and one of the fathers of modern ecology.

Linnaeus' contribution to science is the binary nomenclature, a formal system of naming species with a Latin name in two parts: first genus, then a specific description, ie. Rangifer tarandus for the reindeer.

John Locke
b. 8-29-1632; England
d. 10-28-1704

Physician John Locke is best remembered today as the “Father of Liberalism”, one of the most influential Enlightenment era philosophers with his thought instrumental in the founding of the United States nearly a hundred years after his death.

Locke defined a person as “a thinking intelligent Being, that has reason and reflection, and can consider it self as it self, the same thinking thing in different times and places; which it does only by that consciousness, which is inseparable from thinking, and as it seems to me essential to it”... (Essay on Human Understanding, Book 2, Chapter 27, Section 9).

of thought.”

Locke's writing forced him to flee to the Netherlands when he was considered too dangerous to tolerate.

John Locke quotes ~
• “Every man has a property in his own person. This nobody has a right to, but himself.”
• “Government has no other end, but the preservation of property.”
• “I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.”
