Samuel David Gross
Birth: Jul. 8, 1805
Death: May 6, 1884

Medical Pioneer. A 1828 graduate of Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he would go on to make significant contributions to 19th Century medical knowledge and techniques. He was the first to give systematic course lectures on the topic of anatomy, and was the first to suggest and practice suturing divided nerves and tendons, and treating certain dislocations by wiring up the ends of the bones. He also invented a type of tourniquet, and an pioneering blood transfusion apparatus. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
