John Hughes Bennett (1812-1875), English physician, considered the father of physiological education in schools having introduced practical classes in the teaching of physiology at Edinburgh. Bennett's primary contribution to medicine was the first description of leukemia as a disorder of the blood. He was also the first to teach the systematic use of the microscope in the fields of both pathology and physiology.£ 75.00 Antiquates Ref: 12004
