Eric Lax has written "The Mold in Dr. Flory's Coat", telling the real story of how the development of penicillin came about. Although Alexander Fleming is the name we learn in school, there is a great measure of injustice in the way the credit has been distributed for the discovery and by exploring the penicillin saga, Eric Lax does a great service to history. Read this review in the New York Times.
"I knew nothing of books when I came forth from the womb of my mother, and I shall die without books, with another human hand in my own. I do, indeed, close my door at times and surrender myself to a book, but only because I can open the door again and see a human being looking at me."

From the Webmaster:
You'll find here a strange combination of people.. found while searching, usually, for something else. Some are famous, some almost-unheard-of, some are dead, some are living.
If I could, I might put half the people in the world here. Every person is a story in himself, made by his times, him/herself, and the people and circumstances met along the way. There are no boring people, just people we know nothing about.
