First edition. Garrison-Morton 858.1: "In 1931, the year before his son's sensational kidnapping, the celebrity aviator began working with Alexis Carrel at the Rockefeller Institute on a perfusion pump which would allow the cultivation of whole organs in vitro. His pump maintained a sterile, pulsating circulation of fluid through excised organs, and enabled Carrel to keep organs such as the thyroid gland and kidney alive and functioning. It is a forerunner of the modern heart pump." Book Id: 39713
