(1) Babington was responsible for the introduction of laryngoscopy. He demonstrated a crude "glottiscope" to the Hunterian Society on March 18, 1829, but his effort attracted little attention. Garrison-Morton.com No. 3327.
(2) Aoritc insufficiency is usually associated with the name of Corrigan, but Hodgkin's account antedates Corrigan by three years. Garrison-Morton.com 2746.
