Sir Leonard Erskine Hill
(2 Jun 1866 - 30 Mar 1952)
British physiologist whose research included many studies on the regulation of breathing and the effects of oxygen. Hill is credited with designing the first bedside oxygen tent. A minor, but intriguing discovery was that after inhaling oxygen, a singer could better sustain a note or trill, about which he suggested oxygen-enhanced music could be specially written.
