"A new chapter has been opened in the study of heart diesease, not by
the work of a single investigator, but by that of many talented men, who
have not been influenced in their work by political boundaries and,
distributed over the whole surface of the heart, have devoted their powers
to an ideal purpose, the advance of knowledge by which, finally,
suffering mankind is helped."
Wilhem Einthoven from his Nobel Lecture, December 11, 1925.
