Come enjoy wonderful AAHS Board historical researcher James Hargrove, as only he can unfold the twists and turns of the life and times of Dr. John Gorrie. Gorrie's statue in Statuary Hall in the US Capital celebrated his efforts in the field of "air conditioning", as well as his invention, for which he got a patent in 1851, which froze ice.
