Daniel Hale Williams

DHW (Daniel Hale Williams) was the first man to complete open heart surgery! He also opened the first interracial hospital! The coolest thing I learned about DHW was that he performed open heart surgery and the man that got the surgery lived on for a while.
This man was brave. I know I wouldn't do open heart surgery on ANYBODY... I would probably kill them. DHW also is incredibly nice to spend all of his time and money to open an interracial hospital.
