John Haighton, M.D. F.R.S., 1818
John Haighton (1755–1823) was an English physician and lecturer on obstetrics and midwifery at St. Thomas and Guy's School and Hospital. Noted for conducting experiments in physiology, his work was a major influence on his nephew, James Blundell (1791–1878), whose accomplishments include the first successful human-to-human blood transfusion.
