Eminent Person 2013

For my Grade nine eminent person, I chose French neurologist Gilles de la Tourette, who was the first person to diagnose Tourette Syndrome. He also worked with hypnotism in court cases, and was later shot in the head (which wasn’t the cause of his death). The following links are all of my posts.

This is the introductory post, which gives a summary of the person’s life and why I chose them.
