Horace Wells. Alas a demonstration for medical students went awry and he was disgraced. He later became addicted to chloroform and eventually became so deranged that he threw sulfuric acids over two women. He was in gaol when his mind cleared. He was so distraught by his actions that he killed himself by severing an artery in his leg while using chloroform as an anaesthetic.
