Happy Birthday Peter Mark Roget!

Why is Roget one of my heroes? 

He was by all accounts a brilliant physician who went on to co-found the Univerity of London.  He invented the slide rule, which was still being taught during my freshman year of college. 

Might be better known in America for a project he picked up after he retired, Roget's Thesaurus.
