John Gorrie
            Dr. John Gorrie was a physician from Apalachicola, Florida. In 1851, he invented an ice-making machine to cool the hospital rooms of yellow fever patients. He was granted the first U.S. patent for refrigeration and worked on experiments to make ice. A statue of Dr. Gorrie was placed in the U.S. Capitol to honor this great Floridian whose invention was the model for what we know as air conditioning.
