Interesting People - Peter Mark Roget,

Peter Mark Roget, was a British physician and lexicographer. He published the Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (Roget’s Thesaurus) in 1852.

(Seemingly he was a bit OCD, and was obsessed with list-making from an early age. His work on the thesaurus arose partly from his attempt to battle depression.

The students of the world salute you Mr Roget.)
