Research Facts
Charles J. B. Williams developed the two-piece monaural stethoscope in 1843 with a trumpet shaped chest end that fit more comfortably against the chest wall, with a removable ear piece. Became the standard design. The two pieces were used in different holes for the examination of the chest or the heart. Also sensitive enough for hearing a fetus in the womb.

Research Facts
The Fergusson model of the monaural stethoscope was designed in England and became the most popular model used in the later half of 19th century medical practice. It was made of straight grained, less dense woods with a small bore central hole such that sounds were readily transmitted. It measured approximately 7 inches in length with a slender stem that had a rounded chest-end bell about 1 inch in diameter that rested comfortably on the patient. The ear plate was approximately 2.5 inches in diameter and fit snugly over the ear in order to prevent dispersion of the transmitted sounds. The Fergusson stethoscopes often had a maker's mark, physician's name or initials, or other identifying characteristic engraved on the ear plate.
The doctor that designed this monaural stethoscope is unknown as there were two British doctors practicing in the 19th century with similar names.

James M. Munyon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_M._Munyon; CD #6
Research Facts
Dr. James M. Munyon (1848 – 1918) was known for homeopathic patent medicines, some of which he promoted at his Hotel Hygeia on Munyon Island, named Hotel Hygeia after the Greek goddess of health and it catered to wealthy northerners who spent the winters in Palm Beach, Florida. The five-story hotel had twenty-one rooms and eight baths. The hotel burned to the ground in 1917. His first career was as a publisher, but he soon moved on to creating homeopathic medicines in the early 1890s. He employed a staff of chemists and physicians, one of them Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen. Munyon was found guilty of fraud several times due to unsubstantiated claims for his medicines. Many of his medicines are said to have consisted mostly of sugar and alcohol. His most famous one was named "Dr. Munyon's Paw-Paw Elixir" and its main ingredient was fermented papaya juice. It was served at his resort, Hotel Hygeia, on Munyon Island. At the time his cures were highly regarded with the Philadelphia Times writing that "Professor Munyon is to medicine what Professor Edison is to electricity."
