Hall Marshall

Hall, Marshall (1790-1857), the author of the accepted method for restoring respiration after apparent drowning, was born at Basford, Notts, being a son of Robert Hall, who first used chlorine for bleaching cotton. Having graduated at Edinburgh and visited the medical schools at Paris, Gottingen, and Berlin, he began to practise as a physician at Nottingham, but left it for London in 1826 and practised there till 1853. He made important discoveries in connection with the reflex action of the spinal system, and published able works on diagnosis, the circulation of the blood, and other medical subjects. His memoirs, with a biography, were written by his widow.
