Interesting. Which brings up a larger question that I find interesting. People that have achieved a sort of immortality... aspects of them live on after they have died. I can think of antoher good example. HeLa cells - a form of cells used in research that were harvested from patient Henrietta Lacks in 1951.

Quote:

HeLa cells were used by Johans Salk to test the first polio vaccine in the 1950s. Since that time, HeLa cells have been used for "research into cancer, AIDS, the effects of radiation and toxic substances, gene mapping, and many other scientific pursuits".According to author rebecca Skloot, by 2009, "more than 60,000 scientific articles had been published about research done on HeLa, and that number was increasing steadily at a rate of more than 300 papers each month."

Resuscitation Annie (also rescue Annie and CPR Annie) is just the name given to the doll like device used to train people in the use of CPR.

At least two posters in the linked page's discussion thread had been trained using CPR Annie , but didn't know her history. I'd have expected a brief comment or two regarding that to be a traditional part of every instructor's opening remarks.
