Eighty Years Ago

Thomas Edward Lawrence, also known as Lawrence of Arabia, died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash.

One of the lesser known facts is that the neurosurgeon who was on the medical team that treated Lawrence after the crash, Dr. Hugh Cairns, then began a study on head injuries suffered by motorcycle riders. His work led directly to the development of crash helmets.
