Harvey

 [hahr´ve]
William (1578–1657). English physician and physiologist. Born at Folkestone in Kent, he attended the universities of Cambridge and Padua, and announced in 1628 his discovery of the circulation of blood, which was a model of accurate experimentation and inductive proof and the first application of quantitative demonstration in any biologic investigation. His De generatione animalium is important in the history of embryology, for in it Harvey rejected the doctrine of preformation of the fetus and stated that almost all animals, including humans, are produced from eggs.
