How Beaumont got its name
Beaumont is named for William Beaumont, M.D., who - in 1822 at an isolated army outpost on Mackinac Island, Michigan - made a breakthrough in the study of human digestion and physiology. After a French Canadian trapper suffered an abdominal wound that healed with a permanent opening, Dr. Beaumont took the opportunity to study digestion, both inside and outside the stomach. He conducted 238 experiments and published several reports that were considered the most important work on human digestion at that time.
