Joseph Thomas Clover (28 February 1825, Aylsham, Norfolk, – 27 September 1882, London) was an English doctor and pioneer of anaesthesia. He invented a variety of pieces of apparatus to deliver anaesthetics including ether and chloroform safely and controllably. By 1871 he had administered anaesthetics 13,000 times without a fatality.
Clover assisted at surgery of public figures including Napoleon III of France, Princess Alexandra of Denmark and her husband King Edward VIII (then Prince of Wales), Sir Robert Peel, and Florence Nightingale.
His inventions included the bulky 'Clover's chloroform apparatus' (1862), with which he was often photographed; and the compact 'Clover's portable regulating ether inhaler' (1877), which remained in used well into the 20th century.
With fellow pioneer John Snow, Clover is one of the supporters on the crest of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Famous quotes containing the words clover, joseph and/or thomas:
“Im in clover now, nor know
Who made honey long ago.”
—Edmund Blunden (18961974)
“It is indeed typical that you Earth people refuse to believe in the superiority of any world but your own. Children looking into a magnifying glass, imagining the image you see is the image of your true size.”
—Franklin Coen. Joseph Newman. The Monitor (Douglas Spencer)
“With wonderful art he grinds into paint for his picture all his moods and experiences, so that all his forces may be brought to the encounter. Apparently writing without a particular design or responsibility, setting down his soliloquies from time to time, taking advantage of all his humors, when at length the hour comes to declare himself, he puts down in plain English, without quotation marks, what he, Thomas Carlyle, is ready to defend in the face of the world.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
