I'll be gone about 4-5 hours. Happy guessing in the meantime!

I had hoped there would be more questions.

Clues thus far: He was a doctor, and what he invented came from the two things he dealt with in his practice. From the United States.

New clue: He worked in pediatrics and poison control.

Actually, there is something I need to do, and I don't know how long it will take, so I would like to pass this to Andy M or suziquzie, whichever is fastest, lol.

This was Jay Morris Arena. Professor of pediatrics at Duke University Medical School. First director of Duke University Poison Control Center. Invented child-proof safety cap for medicine bottles.
