Beethoven's hair

William J. Walsh, chief scientist for the Health Research Institute, takes out a sample of Ludwig von Beethoven's hair. Studies made with parts of the Advanced Photon Source, a research facility on the grounds of Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, Ill., show that it is very probable that Beethoven suffered from lead poisoning.Chicago Tribune/Stephanie Sinclair
