Extract

Who is this man whose name is eponymously and famously attached to a laboratory diagnosis, based on a paper he wrote when he was a medical resident? Richard Light, MD, FCCP, was born and raised in Steamboat Springs, on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies, before it was a popular ski resort. His family ran a clothing supply business and a fox and mink farm. His grandfather had migrated from Missouri to Colorado in 1905, taking a horse-drawn stagecoach from Denver across the Rockies, and the Lights became prominent citizens of this rural western town.
