Key Indeviduals Sheet

I made this for my "History of Medicine" course, it is a long document of all the key indeviduals in medicine. I added dates to aid in ordering. What i did with this is printed 2 copies and cut out one copy and stick each person on a revision card and keep the other copy intact, and revised what each person did with the revision cards.

Hope this helps
