DUTTON, Joseph Everett
Preliminary note upon a trypanosome occurring in the blood of man.Thompson Yates Lab. Rep., 4, 455-68, 1902.
Dutton was the first to recognize human trypanosomiasis. He saw Forde’s patient (see No. 5274) and named the trypanosome T. gambiense. Sleeping sickness itself has been referred to as “Dutton’s disease”. The first announcement was in the form of a telegram to Ronald Ross, published in Brit. med. J., 1902, 1, 42.

Independently of Ross and Milne, Dutton and Todd demonstrated relapsing fever in monkeys conveyed by infected ticks, Omithodorus moubata. The organism was named Sp. (now Borrelia) duttoni. Both Dutton and Todd contracted the disease, and the former died of it before the paper was published.
