Caption: Luther Leonidas Terry (1911-1985), US Surgeon General. Terry is famous for overseeing the 1964 report that warned about the dangers of tobacco smoking. Published in January 1964, the report concluded that lung cancer and chronic bronchitis were caused by cigarette smoking. The report led to increased medical studies and legislation to control advertising and sale of cigarettes. Terry, who trained as a doctor, was US Surgeon General from 1961 to 1965.
