Fact of the Day: Electric Dentist Chair


The Electric Chair was the idea of Dr. Alfred P. Southwick who saw a intoxicated man die quickly after touching a live generator. The reason why he chose a chair was because he was a dentist and was used to working with chairs. He saw the electric chair as a more humane form of execution than hanging.
