Scientist
    (October 24, 1632-August 30, 1723)
    Improved the microscope
    Discovered bacteria, sperm cells, blood cells, protists (living parasites), etc
    He is usually considered the inventor of the microscope, but it was actually invented 40 years before his birth (1595).
    He could only speak and write in Dutch, so he had to hire a translator to write his papers in Latin and English.
    He also needed to hire an illustrator for transcribing what his microscope showed.
    Considering having no formal education and no wealth, he was unlikely to make the scientific discoveries he made.
    He built 500 microscopes.
    The highest powered microscope was less than thirty power, his ability of lens grinding led to magnification of 200 times.
