Peter Mark Roget
British scholar and physician Peter Mark Roget loved list-making from a young age, perhaps using it as a mechanism to escape from an unhappy childhood. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh before he retired to begin preparations for the publication of the Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases, now known as Roget's Thesaurus, the popular and comprehensive classification of synonyms.
