Walter Bradford Cannon (right) was a HMS professor and one of the first Americans to utilize x-rays in research. Cannon's research allowed him to establish a link between emotions and physiological reactions in the body. 
Cannon's inquiries into the physiology of the digestive system inspired his interest in the work of internationally acclaimed physiologist, Ivan Pavlov. In 1920, Cannon discovered that Pavlov was facing starvation in St. Petersburg due to the Russian Civil War and worked to get assistance to Pavlov and other Russian scientists. The two established a friendship that lasted until Pavlov's death in 1936.

Cannon and Pavlov are shown here at their first face-to-face meeting on June 26, 1923 in Boston. #HarvardMed #tbt #history
