Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin (1738-1814) hoped that a more humane and less painful method of execution than hanging would be the first step toward a total abolition of the death penalty. The use of his name for the machine designed by Antoine Louis was a life-long embarassment. Although he was arrested during the Terror he avoided the death penalty and died of natural causes.
