Alexander Fleming was born in a remote,
rural part of Scotland. The seventh of eight siblings and half-siblings,
his family worked an 800-acre farm a mile from the nearest house. The
Fleming children spent much of their of time ranging through the streams,
valleys, and moors of the countryside. "We unconsciously learned a
great deal from nature," said Fleming. He discovered Penicillin.
