Research into the possibilities of using breath to test for alcohol in a person’s body dates as far back as 1874, when Francis E. Anstie made the observation that small amounts of alcohol were excreted in breath. In 1927 a Chicago chemist, William Duncan McNally, invented a breathalyzer with one use was for housewives to test whether their husbands had been drinking. In late 1927, in a case in Marlborough, England, a Dr. Gorsky, Police Surgeon, asked a suspect to inflate a football bladder with his breath. Since the 2 liters of the man’s breath contained 1.5 ml of ethanol, Dr. Gorsky testified before the court that the defendant was “50% drunk”!
