(September 26, 1927 – November 27, 2007)

On October 2, 1965, a team of scientists invented Gatorade, a
sports drink to quench thirst, in a University of Florida lab. The
name "Gatorade" is derived from the nickname of the university’s
sports teams. Eventually, the drink becomes a phenomenon and
makes its inventors wealthy.

Early in the summer of 1965, University of Florida assistant football coach Dewayne Douglas met a group of scientists on campus to determine why many of Florida’s players were so negatively
affected by heat. To replace bodily fluids lost during physical
exertion, Dr. James Robert Cade and his team of researchers
created the sports drink.
