Dr. William F. House, a well-known ear specialist, lived at this residence for nearly 50 years beginning in the 1940s.
“Cochlear Implants: Dr. House spent 27 years developing this tiny surgically embedded miracle–a cure, in many cases, for severe deafness–at his lab at the House Ear Institute in Santa Monica. The first trials, in the early 1960s, were not encouraging, as patients rejected the implant designed to electronically stimulate the auditory nerve. But, by 1984, he’d improved it enough for FDA approval. Today, ten years since his death, House’s invention has helped more than 700,000 people recover their hearing.” (Source: Los Angeles magazine, May 2022, p. 24)
