WIKI INFO: Ádám Politzer 1835-1920.....(Hungarian: Politzer Ádám; born 1 October 1835, Albertirsa, Pest, Hungary and died 10 August 1920 in Vienna, Austria) was a Hungarian and Austrian physician and one of the pioneers and founders of otology. Otology is study of normal and pathological anatomy and physiology of the ear (hearing and vestibular sensory systems and related structures and functions) as well as their diseases, diagnosis and treatment. The luminous cone of the tympanic membrane is named after him, as well as the Unna–Politzer nevus, a typical birthmark found on the nape of the neck in 25 to 50% of normal persons. In addition, in 1893 Politzer was the first to describe otosclerosis as a separate clinical entity. He also studied the pathology of cholesteatoma, serous otitis media, labyrinthitis, congenital deafness and intracranial complications of otitis media.
A wonderful original CDV photo of a famous and influential doctor, found in Rochester, Monroe County NY.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
