Robert Koch - 1905!
In 1905 Robert Koch was awarded The Nobel Prize in
Physiology or Medicine "for his investigations and discoveries in relation
to tuberculosis." His discovery of the tubercle bacillus was announced
1882 in Berliner klinische Wochenschrift. Two years later in 1884 he published a
fuller account in a paper Die Aetiologie der Tuberkulose in Mittheilungen
aus dem kaiserlichen Gesundheitsamte 2, where he reported how he succeeded
in producing experimental tuberculosis in animals after cultivating the
Hagströmer Library Collection.
