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 bacillus.
