        Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullets (1940)

        Note: see Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullet .pdf Warner Brothers movie or Paul on Encyclopedia and his biography... He was a German physician, biochemist, 1908 Nobel Prize winner and discoverer of the first effective treatment for Syphilis (prior to penicillin). Paul married Hedwig Pinkus, daughter of a prosperous Textile industrialist of Neustadt, Upper Silesia. Paul was born into a comfortable, lively household in a country town in Prussian Silesia, about twenty miles south of Breslau. He was the only son and fourth child of Ismar Ehrlich, a respected but somewhat eccentric Jewish distillier, innkeeper, and lottery collector, and his wife Rosa Weigert, an industrious woman of notable intelligence, charm, and organizational talent. Her cousin, Carl Weigert, the distinguished pathologist, was only nine years older than Paul, and the two became close friends. Besides many of his mothers characteristics the boy had his father’s excitability and interjection-ridden manner of speech, and perhaps inherited certain aptitudes from his paternal grandfather, Heimann? Ehrlich, a prosperous liqueur merchant, who collected an extensive private library and later in life gave lectures on science to fellow citizens of Strehlen... Ehrlich’s name was a household word in Germany until the Nazis came to power when they persecuted his widow and confiscated his property... another biography & Paul and The Hebrew University .pdf

His topic was analytic number theory, and he soon became a leading expert in the field, a very prolific writer, and a successful teacher too.
