Biography of Dr. Julius Pohlman


Pohlman, Julius, M.D., Buffalo, has had an altogether unusual career, one full of marked changes and honorable advancement. He was born in Germany in 1848, and entered upon the life of a sailor at the age of fourteen, visiting during the next six years about all the countries of the globe. In 1868 he prepared himself for a master's diploma at the Hamburg College of Navigation. He served in the German army from 1869 to 1870. and sailed as mate on a vessel cruising between Bremen, Brazil and New York for the next two years. He arrived in Buffalo in 1872 and received a pilot's certificate to navigate the great lakes in 1874. Diligent study had now prepared him for a somewhat different sphere of action, and he accepted a position as assistant in a museum of the Society of Natural Sciences in 1878, and a little later was appointed director. In 1880 he began his formal education in medicine in the University of Buffalo and graduated in 1883. He was appointed lecturer on physiology in 1884, and professor of physiology in 1886, a position he still retains. Dr. Pohiman has received recognition as a scientist from the American Association for the Advancement of Science by being appointed delegate to the meeting of the German Naturalists' Society held at Berlin in 1886, a most unusual honor, and by being elected general secretary of the association in 1888. The doctor is a Fellow of the American Geological Society; Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Science, and of the New York State Medical Association; corresponding member of the Rochester Academy of Science, and foreign member of the German Psychological Society of Berlin.
