Scope Note

This collection contains materials from German ophthalmologist Dr. Ernst Kraupa (fl. 1910-1950). The bulk of the collection consists of patient charts and plans of treatment. Of note is that these charts concern military patients, as they come from a war time hospital (Kriegsspital) in Vienna during 1917-1918. The subject of the lantern slides is also depicted in photographs, along with other portraits and prints of ophthalmological maladies and ophthalmology clinics. Materials in German.
