If Simon Flexner had been asked to classify himself, beyond doubt he would have deemed his place to lie amongst the most factual of men; for always he concerned himself with immediate situations and his logic was severe. He had no use for prophecy, and visionaries he could not understand. Yet he had vision of the sharpest, seeing the future implicit in the present; and he acted upon what he saw. From youth, as if with foreknowledge, he made himself ready for the needs of a coming time, moulding…

Landsteiner was born in Vienna on 14 June 1868, of Jewish parents. His father Leopold, a journalist, died when the boy was six and he grew up the devoted companion of his mother, Fanny Hess
The Huxley Lecture ON RECENT ADVANCES IN SCIENCE IN RELATION TO PRACTICAL MEDICINE. SOME PROBLEMS IN INFECTION AND ITS CONTROL
TLDR
The theme which I have chosen to discuss before you is bacteriology, and I must believe that Huxley would have felt a deep interest in the theme, and would have found in its intrinsic importance a compensation for any shortcoming that may appear in the presentation.
OBVIOUS AND OBSCURE INFECTIONS OF CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
TLDR
The first quarter of the twentieth century will long be remembered because of the occurrence of three severe epidemic diseases of the central nervous system, thus constituting the pandemic of meningitis of the twenties century.
CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE PATHOLOGY OF EXPERIMENTAL VIRUS ENCEPHALITIS
TLDR
It is concluded that any distinction made regarding encephalitogenic power as a special property of a virus secured from cases of epidemic encephalitis, and of ectotropic action as an equally special quality of airus yielded by febrile herpes, is in its nature artificial and not in harmony with ascertained fact.
THE TRANSMISSION OF EPIDEMIC POLIOMYELITIS TO MONKEYS: A FURTHER NOTE
TLDR
It can now be affirmed that the virus of poliomyelitis cannot be very difficult of transmission to monkeys under the conditions leading to the development of the lesions and symptoms characteristic of epidemic poliomeelitis in monkeys.

PHYSIOLOGICAL STIMULATION OF THE CHOROID PLEXUS AND EXPERIMENTAL POLIOMYELITIS
The experiments recorded in this paper serve, in the first place, to confirm the experiments of Dixon and Halliburton on the stimulating effect of intravenous injections of extracts of choroid plexus
THE CONTROL OF EPIDEMIC POLIOMYELITIS
TLDR
Epidemic poliomyelitis has, since its appearance in 1907-08 along the Atlantic seaboard, extended over the entire United States, and the number of persons attacked can be only conjectured, but it is probable that it reaches into the thousands.
EPIDEMIC POLIOMYELITIS: ELEVENTH NOTE: RELATION OF THE VIRUS TO THE TONSILS, BLOOD AND CEREBROSPINAL FLUID; RACES OF THE VIRUS
TLDR
The virus has been detected in a larger number of situations in monkeys experimentally infected, and has been demonstrated in the nasal and pharyngeal mucosa, regional lymph-nodes after a subcutaneous inoculation, mesenteric nodes, salivary glands, and others.
On secondary transplantation of a sarcoma of the rat
TLDR
The results of this series of experiments bear upon the view expressed by Sticker, that a primary tumor protects the body from the development of a secondary tumor until the period of metastasis arrives, and upon Ehrlich's negative results in secondary transplantations of a rapidly growing mouse carcinoma.
