a.k.a. Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz

Author Code: GHVH

Born: Aug. 31, 1821 - Potsdam, Prussia (Germany)

Died: Sep. 8, 1894 - Charlottenburg, Germany

Much of Helmholtz's early education was provided by his father. a teacher at the Potsdam Gymnasium. In 1838, he began medical studies at the Friedrich Wilhelm Medical Institute in Berlin on the basis that if he served eight years as an army doctor, his schooling would be free.After graduating in 1843, he was assigned to a regiment in Potsdam. He was not kept very busy by the army and it was obvious that his scientific abilities would be better served in a scientific environment and he was released from the army after only four years. In 1848, he was appointed assistant at the Anatomical Museum and lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin. In 1849, he moved to Konigsberg to be assistant professor and director of the Physiologiocal Institute. In 1855, he moved again, this time to become professor of anatomy and physiology at the University of Bonn. In 1858, he took a similar position at Heidelberg. Finally, in 1871, he achieved his ambition to move away from medicine and into his true calling, that of physics, when he became professor of physics at the University of Berlin. In 1882, he was elevated to the nobility and in 1888 appointed first director of the Physico-Technical Institute at Berlin, a position he continued to hold until his death. Helmholtz invented the ophthalmoscope and the ophthalmometer in 1851 and in 1856 published Handbook of Physiological Optics. A talented teacher, Helmholtz could name among his students Heinrich Hertz, the discoverer of radio waves.Helmholtz's many works include Correlation and Conservation of Forces (1867), Popular Lectures on Scientific Subjects (1873-81), On the Sensations of Tone as a Physiological Basis for the Theory of Music (1875), Uber die Erhaltung der Kraft (1889) and Uber Goethe's Naturwissenschafliche Arbeiten (1889).
