|Contribution||Appointed, while unsupportive of germ theory, to a chair of hygiene at Munich.|
|Notes||This entry is included, not as an item of biography, but as an indication of the new status of hygiene (even among some who did not espouse the germ theory). Other such chairs soon followed. Some sources suggest Blackwell (Elizabeth) has priority for first chair.|
