|Contribution||With Grunbaum, discovered agglutination of Eberth-Gaffky bacilli only in serum of typhoid patients, supporting the alleged causation of typhoid by the bacilli.|
|Notes||Herbert Durham and Albert Grunbaum were working in von Gruber's laboratory. They forfeited credit for their discovery because they failed to publish it before Widal reported his agglutination test for typhoid (see Widal 1896). The bacilli were later named Salmonella typhi. This item could be put in the Immunology category (as is Widal's contribution) but Waller emphasizes its significance in establishing causation.|
