|Contribution||Distinguished between typhus and typhoid (such clinical refinement later becoming helpful in establishing the germ theory).|
|Notes||W. W. Gerhard. Settled the difference in a way that was influential, at least in U.S.A. He was a pupil of P.C.A. Louis, who described typhoid in detail in 1829.|
