New York Obituaries - 1864 - Dr. Carl Theodore Meier
Dr. Carl Theodore Meier, one of our most eminent German physicians, died suddenly of congestion
on the brain on the 2d inst. He was born in Koenigsbergh, Prussia, in 1810, and studied at the
Universities of Greifswald, Gena, Goettingen, Halle and Berlin. He was then for some years assistant
physician to the world-renowned Dr. Dieffenbach, and published several essays on Surgery. In this
branch of medical science he excelled, and must ever be counted among the most prominent Surgeons
of the present age.
In 1848 he emigrated to this country, on account of the unsatisfactory condition of Germany, where he
had been a member of the National Convention and the Executive Committee of 50. It was not long
before he made his mark in this City as a physician of eminence. In 1859 he was chosen Surgeon of the
Bellevue Hospital, and in the same year appointed a Professor of the New York Medical College. As
such he is widely known among the profession, in particular for his eminent ability as a Surgeon.
