Overview

The 125th death anniversary of the famous internist Otto Kahler (1849–1893) offers an occasion to remind that, in the 19th and 20th centuries, his family with all roots of ancestors deeply taken in Bohemia enriched history of medicine with a line of five remarkable physicians in four consecutive generations. The first generation is represented by Otto’s father Josef Kahler (1810–1870), the fourth of fifteen children of a farmer in Großdorf near Braunau in northeast Bohemia. He graduated from Charles-Ferdinand University in Prague (1838), worked as a surgical intern and an assistant at Prague Maternity Hospital, as a docent (1844) he announced lectures on acology and desmaturgy (1844–1846). He then became a police and forensic physician (1845), since 1846 he acted as a wound physician at the Provincial Prison as well as Provincial Forced-Labor House and Reformatory until his sudden death during a session of a charitable society (1870) shortly before his son Otto graduated from the father’s alma mater (1971) to ripen into a pioneer personality whose name remains a lasting constituent of a synonym for multiple myeloma. Key words: Charles-Ferdinand University – genealogy – Joseph Kahler – Otto Kahler – Prague
