LIMBERG, MD (1894-1974), the son of 2 dentists, graduated from the Petrograd School of Dentistry in 1916 and received his medical degree from the Military Academy of Medicine in 1919. He created the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery at the Leningrad Stomatological Institute and remained its department head until 1950.
