Kurt Hühn

Arch Ophthalmol. 2011;129(3):371. doi:10.1001/archophthalmol.2011.32

Born in Zagreb, Kurt Hühn (1875-1963) trained in Vienna and then returned to Zagreb in 1900 where he practiced ophthalmology at the Sisters of Mercy Hospital, becoming the Director of the hospital in 1935, a post he held until his retirement in 1945. One of the first to use x-ray equipment in Croatia, he also published extensively in Croatian medical journals.

In 1925, a lifetime portrait medal by the Croatian artist Ivo Kerdić of 61 mm diameter was struck in bronze to honor Hühn for 25 years of medical service. The obverse depicts Hühn's bust facing right. The reverse depicts Hühn on the left operating on the eye of a young female patient who is seated on the right.
