Carl Schmidt

Carl Ernst Heinrich Schmidt;Karl Genrikhovich Schmidt

1822 (Mitau, Prussia, now Jelgava, Latvia) – 1894 (Dorpat, Russia, now Tartu, Estonia)

Schmidt studied with Rose and Müller in Berlin before becoming one of Liebig’s research students. He then worked for a year with Wöhler. The older Bidder was Schmidt’s great collaborator; although they didn’t work together again after publication of their great double study of digestion and metabolism, they remained university colleagues and good friends.
