Bernhard Rawitz (1857-1932)

Bernhard Rawitz (23 August 1857, Ostrowo - 28 December 1932) was a German military physician, anatomist and zoologist.

He studied medicine at Kaiser Wilhlem Akademie in Berlin, afterwards serving as a military doctor in Metz (1880–83). He later worked at the zoological stations in Naples (1887–88, 1890) and Rovigno (1892-1898). In the late 19th century he journeyed to northern Norway (Tromsø, Sørvær, Trollfjord, Bear Island), where he performed studies of cetaceans.[1]

In 1889, he qualified as a lecturer of comparative anatomy, and in 1912, was appointed an associate professor to the museum of pathology at the University of Berlin.[2]
