Austrian, American, both?[edit]

What are the guidelines in that respect? He moved to the US late in life and then later also became American citizen. Most of his life, and perhaps most of his research, was in Austria. Is this really best described as "American of Austrian origins"? Also, in the small box on the right, what are the guidelines?Elephas (talk)

Better structure[edit]

I suggest an improved structure of the article plus more details about Landsteiner's influence in medical research. --Hans555 16:19, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Possible Copyright Violation?[edit]

This article matches the official biography on the Nobel Prize website almost word-for-word. [1]. I've submitted it for review on the copyright problems page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:04, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

More details from the German Version[edit]

In good time I will transfer more details from the German Wikipedia, if nobody else does so in the next weeks. --Hans555 (talk) 10:52, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

I also exploited the standard bio by Paul Speiser.--Hans (talk) 08:42, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
