He conducted zoological investigations in British East Africa (present-day Uganda) in 1905, German East Africa in 1907, and in the Belgian Congo (1910–11).[1][2] In 1910 he was among the first Europeans to come in contact with the Mambuti. His African collections are housed at the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna.[3]
