Karl Joseph Eberth (1835-1926), a pathologist, served as Professor of Pathology at Zurich from 1869 and at Halle from 1881. While assisting Robert Koch in the latter's Berlin laboratory, Eberth was the first to describe a suspect rod-like bacillus ("Eberthella typhi") in a case of typhoid. (See also Gaffky.)
