[2]Heinrich Zangger
was
Extraordinary
Professor of Forensic Medicine and of
Physiology
at
the
University
of Zurich.
[3]Zangger
may
have
pursued
such
a
possibility
in
Paris
a
few months later
(see
Doc.
263).
[4]See,
for
instance,
the first
sentence
of Einstein
1911b
(Vol. 3,
Doc.
13),
in
which Einstein
thanks Zangger for
drawing
his attention
to
a
paper
by
William Sutherland.
[5]Zangger
probably
made Einstein's
acquaintance
six
years
earlier while
pursuing
an
in-
terest
in
molecular Brownian motion
(see
Doc.
27,
note 7).
[6]Zangger
gave
seven
hours of instruction
a
week
in
the Faculties of Medicine
and Vet-
erinary
Medicine of the
University
of
Zurich,
as
well
as
directing
its
Laboratory
of Forensic
Medicine
(see
Zürich
Verzeichnis 1910b,
pp.
11
and
13)
and
serving
as
Director of the
Physi-
ological
Institute
in
the
Faculty
of
Veterinary
Medicine.
In addition,
as a
forensic
expert,
he
was
expected to provide expert opinions
to
the
Zurich
courts (see
Kreisschreiben des
Oberge-
richtes, Canton of
Zurich, 30
October
1906, SzZSa, U 106
