Dr. Oskar Klotz, pathologist and professor, was the son of Dr. Otto Klotz. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1902 and did post graduate studies in pathology at McGill. He lectured in pathology at McGill from 1907 to 1909 and in 1909 was appointed Professor of Pathology and Bacteriology at the University of Pittsburgh, Pa., where he remained until 1920. In 1921 he was sent to Brazil by the Rockefeller Institute to reorganize the department of Pathology at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and upon his return in 1923 was appointed Professor of Pathology and Bacteriology at the University of Toronto. He held this position until his death.
