Hans Zinsser: a tale of two cultures

Hans Zinsser: a tale of two cultures

Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine 72(5): 341-347

Hans Zinsser, president of the Society of American Bacteriologists in 1926, was known as much for his literary and textbook writing as for his scientific contributions. He was a widely known scientist and person of letters. His early interests in poetry and other forms of literature were maintained and developed during his career as a microbiologist, and his most enduring legacy is based on his writing about microbiology for a general readership as well as his reflective and philosophical autobiography.
