Henrik Hetzel (1875-1949) was a student of the Hungarian Royal Veterinary Academy, later the Hungarian Royal Veterinary College between 1893 and 1897. We can see Leó Libermann’s signature at Chemistry, Béla Nádaskay’s signature at Anatomy and Ferenc Tangl’s signature at Natural Science in his lecture book. The term was signed by the director, Ferenc Varga. It is interesting that the marks can be seen only in the notes. Dr Henrik Hetzel did not leave the institituon even after his university years. He became the founder of the Department of Tocology in 1918. His detailed biography can be read in the Hungarian Veterinary Pantheon on the homepage.

Her detailed biography can be read in the Hungarian Veterinary Pantheon on the homepage.
