Experience in thick equatorial jungles. Or in thorn bush jesse pretty much anywhere in Africa.

Also perhaps those very long rifle barrels on military rifles were perhaps becoming a thing of the past in the start of the Twentieth Century colonial era. IMO a left over from the long BP rifles and muzzle loaders of the past.

Very nice photographs and artwork. I like the pen & ink and the charcoal drawings - that is very nice artwork.

not what it seems to be: Robert Koch(rigth) and Friedrich Karl Kleine dissect a croc 1906 on the Ssese islands in lake victoria looking for the patogen of the sleeping sickness

Yes a very different photo. A medical scientific colonial era photo. Looking for sleeping sickness inside a crocodile. Would never have thought of looking for sleeping sickness in a croc.

What is the cause of sleeping sickness? Isn't it Tsetse flies? I assume they bite infected creatures and pass on the disease to humans?


A good photo for these times.

There is a good movie on Schweitzer in colonial times in Africa.

Two German scientists on the shores of Lake Victoria in 1906; somewhat unusual?
Not really because Tanganyka (now Tanzania), Burundi and Rwanda were part of the German East Africa colony, from 1885 until 1919. Following WW1's outcome, Tanganyka was administrated by the British and Rwanda & Burundi by the Belgian.

Yes of course. The lands around Lake Victoria were known as a fever country, malaria and sleeping sickness.

The Tsetse fly has had some benefits. It has benefited wildlife in some regions, and meant cattle could not overpopulate such regions replacing wildlife. Botswana was one such country. Widespread aerial spraying was used to try to remove the tsetse flies. To allow increased cattle ranching.

"Friedrich Karl Kleine joined the Prussian Army as a medical officer and came to the Institute for Infectious Diseases in Berlin, headed by Robert Koch, on January 15, 1900. As a medical officer, he took over the management of the infection department at the Institute for Infectious Diseases in 1901. He accompanied Koch from 1906 to 1907 on his research trip on sleeping sickness in German East Africa. He later traveled to the Belgian Congo. In Rhodesia he married his assistant Hanna Okelmann, who had worked as a laboratory assistant at the Koch Institute for years. From 1908 to 1914, Kleine directed the fight against African trypanosomiasis in German East Africa. Initially he worked in the eastern and north-eastern outskirts of Lake Victoria (Mwanza and Musoma). He also repeatedly examined the northwestern area around Bukoba. Finally, Kleine moved his main area of ​​work to the region around Lake Tanganyika because there were clearer signs of the existence of sleeping sickness. In 1911/12 he suggested the establishment of a microbiological institute in the Imperial Hospital (later Ocean Road Hospital and from 1996 "Ocean Road Cancer Institute") in Dar es Salaam, which was also established there in 1912. In April 1914 he took over sleeping sickness research in Cameroon. He was drafted into the protection force and temporarily served as chief physician there. At the same time, he acted as medical advisor to the governorate when the regular job holder Heinrich Werner was taken prisoner by the British. Kleine transferred to the neutral Spanish territory (Rio Muni) together with the command of the protection force in February 1916 and was interned in Madrid until the end of the war. The sleeping sickness researcher Karl Rösener, who was also interned in Spain, also worked with him in Cameroon.
Mostly Friedrich Karl Kleine, like his teacher Robert Koch, worked in the area of Lake Victoria and then in the region around Lake Tanganyika. His closest confidant in matters of sleeping sickness was the former military doctor Max Taute (later professor), who played a major role in researching sleeping sickness in East Africa. Under the guidance of Kleine, the first bacteriological institute was set up at the German hospital in Dar es Salaam in 1912, which, however, lost its importance for tropical medicine during the British colonial period. This old laboratory still exists at today's Ocean Road Cancer Institute as part of German-Tanzanian cancer research and control in Tanzania."
