LUZENBERG, Charles Aloysius, physician born in Verona, Italy. 31 July, 1805: died in Cincinnati, Ohio, 15 July, 1848. He was educated at Landau, and at Weissenburg college, Alsace, and in 1819 accompanied his father, who had been commissary in the Austrian army, to Philadelphia. He attended lectures at Jefferson medical college in 1825, removed to New Orleans in 1829, and became surgeon to the Charity hospital. He soon became well known in his profession, established the New Orleans medical school, of which he was the first dean, and founded the Society of natural history in 1839, and in 1843 the Louisiana medico-chirurgical society, being of both first president. In 1832-'4 he visited Europe, and was made a corresponding member of the Academy of Paris. He performed successfully many of the most difficult surgical operations, such as the extirpation of the parotid gland, the excision of six inches of ilium, and the tying of the primitive iliac artery. Dr. Luzenberg is also credited with being the first physician on this continent to prevent pitting in small-pox by exclusion of light.
