Frederic Lewy
The details

Frederic Henry Lewey (born Friedrich Heinrich Lewy, January 28, 1885 – October 5, 1950) was a prominent Jewish German-born American neurologist. He is best known for the discovery of Lewy bodies, which are a characteristic indicator of Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.

Lewy was born in Berlin, Germany on January 28, 1885. He trained in Berlin and Zürich and graduated from Berlin in 1910. Lewy worked in Alois Alzheimer's Munich laboratory and was contemporary with Hans Gerhard Creutzfeldt (1885–1964), Alfons Maria Jakob (1884–1931) and Ugo Cerletti (1877-1963). He later fled Nazi Germany and moved to the United States. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1933, and died in Haverford, Pennsylvania on October 5, 1950, aged 65.
