Biography of Ilya Mark Scheinker
Ilya Mark Scheinker was born in Russia, educated in Latvia, studied in Jena, and then graduated at the University of Vienna. After nearly ten years of various registrar positions, he was appointed assistant professor at the Salpêtrière in Paris. He escaped from France shortly before the Germans took control of Paris. He worked in Cincinnati from late 1949 through about 1952, both as a neuropathologist and a neurologist. Then he moved to New York city, where he died of a heart attack a few months later.
