Theodor Friedrich Baltz (1785 - 1859) was an important regiment doctor in Berlin. Following his Latin dissertation on the treatment of inflammations of the conjunctiva he published a study on "Eye infections among the troops in the war years of 1813 - 1815" in 1816 under the motto "not new, but true". In his later years he dedicated himself to research into cholera.
