Klemperer, Paul


KLEMPERER, PAUL (1887–1964), U.S. pathologist. Born in Vienna, Klemperer studied law but transferred to medicine. In 1923 he went to the New York Postgraduate School of Medicine and three years later was appointed pathologist to New York's Mount Sinai Hospital. Klemperer's careful research into microscopic patterns led to the understanding of several diseases. His research was in lymphomas and the structure of the spleen. With co-workers, he described the pathology of malignant nephrosclerosis and a variety of newly recognized diseases of blood vessels, alimentary tract, and the hematopoietic system. The culmination of his research was the recognition of the significance of altered intermediate substances in systemic connective tissue disease.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
