On January 25, 1944 the Reichspost issued a stamp to honor 100th Anniversary of the birth of Robert Koch (1843-1910), a German physician and one of the founders of bacteriology and microbiology. Robert Koch was born in Clausthal, Hanover, Germany, on 11 December 1843. He excelled in academics from an early age. Before entering school, he taught himself how to read and write at the age of five. He loved to read classical literature and was a chess expert. He gained an interest in science while in high school, and decided to study biology. Koch acquired his medical degree from the University of Göttingen, Germany in 1866 and spent the next decade as a physician in various hospital and government research posts.
