Oskar Baudisch (1881-1950), Austrian-US chemist. Baudisch was awarded his doctorate in chemistry from the University of Zurich in 1904. By 1907, he was working at the University of Manchester with Perkin, later working in the dyeing industry. Baudisch also studied radiography. After World War I, he moved to the USA and taught photochemistry at Yale University. In the 1920s and 1930s, he studied trace minerals in water and soil, and from 1933 was head of the New York State Institute of Balneology and Hydrotherapy. The Baudisch reaction in organic chemistry is named for him. He drowned while investigating trace elements in the sea off California.
