Biography/History:
Emil Zuckerkandl was the grandson of the anatomist Emil Zuckerkandl (1849-1910). During World War II he lived in Algeria with his parents, Fritz Zuckerkandl and Gertrud Zuckerkandl-Stekel, and his grandmother Bertha Zuckerkandl (1864-1945). He grew up speaking German but was a writer in French, as well as a translator from German to French. At this time his permanent residence was in France; however, in 1947 he was studying in the U.S., in Illinois (he mentions the study of physiology).
Summary:
A significant topic in both items is Zuckerkandl's French translation of Franz Werfel's story Eine blassblaue Frauenschrift, for which he was seeking a publisher. A number of informative references to Emil can be found in the correspondence of his grandmother; see under: Zuckerkandl, Bertha, 1864-1945.
