Biographical/Historical note:
Dr. Bruno Zacharias Kisch (1890-1966) was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1890. He received his medical degree in 1913 at the Charles University of Prague and served in the Austrian army during World War I as a physician from 1914-1918. With the rise of Nazism, Kisch relocated to the United States in 1938 with his wife, Ruth, and their two children, Charlotte Rebecca and Arnold Emanuel. A colleague called him "one of the princely gifts that fell to America because of Adolph Hitler". In 1943, Kisch became a United States citizen.

Amongst his peers Kisch was credited as a "Da Vinci in a modern age" due to his wide range of interests. He was a founding member of the American College of Cardiology in 1949, and completed the first president's term upon his death in 1951. Kisch was elected as president in his own right at the end of the term and held the office of president from 1951-1953. From 1939 until 1966 Kisch had his own medical practice in New York City and was a researcher and consultant in cardiology. Kisch's major contribution to the field of cardiology was his experimentation with electron microscopes. He was the first scientist to use electron microscopes to perform cardiac research on warm-blooded animals. The microscope allowed researchers to study heart fibers more closely by magnifying cells by 30,000. Discoveries Kisch made through this research furthered the field of cardiology and led to the formation of the Electron Microscopic Institute in 1953.

The professorships he held at multiple schools, including Yeshiva University, in New York City, and Yale University, reflect his wide range of knowledge from physiology to the philosophy and history of science as does his consultation to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. on "the study of scales, weights, and measures", and his position as curator to the Edward Clark Streeter Collection of Weights and Measures at Yale University. Kisch's other interests can be found in the articles he wrote and the publications for which he served as founder/editor: "The Jewish Refugee and America"; "History of the Jewish Pharmacy (Judenapothek) in Prague"; "Scales and Weights – A Historical Outline"; "Shekel Metals and False Shekels"; Cardiologia; the Journal of Experimental Medicine and Surgery; and the Transactions of the American College of Cardiology. Dr. Bruno Z. Kisch passed away while visiting Germany in 1966. The Electron Microscopic Institute was dedicated in his memory in 1967.

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1940s-1988
Scope and Contents:
Primarily professional in nature, Pomerantz's correspondence is with friends and colleagues, museums and other art and educational institutions, and companies and corporations involved in the development of conservation tools and equipment.

Three folders of early career correspondence, primarily from the 1950s when Pomerantz was studying on the GI Bill, document Pomerantz's applications for jobs, apprenticeships, and work/study positions. They include correspondence with George Stout of the Worcester Art Museum, and Veterans Administration records.

The series includes six folders of correspondence with influential conservation scientist, Robert L. Feller, regarding technical issues and picture varnishes; seven folders of correspondence with forensic document examiner Linton Godown; three folders of correspondence with microscopy expert Walter C. McCrone; and correspondence with other art conservators including Anton J. Konrad, Russell J. Quandt, Bernard Rabin, Suzanne Sack, Nathan Stolow, Jean Volkmer, and Phoebe Dent Weil.

Also found is correspondence with companies including Eastman Kodak regarding radiography techniques; museums and other art institutions including the National Gallery of Canada, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Rijksmuseum, and Rosary College Graduate School of Fine Arts which operated a conservation program in Florence, Italy; and scattered correspondence with artists such as Janice Lefton de Luigi. Correspondence with the Smithsonian's SITES and participating institutions documents the 1980s Know What You See touring exhibition.

Correspondence relating to Pomerantz's work for the Art Institute of Chicago can be found in Series 5: Project/Client Files.

The series contains 2 sound recordings of television broadcasts on 2 sound cassettes.
Arrangement:
Records are arranged alphabetically by folder title, primarily by name but occasionally by subject such as "Early Career Correspondence." 5 folders of unsorted correspondence from the 1970s can be found filed under "U."
