Summary

Friedrich Kottler (1886-1965), Kodak Research Laboratories consultant in physics, holds a document from the University of Vienna, which renewed his original doctorate. The new diploma, in Latin, reads: "Following the proposal of the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Vienna, the Rector and Senate are pleased to renew this title of Ph.D. conferred by his former diploma to Friedrich Kottler, who first introduced into the general theory of relativity the operations which are called 'general Ricci calculus,' fifty years after he twelfth of July 1913." Kottler's mathematical calculations had been incorporated then into Albert Einstein's physical theory, which Einstein acknowledged at the time.
