Vienna Streets to Be Named After Two Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Streets Commission of the Vienna Council has decided to name two streets after the late Dr. Leon Kellner, who was Professor of English Literature at Czernowitz University, and after the late Professor Leopold Oser of Vienna University.

Professor Kellner who lived for many years in Vienna, where he was at one time Lecturer at the University, was a Shakespearcan authority. In his latter years he was political adviser on English and American affairs to Dr. Hainisch, when he was President of the Autian Republic.

Professor Kellner was a close friend of the late Dr. Theodore Herzl, who appointed him one of his executors. He was the author of a Herzl biography.
