After graduation from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI; he continued his studies at Columbia University where he received a degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Shorty after leaving Columbia University he became a member of the staff of the bacteriological laboratories of the Dept. of Health of the City of New York. His first important work was on methods of improving the refining of diphtheria antitoxin. This was published in 1907. He became one of the Assistants Directors of the Laboratories in 1910.
Dr. Banzhaf was a scientist of the first order. He was modest and retiring in his disposition but made many warm and lasting friendships. His death is a very great loss to the laboratory in which he worked and to the people of this country. Not only those who were his colleagues but all workers in his field will miss him greatly.
