History / Biographical Note

History

Doctor Karel Steinbach was born on June 8,1894 in a small Czech village of Trebsko. He graduated from the famous Imperial and Royal Czech Secondary School in Prague. In 1913, he entered the Charles University but had to interrupt his studies. In 1915, he was drafted and went to the army in 1916. He finally became a doctor in 1920 when the war was over. While living in Prague, Doctor Steinbach became a friend of Jan Masaryk and Karel Capek, a famous Czech writer. All his life he belonged to Karel Capek's legendary circle and left a truthful testimony on Capek's last days. He first immigrated to the United States in 1939 and came back to Prague as an American doctor after the World War II. When he returned to New York for the second time, he was an American citizen and for a great number of years he was in charge of women recruits for the American Army. He died in New York on December 31, 1990.
