Božo Težak (1907-1980), professor of physical chemistry at the University of Zagreb, was an outstanding scientist who made a great impact on the development of many research fields in Croatia, and who set up a number of institutions and scientific journals. Amongst many activities, he organised and headed the School for the Protection of Civilians for three years before the beginning of World War II. He maintained the view that only knowledge can protect people from many dangers related to war and other disasters. The School had a chemical laboratory, a library and lecture room, where a great number of civilians, students, and professionals obtained specialised education. In 1947, the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts (at that time the Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts) founded the Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health based on the initiative of professor Andrija [tampar, Academy’s president at that time. The Institute was given the building and equipment of the School, and began a broad-scale research and education on chemical and physical agents potentially dangerous to human health.
