Abstract

The fortuitous combination of genes that produces an unusually gifted individual was effected by Otto Hilbert and his wife Maria sometime in the spring of 1861; and on January 23, 1862, at one o’clock in the afternoon, their first child was born in Wehlau, near Königsberg, the capital of East Prussia. They named him David.
