17 Historical review Acta clin Croat 2001; 40:332 Historical Review 332 Acta clin Croat, Vol. 40, No. 2, 2001 HISTORICAL REVIEW Founded 1846 Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Professor Vladimir Hudolin was longstanding head of the Department of Neurology and Psychiatry at Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital, Zagreb. From 1959 until his retirement in 1987, he developed rich scientific and professional activities, especially in the field of social psy- chiatry and alcoholism.
