Branko Šljivić

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Branko M. Šljivić (Belgrade, Kingdom of Serbia, 6 June 1895 - Belgrade, Serbia, Yugoslavia, 14 November 1963) was a doctor of medicine, professor of anatomy at the University of Belgrade Faculty of Medicine.[1]. He is best remembered as the first scientist to conclude in the 1930s that the Serbs are indigenous and autochthonous people of the Balkan lands where they currently occupy not only from the seventh century but long before that time.


Today Branko Šljivić is considered one of the pioneers of Serbian anthropology because as an anatomist he was the first to deal with the anthropological processing of human remains originating from archeological excavations. In particular, at the invitation of Nikola Vulić, who led the research work on Trebenište, Šljivić processed human bones from devastated tombs and came to conclusions about the incomplete funeral, certain diseases, life expectancy, etc.[citation needed]

According to the "International Handbook of Universities" and SANU, he became a full professor at the Faculty of Medicine in Belgrade in 1946, and dean from 1948 to 1950 and 1957 to 1958 of that faculty. He was also rector of the Medical Velike škole from 1952 to 1954. He was elected a corresponding member on 30 January 1958 at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SANU).[2]
