Abstract:
Vladimir Glumac (1904 - 1960) has so far been completely unknown to the wider academic public, even though his work undoubtedly makes him one of the leading figures of Croatian radiation science. His field of expertise primarily covered X-ray examinations, including dosimetry of X-rays. Glumac performed one of the first projects to implement protection against X-rays (Zagreb Hospital Sisters of Charity, in 1931). Glumac was also active in popularising science, including radiation science. As a true visionary, he predicted that new devices associated with atomic technology would in the future enable the treatment of diseases that had resisted medical treatments for centuries. By searching through the available archives and known literature, we attempted to shed more light on the life and work of this distinguished expert and obtain a more systematic insight into the previously unknown details important for the history and development of radiation science, radiation protection, and medical physics. The work and opus of Vladimir Glumac show that scientists and experts who worked in Croatia not only followed the most advanced scientific knowledge in these areas from the very beginning, but also actively contributed to them.
