One early, Europe-trained medical doctor to work in Tranquebar (Tarangampadi, 11°1'N, 79°50'E) near Tanjãvur, Southern India, was Samuel Benjamin Cnoll (1705-1767). Some articles refer to him as Knoll. He was trained in medicine in Halle, Germany, and recruited to work at the Royal Danish Mission, Tranquebar, from 1732 (ref. 1). Cnoll worked in Tranquebar until his death. Jensen indicates that Cnoll supervised the Royal Danish Mission Hospital, Tranquebar from the 1740s and published a short article on the preparation of borax in Acta Medica Hafniensis in 1753 (ref. 2) (note 1).
