The university of Zürich
ca. 1920

Breslau, Zürich

Since negotiations with the University of Vienna during Christmas of 1920 have failed, the Schrödinger's move to Breslau at the beginning of the Summer term 1921 with Erwin acting as ordinary Professor in theoretical physics paid out of special funds.

Although Schrödinger is very happy with his position and environment, he nonetheless writes to Stefan Meyer in Vienna on July 12, 1921: "Now listen: I will probably not stay in Breslau but move on to Zürich at the University there."
