Bruce, I received this a while ago and now that I look at it, you might be interested in it. They found the remains of an old (16th century) tower near the school and that area was once a psychiatric clinic where Alois Alzheimer (Alzheimer’s disease) worked. Interesting,..

Hello Webbie,
 
perhaps you haven´t heared: they found a old Tower "Affenstein" on the area of the I.G.Farben / Abrams building while digging forthe "new university"  - I am looking for pictures of that little hill in the north/east corner (Lübecker Straße), a few Chestnut trees stood on top of this hill.(At the plan AfStK it is marked with "Affenstein Brunnen")
 
Before 1930 there was a psychiatric clinic on the area called "Affenstein", Heinrich Hoffmann, Emil Sioli and Alois Alzheimer, the finder of the Alzheimer’s disease, worked there. But I think the tower is much older - in a painting from 1552 the area was called "Affenstain".
 
Can you help me - I search for Pictures and further information about this part of the I.G.Farben building - I marked the position on the I.G.Farben plan.
 
And - in copy - I sent you the Email I wrote to the US Army historican Andrew Morris in Heidelberg:
 
 
Thank you and sorry for my bad english !
 
 
Greetings from Frankfurt/Main

Hello Webmaster,
 
if the Email address (above) is wrong - please send this Email to Dr. Andrew Morris - Thank you !
 
 
Hallo Dr. Andrew Morris,
 
thank you for your information about the former I.G. Farbenhaus /Abrams Building in Frankfurt.
Just a few months ago a historical tower was found on the area of the former US-Headquarter in Frankfurt.
This is the Link to the article in  "Frankfurter Rundschau" a local newspaper:
 
Affenstein:
 
I wrote a letter to that article:
 
I was looking for a roman road here from Frankfurt-Heddernheim (Nida/Civitas taunensium) to the roman bridge across the river Main - this road went through the area of the former US.Headqarter in Frankfurt and found a hill - I send you a map with this road and also the former psychatric clinic ("Irren-Anstalt") on the I.G. Farben-Area (1928) along with this Email.
 
Last not least - you can see me on a picture in the newspaper and talking about the history of Frankfurt/Main:
 
If  I have the time to visit you in Heidelberg - I will call you on the telefone - Thank you very much for your help !
The US-Embassy gave me the adress of John Provan - an historican here in Kelkheim near Frankfurt - perhaps he can help me.
 
If you have more informations for me - just call me 069 -390 481 00 or write a Email.
 
Thank you and sorry for my bad english !

The term "Affenstein," it has often been said, is a Avestein, a religious shrine, originate in this area.

Die »Anstalt für Irre und Epileptische«, seit 1914 »Städtische und Universitätsklinik für Gemüts- und Nervenkranke«, wird vor den Toren der Stadt Frankfurt erbaut. Hoffmann legt Wert darauf, dass die Kranken von Gärten und Feldern umgeben sind.
