I believe this is the final page of my great-Uncle David Zinker's transcript for his doctorate of Chemical Engineering from the Deutsche Technical Hochschule. I'd be very grateful if anyone could take the time to translate the whole page. I'm especially interested to learn what his dissertation was on, and if there's any mention of what gymnasium or secondary school he attended prior.
