About Schicks fellow in Jerusalem.

This is what I know about Ferdiand Palmer:

He was born in “Germany” 1817 – Schick was born 1822. They studied in Basel together and arrived in Jerusalem together.

Palmer is called “soap boiler and chemist” in an article.

In ITAC, Jerusalem Local Committes Minute Bok I, Nr 12, 1851 is written details about activities by its director Ferdinand Palmer. The school later bore the name “Bishop Gobat School” was build on the slope of Mt Zion near the south-western corner of the city wall. The building is outside the wall, close to the Protestant Cemetary, Zionsfridhof. Today the building serve as an American academic institution, Jerusalem University College.

His oldest son Paul Palmer became an Architect. Source
