Researches have been done about Baldur and his work from the legal correspondences with Birth Registration Office, Ministry of Health, Social Security Institution, together with National Library in various libraries, the Ottoman and the Republic archives of the Prime Ministry and the archives of Muğla municipality. The two books he wrote in the last year of medicine school (1918): Gerard. E. Lemoine’s French translation: “Müşavere-i Tıbbiye ve Cerrahiye” and “Principles and Youth of Vaccination “Gençlik Aşısı ve Esasları” inspired by Dr. Voronoff are Cemil Şerif’s less known printed books in Ottoman Alphabet.
