Adnan Adıvar: Abdülhak Adnan Adıvar was a Turkish politician, writer, historian, and by profession a medical doctor. He has done original research and written on history of science. He was also an early supporter of the nascent feminist movement. He was one of the intellectuals within Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's circle, active in the Turkish War of Independence with his wife, the author Halide Edip Adıvar. He avoided arrest from occupying British in Istanbul, who were making a sweep of all Ottoman intellectuals and deporting to Malta at the end of World War I, by joining the Kemalist forces in Anatolia. Later he parted ways with Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, disagreeing with the new direction young Republic was taken. He opposed the powers given to Atatürk by the parliament, fearing he was going to be a dictator, this would eventually materialize. He joined the short-lived opposition party "Terakkiperver Cumhuriyet Fırkası", and his name was later associated with an attempt on Atatürk's life in 1926 while he was abroad. Even though he was cleared, he stayed in exile until 1939.Graduated from the Medical Faculty in 1905, Adıvar left for Berlin to be specialized in internal medicine.
