FRIM, JAKOB:

Hungarian educator; born in Körmend May 1, 1852. On his return from a prolonged journey abroad, where he had studied the organization of various asylums for the insane, he opened in Rákospalota, near Budapest, a model institution, named "Munka," for the education of feeble-minded children. This institution was later transferred to Ofen, and was taken over by the state in 1898. His brother, Anton Frim, is known as the founder of an asylum for the deaf and dumb, which receives pecuniary support from the city of Budapest.
