Honours

Knight of the Order of Saint Stanislaus, 3rd class (Russia)

Biographical

The son of a carpenter, Schams was a pharmacist, winegrower, historian, and writer.  He began studies in pharmacy at the University of Prague, and by 1802, he resided in Petrovaradin, possibly though the military as a pharmacist or through the pharmaceutical material wholesale dealer Wilhelm Franz Nattorp.  As his business prospered, he opened a branch in Sremski Karlovci in 1806, and another in Zemun in 1808 which he sold a short time later.  He then sold his pharmacy in Karlovci in 1812.  He sold the remainder of his business in Petrovaradin in 1818, abandoning his profession, and moving to Pest.  He devoted himself to viticulture and became the country's first viticultural scientist, setting up the first vineyard there.  In 1830, he founded a winemaking school.  He was an acclaimed writer and published topographical and technical books, the latter relating to viticulture and livestock, and wrote for both Hungarian and German viticulture publications.
