Romanian medical internist Iuliu Haţieganu took part in the 1936 Olympic Games in the Art Competitions in the architecture category with his work Sports Park King Carol II in Cluj. There is nothing known about his architectural career but only about his medical one. He was one of the pioneers in tuberculosis research. His brother Emil was a politician with high influences in Romania. Later the Cluj University of Medicine and Pharmacy was named after Iuliu, who was also one of the founders.
Iuliu Haţieganu studied medicine in Blaj and Cluj, and later became a professor at Cluj University. He knew about the importance of physical education in institutions of higher education. Therefore he organized thematic conferences, published a journal of education, and built a sports park in Cluj, whose plans were submitted to the 1936 Berlin Exhibition of Arts and 1936 Olympics. He managed to engage qualified and exceptional teachers for the education of his students. For a brief time he was appointed Minister of Health in 1931 in the Romanian Government.
