In summary from the page: 

Dr. Alec Eden (of Eden Medical Electronics, a pioneering firm in the field
of transcranial Doppler ultrasound) became interested in the history of
Christian Doppler and has done extensive research on his life and work.
Much of his work is presented in his book The Search for Christian Doppler
(Springer, 1992).  In 1985 he presented a lecture at the Bowman Gray School
of Medicine called "Doppler the Man".  Five years later, on February 16,
1990, he presented an updated version of the lecture which he called
"Doppler Revisited".  The link below will take you to a 2 minute excerpt
from that 1990 lecture in which he discusses his discovery from baptismal
records in Salzburg that Doppler's actual full name was Christian Andreas
Doppler (not Johann Christian or Christian Johann as stated in most medical
and general encyclopedias). 

In 1988 Dr. Eden was appointed by the State Government of Salzburg as the
first president of the Christian Doppler Foundation there.
