He was born in Požega on February 26, 1867, two years after his older brother Eugen, from Aleksandar and Emilija Gayer. In 1887, Aleksandar Gayer moved to Zagreb with his family, where he was enrolled in the Zavičajnik of the City of Zagreb as a “Royal alderman of the Courttable”. After graduating from high school Ladislav Gayer followed the contemporary educational tradition so he became a practitioner in Vinkovci in the Pharmacy K crnom orlu of Josip Kallivoda. Kallivoda bought it three years earlier from Julije Domac (1853 – 1928). After three years of practice in a pharmacy young practitioner Ladislav Gayer passed his internship exam at the Grammy of Pharmaceutical Society in Osijek in 1885. His education was continued in Zagreb, where his entire family moved.
