Biographies

This is the beginning of a collection of biographical essays / life stories / eulogies. Many such sketches have been written in the German language in early periodicals or tucked into books focused on other matters. It’s our intent to make them more visible/accessible in this project.

We welcome submissions from our readers, researchers, and visitors.
