Alfred von Gutschmid

Hermann Alfred Freiherr (Baron) von Gutschmid (1 July 1835 – 2 March 1887), German historian and Orientalist, was born at Loschwitz near (Dresden).

He devoted himself to the study of Eastern language and history in its pre-Greek and Hellenistic periods and contributed largely to the literature of the subject. After holding chairs at Kiel (1866), Königsberg (1873), and Jena (1876), he was finally appointed professor of history at Tübingen, where he remained till his death.
