Edmund Hauler (November 17, 1859, Buda – April 1, 1941, Vienna) was an Austrian classical philologist born in Ofen to a Danube Swabian German family. His father, Johann Hauler (1829–1888) was also a classical philologist.
Life and works
In 1882 he earned his doctorate from the University of Vienna, and was awarded the sub auspiciis Imperatoris (under the auspices of the Emperor). In 1885 he continued his education at the University of Bonn with Hermann Usener (1834–1905) and Franz Bücheler (1837–1908), and from 1885 to 1887 undertook study trips to France, England, Switzerland and Italy. From 1890 to 1893 he was a high school teacher in Vienna, and afterwards lectured at the University of Vienna, where in 1899 he became a full professor.
In his studies, Hauler discovered a number of valuable literary fragments by classical authors. In 1886 he published Neue Bruchstücke zu Sallusts Historien as a result of his discovery of fragments containing the histories of Sallust. He also uncovered new fragments by the dramatist Menander and the poet Sotades.
Beginning in 1897, he spent many years studying the Marcus Cornelius Fronto palimpsest, on which he authored over fifty articles. In 1899 he became editor of the magazines "Wiener Studien" and "Zeitschrift für die österreichischen Gymnasien". From 1925 up until his death in 1941, Hauler was chairman of the Vienna "Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum" (CSEL).
