Gottfried Wilhelm Becker (born in Leipzig, February 22, 1778; died there, January 17, 1854) was a German physician and writer.
He translated some of Cooper's novels and Le mie prigioni (My Prisons) by Silvio Pellico. By his literary labors he accumulated $40,000. His son Karl Ferdinand, an organist and writer on musical topics, added a house worth $7,000 to this sum, and the whole was dedicated to the establishment of an educational and charitable institution for the blind in Leipzig.
