Kiel professors from 1919 to 1965

Welcome to the Directory of Scholars of the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel

The Kieler Gelehrtenverzeichnis (Kiel Directory of Scholars) is managed by the Regional History Department at the Institute of History, together with the Scientific Computing and Research Data Department at the CAU’s Computing Centre.

Kiel Directory of Scholars - Professors from 1919 to 1965 is an online collection of biographical data on all Kiel University professors who taught at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität between 1919 and 1965.

Since May 2010, the Department of Regional History of the Historical Seminar has been working on the detailed reconstruction of life and career histories on the basis of in-depth archive research. There are currently 5,351 people, including more than 1,150 professors, in the directory. The period from 1919 to 1965 represents the current focus of the work. The catalog entries contain information on the biography, the academic profile and the social activities of the Kiel professors.

The project was successfully published in 2015 as part of the 350th anniversary of the University of CAU. Since then, scientists and the interested public have access to information on the scientific profiles and social activities of a total of 12,000 professors from Kiel. The project is supported by the University Library Kiel and currently by the computer center of the CAU. Within the project the interdisciplinary cooperation between history and computer science is successfully tested. Kiel Directory of Scholars is the bearer of the Kai-Uwe von Hassel Förderpreis 2017.

Please note that the data on which this website is based is still being worked on. Additions to persons who have not yet been fully processed are added continuously.
