Karl VosslerKarl Vossler (6 September 1872, in Hohenheim – 19 September 1949, in Munich) was a German linguist and scholar, and a leading Romanist. Vossler was known for his interest in Italian thought, and as a follower of Benedetto Croce. He declared his support of the German military by signing the Manifesto of the Ninety-Three in 1914. However, he opposed the Nazi government, and supported many Jewish intellectuals at that time.
In 1897 he received his doctorate from the University of Heidelberg, and in 1909 was named a professor of Romance studies at the University of Würzburg. From 1911 onward, he taught classes at the University of Munich. Provided by Wikipedia
