Julius Carl Ertel held a special position as director and later as sole owner of a copper smelter in the commercial and trading city of Hamburg. Born in Wroclaw, he came to the Hanseatic city at the age of 26. Together with Rudolph Bieber, he founded Ertel, Bieber & Co. in 1872. The company had its facilities in the middle of the harbour area. However, Ertel gained its decisive importance through the extensive connections he made with numerous other companies throughout Germany.

Abstract

How to become a Hanseatic? What made someone a (Hamburg) Patriot? Why was it not possible for a high-shool graduate to study in Hamburg before 1918? How was it possible that catastrophes in the 19th century led to modernisation in Hamburg? This publications will answer to questions like these.Around 1850 Hamburg underwent radical changes. Werner von Melle, born in 1853, played an active and forming part in the history of the city as a solicitor, senator, and mayor. Being the first president of the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung, he devoted himself to the foundation of the University of Hamburg.This first part of his biography deals with the complex relations between the man and the city.
