Abstract

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. In the supervisory boards of these companies, he played an active role in building up the expanding economy of the Gründerzeit. Ertel was not a man who pushed himself into the foreground. This early donor of the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung acted as a networker in the modern sense of the word

Abstract

Heinrich von Ohlendorff became one of Hamburg's richest merchants by trading with Peru-Guano. Together with his wife Elisabeth he founded a family of twelve. In 1880, Elisabeth began to write her diary. Until her death she filled 45 obese notebooks with astonishing regularity. The approximately 20,000 pages provide exciting insights into the life of an up-and-coming family that is firmly integrated into the society of Hamburg's upper middle classes. The pages make it possible to portray Heinrich von Ohlendorff in the mirror of his wife's diaries. At the same time, it is possible to draw a fascinating panoramic picture of the "fine" Hamburg society at the beginning of the 20th century. This is the first biography of this merchant from Hamburg who was one of the donors of the Hamburg Scientific Foundation.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator

Abstract

As founders of the Blohm & Voss-Werft, Hermann Blohm and his partner Ernst Voss have gained importance far beyond Hamburg. By giving the company international recognition, he made a major contribution to the city's enormous upswing as a port and industrial location after 1877. In Hanseatic restraint, the patriarchal shipyard manager who managed his company with determination and rigour as a family-owned company, stepped back completely behind his work. After considerable initial difficulties, the shipyard expanded into a large enterprise. The ups and downs of the shipyard's history reflect the development of Germany in the Weimar Republic between the Wilhelminian era, the quest for power, the First World War, revolution and a new beginning. At the same time and primarily, this history comes alive in the biography of Hermann Blohm, who was also one of the donors of the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung (Hamburg Scientific Society).

Abstract

Ernst Friedrich Sieveking is one of the outstanding personalities in Hamburg's history. He showed special talents at an early age, so that he was already a fully trained lawyer at the age of 21. He then joined a renowned law firm which he managed successfully for many years on his own. In 1879 Sieveking was appointed the first president of the newly founded Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in 1879. Until his death, for thirty years, he remained president of the Court of First Instance, which earned him a high reputation as an expert on maritime law. In addition, he was actively involved in the founding of Hamburg University, which is why he was also a member of the first board of trustees of the Hamburg Scientific Foundation. Surrounded by three representative buildings, the Sievekingplatz in Hamburg still reminds us of him to this day.

Abstract

The brothers Augustus Friedrich and Gustav Adolph Vorwerk deserve a closer look at their biographies not only because of the generosity with which they supported the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung (Hamburg Scientific Foundation) as donors, but also because of their commercial activities. Together with their father Georg Friedrich Vorwerk - who founded companies first in Hamburg, then in Chile - they pushed forward the Hamburg and Chilean economies. In the suburbs of Klein Flottbek and Nienstedten, the father and the two sons Vorwerk had stately villas built, which to this day are among the remarkable buildings of Hamburg.
