Carl Theodor Griesinger (1809–1884)

Griesinger, Carl Theodor (grē’zing-er). A German novelist and sketch-writer; born Dec. 11, 1809, in Kirnbach, in the Black Forest; died at Stuttgart, March 2, 1884. His first hit was made with ‘Silhouettes from Suabia’; and he founded the Suabian Humorist, only to meet ruin by the upheavals of 1848. After another attempt to establish a popular paper, and an ensuing term of imprisonment, he visited the United States. ‘Living Pictures from America’; ‘Emigrant Stories’; ‘The Old Brewery, or New York Mysteries of Crime’; and ‘Vatican Mysteries,’ were written upon his return home.
