Emil Frommel (1828–1896)

Frommel, Emil (frōm’el). A German popular story-writer and theologian; born in Karlsruhe, Jan. 5, 1828; died on Nov. 9, 1896. He was a brave army chaplain, and turned out good sermons to the general edification; but ‘Tales for the People’ (9 vols., 1873–86), and similar collections of humorous and realistic compositions, will form his memorials in the future.
