Friedrich Dernburg (1833–1911)

Dernburg, Friedrich (dern’börg). A German journalist and descriptive writer; born in Mainz, Oct. 3, 1833; died in 1911. He was one of the companions of the German Crown Prince (now Emperor) in a trip to Rome, and later a well-known personality at the Columbian Exposition. ‘From the White City’ (1893), a series of World’s Fair Sketches; ‘In the Bonds of Guilt’ (1894); and ‘The Over Proud’ (1889), afford typical specimens of his fact and fiction.
