Ludwig Ganghofer (1855–1920)

Ganghofer, Ludwig (gäng’hōf-ėr). A German dramatist and novelist; born in Kaufbeuren, July 7, 1855; died in 1920. His first triumph in the drama was ‘The Sculptor of Oberammergau,’—written in collaboration with Hans Neuert. His other plays have been staged in all the European capitals. His novels steadily grow in repute; the most successful are: ‘It Was Once Upon a Time,’ and ‘Discontent.’ His volume of lyric poetry, ‘From the Tribe of Asia,’ attracted attention.
