German dramatist, playwright, novelist and poet, one of the most important and prolific German writers of his time. The son of a hotelkeeper, he studied art in Breslau, Jena and Rome. After making a wealthy marriage in 1885, he wrote for theatre, achieving success in 1889 and some of his plays are still performed. Internationally famous and recipient of numerous awards, Hauptmann received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1912. His other works included tragedies, comedies, a travel book, novels and noted epic poems. After the 1920s his work declined in quality and popularity and politically he shifted from Social-Democrat to serving in the Nazi Regime under Hitler.

Source Notes

Original record said Taeger quotes Thomas Ring for 9:26 AM with no source given; In March 2008, Sy Scholfield quotes Warren R. Maurer's book, "Understanding Gerhart Hauptmann" (Univ. of South Carolina Press, 1992), p. 5: "Gerhard Johann Robert Hauptmann (at birth his first name was spelled with a final d) was born around noon on Saturday, November 15, 1862, ... his birthplace [was] the spa hotel Zur Preupischen Krone (Prussian Crown) in Ober-Salzbrunn, Silesia." The same data and approximate time is given in Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Behl & Felix A. Voigt's earlier book, "Chronik von Gerhart Hauptmanns Leben und schaffen" (Bergstadtverlag, 1957), p. 7: "Um die Mittagsstunde ["around noon"], am 15. November 1862 wurde Gerhart Hauptmann zu Ober-Salzbrunn im Hotel „Zur Krone" (später „Preußische Krone") geboren."
