Hermann Fischer (Gravestone)

German dialect researcher, lexicographer and son of the poet Johann Georg Fischer. As head of the Litterarian Association, he published numerous works, including those by Ludwig Uhland, Theodor Körner and Hermann Kurz as well as Swabian folk songs collected by Uhland and Georg Rodolf Weckherlin's poems.

In 1882 Adelbert von Keller transferred the continuation of his collection of the Swabian vocabulary to Fischer. In 1885 he took over the management of the Stuttgart Litterary Association from Keller, and in 1888 - after a six-year interlude by Eduard Sievers - he also succeeded Keller in the Tübingen Chair of Germanic Philology.

For Fischer, the publication of the collection of words in the form of the Swabian dictionary became a life's work, to which he devoted himself from 1883 until his death in 1920, but without being able to complete it himself. It was not until 1936 that the work of Wilhelm Pfleiderer, an employee of Fischer, was completed with the publication of the seventh and last volume.

Hermann Fischer married Julie Schmitz (1854–1936) in Stuttgart, and they had six children. He died on 30 October 1920 in Tübingen at age 69.
