Karl Geiger (1891)


German Protestant theologian and librarian who headed the University Library in Tübingen from 1895 to 1920. During his tenure, the library expanded both in terms of personnel and in its book inventory through the expansion of exchange relationships and the purchase of extensive private libraries, so that the number of volumes available almost doubled.

In 1881 Geiger married Sophie Kratz (1862-1953) and they had six children. He died on 29 June 1924 at age 69 in Tübingen.
