German linguist, folklorist and sociologist who was a member of the NSDAP (Nazi Party) and SS, where he was appointed Obersturmbannführer in 1941.

From 1942 he was personal advisor to the Bernhard Rust, Ministerial Director and Chief of the Ministry. In addition, in 1939 he was head of the Department of Folklore of the SS. In this context, he was accused of involvement in art robberies in Poland.

In 1944 he had to give up his political science positions, because his habilitation thesis was discovered to have plagiarized the work of a Jewish scientist, Wilhelm Jerusalem.

He died on 2 March 1994 in Burgwedel, aged 89.
