German diplomat who succeeded the murdered Baron Clemens von Ketteler as German ambassador in Beijing in 1900.

Mumm studied law at Göttingen University and entered the diplomatic service afterwards. He served in London (1885), Washington D.C. (1888), Bucharest (1892–93), Rome (1893–94), Luxemburgh (1898) and again in Washington (1899). During his years in China, he dealt with the Boxer Rebellion and signed The Boxer Protocol on 7 September 1901 on behalf of Germany, maintained an extraordinarily good relation with Empress Dowager Cixi, and took many pictures of China in the 1900s as an amateur photographer. From 1909 to 1911, he was ambassador of the German Reich in Japan. He retired in 1911, but was returned to work in 1914 in Berlin. In March through November 1918, he represented the German Reich in Kiev.

He died in Portofino, Italy on 10 July 1924, aged 65.
