German-American astrologer credited with successfully introducing an American form of the Uranian system. NCGR's first lifetime Honorary Member, he was also a gifted speaker.

Niggemann was a student and coworker of A. Witte and an enthusiastic opponent of Cosmobiology and R. Ebertin. In 1959 he translated without authorization the "Regelwerk der Planeten" of A. Witte into English. This caused a dramatic copyright quarrel with Rudolph. His books include "The Principles of Uranian Astrology" and "Key to Uranian Astrology."

Niggemann died on 9/1/1985, 6:00 AM, Bronx, NY.
