Carl L. Nippert (1903)


German-American engineer and politician, who served as the 26th Lieutenant Governor of Ohio in 1902.

Nippert studied engineering at the universities of Karlsruhe, Germany, and Zürich, Switzerland. After finishing his studies in 1874, he started working as an engineer in Frankfurt, Germany. In 1876 he migrated to the United States to work on the construction of the world fair in Philadelphia.

Nippert worked as a school teacher (1877–1889) and principal (after 1891) in Cincinnati. During this time he advocated the German language. He graduated from Cincinnati Law School. In 1891 he became a lawyer. Eight years later he became a member of the Ohio State Senate for the Republican party.

In 1901, Nippert was elected Lieutenant Governor of Ohio. He began his term January 1902. A vacancy opened for the Hamilton County Probate Judge, and Governor Nash appointed Nippert to the seat on 1 May 1902. He was elected to a three-year term on the court in 1903.

Nippert married Elsie Hitscherich of Karlsruhe, and later married Katie Brill of Cincinnati on 25 July 1889. They had one daughter, who died in childhood. Nippert died of heart disease on 5 September 1904, aged 51, in Clifton, Cincinnati, Ohio.
