Hide Profile

BIOGHIST REQUIRED Lienhard Bergel (1905-1987) was born in Silesia, Germany, and emmigrated to the United States in 1931, where he obtained a position as Instructor in the German Department of the New Jersy College for Women. In 1935 he was refused reappointment because, he claimed, his anti-Nazi views conflicted with those of the Department Head, Johannes Friedrich Hauptmann. The matter was investigated by a special committee of Rutger's University in 1935 and again in 1986. Both panels found the discharge of Bergel justified. Bergel later went on to teach at Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (1938-1974). His writings include Cervantes in Germany ; Croce, Blake, Goethe ; and The Esthetics of Nihilism .
