Bruno Stübel

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bruno Ernst Stübel (* 18 November 1842 Leipzig; † 28 November 1907 Dresden) was a German librarian.

Life

Stübel first received his education at the Polytechnic in Dresden from 1858 to 1860.[1] He studied history in Leipzig and received his doctorate there in 1867 with a thesis entitled: Das Chronicon Sampetrinum Erfurtense mit Benutzung der Dresdner und Göttinger Handschrift kritisch untersucht. His first examiner was Georg Voigt. Afterwards he worked as a volunteer at the Leipzig City Library, and from 1869 as an assistant at the Leipzig University Library. In 1874 he became a custodian there and in 1881 its director as librarian. It is probably due to this circumstance that Stübel also became the chairman of the Numismatic Society in Leipzig.[2] In 1887 he went to the Royal Public Library in Dresden, of which he became head librarian in 1897.

For Saxon regional history, Stübel remains unforgotten within the framework of the Codex diplomaticus Saxoniae regiae with the publication of the document book of the University of Leipzig 1409 to 1555. With regard to the older editions of documents on the history of the University of Leipzig, his importance can only be compared with that of Richard Georg Erler (1850-1913), to whom we owe the publication of the university register, and with the Germanist Friedrich Zarncke, who published the book of statutes of the University of Leipzig.

In 1907 he was awarded the Commander’s Cross 2nd Class of the Royal Saxon Order of Merit. He also received the title of Privy Councillor. Stübel died in Dresden in 1907 and was buried in the Trinitatisf cemetery.[3]
