STERN, ALFRED:

German historian; born Nov. 22, 1846, at Göttingen, where his father, Moriz Abraham Stern (1807-94), was professor of mathematics (see "Vierteljahrschrift der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Zürich," 1894). Stern studied in the gymnasium of his native city, in Heidelberg, and in Berlin. From 1869 to 1870 he acted as assistant archivist in Carlsruhe, and two years later established himself in Göttingen as privat-docent in history. In 1873 he was appointed professor at the University of Bern, which position he held until 1887, when he accepted the chair of general history at the Eidgenössische Polytechnikum at Zurich.

Stern is the author of the following works: "Ueber die Zwölf Artikel der Bauern und Emige Andere Aktenstücke aus der Bewegung von 1525" (Leipsic, 1868); "Milton und Seine Zeit" (2 vols., ib. 1877-79); "Geschichte der Revolution in England" (1881, 2d ed. Berlin, 1898); "Abhandlungen und Aktenstücke zur Geschichte der Preussischen Reformzeit 1807-15" (Leipsic, 1885); "Das Leben Mirabeaus" (2 vols., Berlin, 1889); "Geschichte Europas seit den Verträgen von 1815 bis zum Frankfurter Frieden von 1871" (ib. 1894). He edited "Briefe Englischer Flüchtlinge in der Schweiz" (Göttingen, 1874); and, together with W. Vischer, the first volume of the "Baseler Chroniken" (Leipsic, 1872).
