Biography

Austrian Theodor Mayer was a historian who worked in various Austrian archives. He studied history at the Universities of Firenze and Wien (Vienna). Until World War II, he was a lecturer at the University of Wien and a history professor at the German University in Praha, Czechoslovakia. He was known for his close relations with Nazi leaders. At the end of the war he tried arbitrarily to bring several important archives mainly from Italy to safety in North Italy.

After the war, Mayer was sentenced to the Hammelburg Camp as a Nazi supporter. He later built up one of the most important non-university research projects of Medieval History in Konstanz, although he was not allowed to work further as a history professor.
