Curtius (ko͝or'tē-o͝os), Ernst, was born Sept. 2, 1814, at Lübeck, Germany. He studied at Bonn, Göttingen and Berlin Universities. He made careful journeys in Greece, held several university professorships, and soon became noted as a writer on Greek history and geography. His great work, The History of Greece, is in the front rank of histories. Dr. Curtius was, late in life, professor at the University of Berlin. He died on July 12, 1896.
