Born: 1872, Berlin, Germany. Died: 1926, Bremen, Germany.



Brother-in-law of R. Schlechter (see there). In 1892 he set out to Singapore, where he worked for some months in the German consulate; subsequently he went to Bindjei Estate (Deli, Sumatra East Coast), of which he finally became Head-Manager in 1912. In 1913 he returned to Germany, being appointed Director of a Tobacco Company.

Appendicula krauseana Schltr. was named after him.



Some Sumatra orchids.1 He probably sent the material to Schlechter, and it will have gone with the latter’s herbarium to Herb. Berl. [B].
