BÜRK, Albert

BÜRK, Albert. 18?? — 19??. German or Austrian Indologist. No Indological diss. in Janert, not a member of D.M.G. In 1901/02 he was in Tübingen, perhaps a student of Garbe. As the name is far from unique and without any personal information, one cannot say, whether the Indological and non-Indological publications are by the same man. One Albert Bürk wrote on German history in 1900/05. In 1923 Albert Bürk published a monograph about paedagogy of Isocrates, in 1927 about constitutional law. In 1953 Albert Bürk and Wilhelm Wille compiled the Tübingen University Matrikel.
