DUTOIT, Julius Franz Gustav

DUTOIT, Julius Franz Gustav. Darmstadt 13.3.1872 — München 17.6.1958. German Indologist (Pāli Scholar). Son of a teacher of modern languages. Catholic. Matriculated from the Gymnasium of Darmstadt in 1890. In 1890-93 studied classical philology at München, Giessen, and again München (also Indology under E. Kuhn). Ph.D. 1898 Erlangen. Gymnasium teacher in Würzburg 1893-94, in Dillingen 1894-95, and from 1895 in Speyer, later in Munich and finally Director of Riemenschneider Gymnasium in Würzburg (1929-34).

He is mainly remembered for his complete translation of the Jātaka commentary, but one is bound to ask, whether from Pāli or English. Instead of ‘Banyan’ he has ‘Banane’, which could be English wrongly read, but hardly from Pāli. Or did he (or his printer) misread his own handwriting?
