Froebel, Julius

Froebel, Julius, nephew of the above, was born in 1805. He made his mark first as a man of science, and became in 1833 Professor of Natural History at Zurich, where he published a treatise on crystallography. Holding strong democratic views, he promoted the Revolution of 1848, entered the Frankfort Parliament, accompanied Blum to Vienna, and was arrested. On his liberation he went to America, and subsequently settled in London, having been forbidden to return to Germany. He is the author of several works advocating Republicanism, but opposing Socialism, and has written an account of his American experiences.
