The art historian Karl With (1891-1980) was a professor, curator and museum director. He spent his early years in Bremerhaven, Germany, where his father was a renowned physician who had an interest in art. With entered university at Freiburg in 1910 to study literature, but he was uninspired by the learning atmosphere and the dominance of the fraternity system.
