Houston Stewart Chamberlain

Author Code: EHSC

Born: Sep. 9, 1855 - Southsea, Hampshire, England

Died: Jan. 9, 1927 - Bayreuth, Germany

Chamberlain's early education occurred in France and at Cheltenham College in England. He left school at fourteen due to ill health and received tutoring in Germany from a Prussian tutor. He then studied at the University of Geneva and in 1881 received a BSc from the University of Vienna. He then moved to Dresden where he became interested in the music and philosophy of Richard Wagner. By this time, Chamberlain had become more a German than Englishman and had also developed his theories of racial purity. In 1892, he published his first work, Notes on Lohengrin, an analysis of Wagner's drama. In 1899, he published his most famous work, The Foundations of the Nineteenth Century. a phenomenal success at the time and one in which his racial theories were further expounded, including his definition of the Aryan race. In 1908, Chamberlain married Wagner's daughter Eva and they moved to Beyreuth. He became a lynch-pin in German nationalism and was a favourite of Kaiser Wilhelm. During the First World War he became a German citizen and produced anti-British propaganda. Chamberlain's Foundations gave him widespread fame in Germany and would have an influence on the Nazi party. In 1923, Hitler and Goebbels visited him in Beyreuth and Hitler would continue his visits until Chamberlain's death in 1927. Chamberlain was much taken with Hitler and joined the Nazi party in its early days. His other works include The Dramas of Richard Wagner (1892), The Life of Wagner (1897), Immanuel Kant (1905), Words of Christ (1908), Goethe (1912), Wartime Essays (1914), Political Ideals (1915) and God and Man (1921).
