Reimer Hansen (1853-1926), professor at the Oberrealschule in Oldesloe, Germany. Of simple rural origins, the gifted youth acquired a thorough edu­cation by study at the University of Kiel as well as by private study. His particular field was his­tory. Later he became famed for his research in the history of Schleswig-Holstein, and especially of his home Dithmarschen. For Mennonite history two of his articles, written with objective scholar­ship, are of significance: "Wiedertäufer in Eiderstedt" (until 1616) in the Schriften des Vereins für schleswig-holsteinische Kirchengeschichte, series II, vol. 2; "Menno Simonis in Holstein" in Die Heimat, 1907. For the Mennonitisches Lexicon he wrote an article on the Danish Prince Frederick.
