Character description

Otto Hauser (April 27/April 12, 1874, Wädenswil - June 19/June 14, 1932, Berlin) was a Swiss prehistorian.   He had no academic training and was poorly regarded, especially since he pursued archeology as a commercial venture.  He made himself highly unpopular in France by, in addition to being German, he leasing or buying land in the Vézère Valley and made a number of notable finds, which he sold to the Museum für Volkerkunde in Berlin.  In 1914, he was accused of being a spy and fled to Switzerland.   [from Trinkaus, The Neandertals]
