Birth: Sep. 14, 1872
Death: Sep. 14, 1930

He was naval attaché to German Ambassador to the United States Johann Heinrich von Bernstorff during World War I.
He was born into a merchant family in Lübeck and entered the navy at a young age. He was a protégé of Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz. He was sent to the U.S. in 1911 and worked closely with Franz von Papen (later Chancellor of Germany) in establishing a spy and sabotage ring to prevent the U.S. from sending aid to the Allies.
He was expelled from the U.S. in 1917. Back in Germany, he served in the navy press department. After the war, he married an American woman and settled in Hamburg. He died as the result of a horse-riding accident at the age of 58.
