Biography Erwin Baumann
Erwin Friedrich Baumann (* October 27, 1890 in Berne; † February 8, 1980 ibidem.) was a Swiss architect and sculptor.
Erwin Friedrich Baumann was born in 1890 in Berne as the second of four children of the master builder and politician Friedrich Baumann (1835-1910) and Marie-Louise Baumann-Bigler (1856-1937). Right before starting school he got diphtheria, and the medical treatment at Rotbad (Diemtigtal) led to severe problems at school. Baumann wrote in one of his biographical notes: "With the lowest quarter of my class I managed to get into the high school and may as well have slipped into the lecture-halls of the universities." Because of obstinacy towards one of his teachers, Baumann had to leave the high school.
