Welz, Dr. Karl Josef (1887-1964)

Studienrat (Academic council) Dr. Karl Welz of Fulda collected coins and ancient art from the mid-1920ies to his death in 1964, building a collection of some 2,500 objects.

In 1965/1966 both parts of his collection were given to the newly founded Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Togther with Weiz' collection the University was given his papers, correspondence, bills, and archive. This rich collection of a collector's papers allows for a telling insight into provenance and Weiz' interaction with coin dealers over a period of more than 40 years.
