Robert Schlapp — or ‘Robin’, as all his many friends called him, was born in Edinburgh on July 18th 1899 of German parents who had arrived and settled in Edinburgh in 1887. Robin’s father Otto Schlapp almost immediately gained a reputation teaching German and as soon as 1894 the University of Edinburgh established a lectureship for him and later a Department which he headed as the Professor of German until his retirement.
