Iwer Thor Lorenzen

Iwer Thor Lorenzen (1895–1976) was born in Harrislee Flensburg, Germany, and began his career as a teacher in 1914. While serving in World War I, he became acquainted with Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophy through a fellow soldier. After the war he returned to teaching and later took up special education. He set up his own school near Hamburg in 1949, where he remained until his retirement. Having worked as a volunteer in the Zoological State Institute in Hamburg from 1935 onward, Lorenzen was also a biologist who was revered for his love and knowledge of beekeeping, particularly among biodynamic farmers. He published his key work on beekeeping in 1938 and wrote another nine books, as well as numerous articles on the insect and animal world, metamorphosis, and evolution.
