The important amount of documents available in the archive allows the definition of a complete biography of Paul Mauser with great details of his private life.Also interesting is the possibility of analyzing the relationship between Paul Mauser and his contemporaries. An important part of the Paul Mauser archive is composed by his diaries that provide a day-by-day description of the his life.It is not the aim of the authors to provide in the website a detailed biography of Paul Mauser as there are some accurate ones already available, some while the inventor was alive.However, a short introductory biography of Paul Mauser is provided. It is a translation of the Hans A. Krause article published on the 20th March 1931 by Der Ansporn. Although not fully detailed, it is a good introduction on the Paul Mauser life.A nice exercise has been done providing some links from the 1931 biography to the actual Paul Mauser diaries.
