Data on Professorengehälter
As part of the DFG-financed Project Die Entwicklung der Professorengehälter in Deutschland im 20. Jahrhundert, I have gathered data on professorial salaries in Germany. The data can be obtained via the site of the article, which can be found here.
I thank the German Research Foundation for funding of this project and the visited university archives for their friendly support.
