Otto Carl Ludwig Eichhoff ( -1904)

1904 Obituary [1]

OTTO CARL LUDWIG EICHHOFF died at his residence at Sayn, Germany, on September 30, 1904. He was educated at Cologne, passing his final examination in 1859. After a year's practical experience in the Siegen iron ore mines, he studied at the Universities of Bonn and Berlin, and at the mining colleges of Berlin and Freiberg in Saxony.

His first appointment was as mining engineer at Wandre in Belgium. From April 1, 1868, he was occupied at Sayn with the general administration of the iron ore mines of Friedrich Krupp. He was subsequently a director of the Krupp firm, an office which he held until his death. He was also a member of the board of directors of the Orconera Iron Ore Company, Ltd., having been one of the original directors appointed in 1873. Of this company he was of late years managing director.

He was a member of the Coblentz Chamber of Commerce from 1894 until his death. He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1893. In 1902 he attended the London meeting at the request of his cousin, His Excellency F. A. Krupp, to receive from the President the Bessemer Gold Medal awarded to that eminent ironmaster, a presentation which he acknowledged in most graceful terms.
