Henry Crabb Robinson (1775 — 1867). British diarist. Born at Bury St. Edmunds, was articled to an attorney in Colchester. Between 1800 and 1805 he studied at various places in Germany, and became acquainted with nearly all the great men of letters there, including Goethe, Schiller, Herder, Wieland, etc. Thereafter he became war correspondent to the Times in the Peninsula. On his return to London he studied for the Bar, to which he was called in 1813], and became leader of the Eastern Circuit. Fifteen years later he retired, and by virtue of his great conversational powers and other qualities, became a leader in society, going everywhere and knowing everybody worth knowing. He died unmarried, aged 91, and his Diary, Reminiscences and Correspondence, which stands in the forefront of its class, was published in 1869. ~ Biography ~ Works on Wikisource
