Hendrik van den Driesch

Hendrik van den Driesch
Hendrik van den Driesch was born in 1919 in Mechelen, near Antwerp (Belgium).
He studied Sociology and Economics at the University of Ghent and then enrolled at the Imperial University of Strasbourg with the intention of obtaining a doctorate in Political Science.
However, the end of World War II prevented him from gaining his PhD. In 1943, he was appointed a lecturer for the Dutch Language and History at the same university. From 1944 to 1945, he was the entertainment officer for the Emperor Wilhelm Institute (today: the Max Planck Institute) in Heidelberg.
After the war, he was held briefly in Belgian captivity, afterwards moving to Tyrol. Because of his oral fluency and written proficiency in not only Dutch and German but also in French and English, he was employed at first as an interpreter for agencies of the American and French military governments, as well as working in a linguistic publishing house in Innsbruck.
In 1959, he moved to South Tyrol and founded the Italian branch office of Industrie-Vertrieb GmbH (a subsidiary company of AEG).
He was a member of the Alpine Rescue Service and a translator/interpreter for IKAR (the International Commission for Alpine Rescue).
