Diemer's birthday: it's today!

Oh my. I almost forgot, even though I'd left a note on the wine cabinet to  write something about it.

Today is the 104th anniversary of E. J. Diemer's birth on 15 May 1908 in Bad Radolfzell. There's been a lot written about Diemer, the good and the bad. His friend Georg Studier wrote the definitive biography. Gunter Müller wrote a little summary for me years ago, which I posted here previously. You can see it here.

Whatever you think, Diemer was one of a kind. Kinda like the BDG.

Happy birthday, EJD. Next year I'll remember to bring flowers.
