Search - List of Books by Fritz Spiegl

Fritz Spiegl (27 January 1926 - 23 March 2003) was born at Zurndorf, Austria, the son of an agricultural merchant and his Jewish wife. He became a musician, journalist, broadcaster, humorist and collector who lived and worked in England from 1939.

Born near Haydn's birthplace, and on Mozart's birthday, Spiegl was also a distant relative of the composer Gustav Mahler. In 1939, Fritz and his sister, neither of whom spoke English or knew anything of music, were sent separately to England. He was one of three children taken in by the Secretary of State for War Captain David Margesson and his American wife.

The Margessons taught Fritz English and sent him to Magdalen College School, near Banbury. At 15 years of age, Spiegl invented a model aeroplane which had another riding piggy-back upon it. The two were rigged together with a series of pulleys and elastic bands and, to his delight, the contraption could fly a short distance. The results were published in model aeroplane magazine. Thereafter Spiegl was hooked on the printed media.
