Biography

Peter Tamm (12 May 1928 – 29 December 2016) was a German journalist and collector. His collection formed the basis for the founding of Hamburg's International Maritim Museum in 2008.

Early life

Tamm attended Gymnasium Eppendorf.

Career

Tamm began his career as an editor for naval themes at the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper in 1948. From 1970 to 1991 Tamm was chairperson of the board at the Axel Springer AG.

He collected militaria and model ships, among other things. From his collection, he founded the Wissenschaftliches Institut für Schifffahrts- und Marinegeschichte (Academic Institute for Shipping and Naval History) and later the Peter Tamm Sen. Stiftung foundation, which is the owner of the Internationales Maritimes Museum Hamburg.

Among others, Peter Tamm was criticised for his handling of Nazi symbolism. Some critics, like the German actor Rolf Becker, changed their opinions later. He died on 29 December 2016, aged 88.
