Peter Klein, born in Vienna, Austria, in 1931. Ph.D. from Erasmus University Rotterdam. Professor of Early Modern History at Leiden University. († 2014)
Fellow (1 February 1990 – 30 June 1990)
At NIAS I completed the English text of four chapters I was expected to contribute to a history of Unilever 1965-1990. As an offshoot to my study of Unilever from which some very interesting new resource material was obtained, I decided to do some research on the final stage of the Dutch decolonisation process in Asia.
