Émile Brugsch

Émile Brugsch (b. February 24, 1842 in Berlin, Germany - d. January 14, 1930 in Nice, France) was a German-born Egyptologist whose career spanned the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is known as the official who "evacuated" the mummies from the Deir el-Bahri Cache in 1881, and as being assistant curator of the Bulaq Museum - the core element of what is today`s Egyptian Museum. Brugsch also assisted author and occultist Aleister Crowley in 1904 by having the Stele of Revealing translated by his assistant. The Stele, and the translation, became integral parts of Crowley's subsequent writing of The Book of the Law and his founding of the philosophical practice and religion of Thelema.
