Professor Hermann Mulder first appeared in Lovecraft at Last (Willis Conover, 1927).
Professor Hermann Mulder is a scientist from Heidelberg, friend of Friedrich von Junzt, and publisher of Unaussprechlichen Kulten. The two men met in 1815, most likely at the University of Berlin, and became close friends, a bond which grew even stronger after Mülder saved von Junzt's life after a botched occult experiment. Mülder accompanied von Junzt in his Asian travels in 1818–9, but the two grew apart after their return to civilization.
Von Junzt did not re-enter Mülder's life until the mid-1830s. At that time, Mülder was operating a publishing house in Düsseldorf, and von Junzt made arrangements with him to have Unaussprechlichen Kulten published.
