Hi all,
    Some of you would have already heard about the recent partnership 
between Malayalam Wikipedians  German University of Tubingen to digitize the 
works of Herman Gundert.

Dr. Hermann Gundert was a German missionary, scholar, and linguist, as well as 
the grandfather of German novelist and Nobel laureate Hermann Hesse. Gundert 
compiled a Malayalam grammar book, Malayalabhaasha Vyakaranam (1859), the 
Malayalam-English dictionary (1872), and contributed to work on Bible 
translations into Malayalam. He worked primarily at Tellicherry on the Malabar 
coast, in Kerala, India. Gundert also contributed to the fields of history, 
geography and astronomy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_Gundert 

The corpus of nearly 80 manuscripts, 150 printed works and some palm leaf 
manuscripts of the German scholar available with the university runs into some 
42,000 pages. 

A detailed history of this effort can be read here

Alex in Malayalam)
