**Albrecht Dold** (1928-2011) was a German mathematician who made important contributions in algebraic topology. He worked at Princeton, Columbia University, ETH Zürich and held a chair at Heidelberg University from 1963 to his retirement in 1996. Besides numerous research articles he published the textbook *Lectures on Algebraic Topology* (1972) that became a widely used classic in the field.
