Christian Ferdinand Friedrich Hochstetter (February 16, 1787 - February 20, 1860) was a German botanist and Protestant minister who was a native of Stuttgart. He was the father of geologist Ferdinand Hochstetter (1829-1884). In 1807 Hochstetter received his degree of Master of Divinity in T bingen. While still a student he became a member of a secret organization headed by Carl Ludwig Reichenbach (1788-1869) that had designs on establishing a colony on Tahiti (Otaheiti-Gesellschaft). In 1808 the organization was discovered by authorities, and its members suspected of treason and arrested. Hochstetter was imprisoned for a short period of time for his small role in the secret society. Later he spent six months as a teacher in a private institution in Erlangen, and afterwards was a tutor for 4 years in the house of the Minister of Altenstein.show more
