Live and act

The son of the Leipzig medical professor Johann Gottlob Haase (1739–1801) and his wife Regina Friederica Christiana geb. Withun attended the Thomas School in Leipzig . He studied from 1803 at the University of Leipzig , the Law and graduated on February 20, 1805 as Dr. jur. utriusque off. At least between 1811 and 1821 he worked as a consistorial lawyer at the consistory in Leipzig. He was one of the high-ranking Leipzig state officials. Together with the government councilor and paid Leipzig city councilor Friedrich Heinrich Wilhelm Demuth , he had been in possession of the manors Alten and Plössen from 1800. They enlarged their land holdings near Leipzig in 1824 by acquiring Gohlis , Lindenau with Leutzsch and Barneck and Großdorf. At the Court of Appeal Leipzig he worked from 1837 to 1854 as Appellationsrat. He was an assessor at the Schöppenstuhl in Leipzig .

Haase took on numerous offices in the municipal committees of Leipzig and in the Saxon civil service. In 1831 he can be verified as a member of the Leipzig magistrate . He was a member of the new city council that was created after the Saxon City Council was enacted in 1832. In the years 1832, 1835/37, 1842 and 1844/45 he presided over it.

As a senator, Haase had already participated as one of the deputies of the city of Leipzig on the board of directors of the select committee of the cities of the Saxon Estates Assembly . When the new Saxon constitution came into force in 1831 and the Saxon state parliament was created, he became a member of the Second Chamber as a representative of the city of Leipzig. In the Landtag of 1833/34 and 1836/37 he acted as Vice President of the Chamber. When the previous Chamber President Carl Friedrich Reiche-Eisenstuck decided against re-election at the beginning of the Landtag in 1839/40, he was elected as his successor. In 1845/46 he lost his post to the liberal candidate Karl Braun . This was preceded by a dispute about whether the Second Chamber should formulate proposals for the topics to be discussed in an address to the king at the beginning of a state parliament. Haase had positioned himself ambiguously so that he had become ineligible for both his opponents and supporters. He remained a member of the state parliament until November 1848, but then resigned as he lost his mandate due to the liberalization of the electoral law . When the Saxon government under Ferdinand Zschinsky reinstated the old electoral law of 1831 in the summer of 1850 , he took up his mandate again and was re-elected as President of the Chamber. He held office for the following four state parliaments until 1858. After that, he resigned from parliament.

In 1857 Haase became Vice President of the Leipzig Court of Appeal, but gave up this position a year later. He died in Lößnig in 1868 and was buried in Leipzig.
