Ricardo Krebs Wilckens (December 2, 1918 – December 23, 2011) was a German Chilean historian. In 1943 Krebs joined the newly founded Pedagogy School (Escuela de Pedagogía) of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. There he was in charge of the universal history course. Krebs, as a native of Valpraíso that had until then spent a carrier in Germany, was rather isolated with few contacts in Santiago. This changed when he met Jaime Eyzaguirre at the Pedagogy School who introduced him to the Catholic intellectual elite of Santiago.[1] He was part of the editorial committee of the journal Historia since it was established in 1961.[2]
