Actually, three Stahls did modal logic. You can find a modal logic paper by the third one at:   http://independent.academia.edu/DonaldStahl .

Hi all,

I'm looking for information about W. Stahl. He was a logician who earned his PhD in Germany in the early 1930s. He is mentioned in a manuscript that I am editing by C.I. Lewis. He wrote a thesis, perhaps under Reichenbach, titled {\em Untersuchungen zur Modalit{\"{a}}tslogik}. I would be grateful for any information about Stahl himself (including his first name) or his thesis.

when in Europe*: 

J. Nicod
rue d'Ulm
paris france

The common base of all the Semitic creeds, winners or losers, was the

ever present idea of world-worthlessness. Their profound reaction from
matter led them to preach bareness, renunciation, poverty; and the

atmosphere of this invention stifled the minds of the desert
pitilessly. A first knowledge of their sense of the purity of

rarefaction was given me in early years, when we had ridden far out
over the rolling plains of North Syria to a ruin of the Roman period

which the Arabs believed was made by a prince of the border as a
desert-palace for his queen. The clay of its building was said to have

been kneaded for greater richness, not with water, but with the
precious essential oils of flowers. My guides, sniffing the air like

dogs, led me from crumbling room to room, saying, 'This is jessamine,
this violet, this rose'.

But at last Dahoum drew me: 'Come and smell the very sweetest scent of
all', and we went into the main lodging, to the gaping window sockets

of its eastern face, and there drank with open mouths of the
effortless, empty, eddyless wind of the desert, throbbing past. That

slow breath had been born somewhere beyond the distant Euphrates and
had dragged its way across many days and nights of dead grass, to its

first obstacle, the man-made walls of our broken palace. About them it
seemed to fret and linger, murmuring in baby-speech. 'This,' they told

me, 'is the best: it has no taste.
Thomas Edward Lawrence, the seven pillars of wisdom, ch.3
