The foundations for the collections in the future Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History Museum) in Vienna were probably laid in 1748 by Emperor Francis I Stephan (1708–1765), who acquired a mineral collection from the Florentine scholar Jean de Baillou (1684–1758).

After completing secondary school in Vienna's 6th district, Friedrich Trauth studied Greek and Latin and then geology and palaeontology, took further natural science courses and obtained his doctorate in 1908 sub auspiciis imperatoris.
