Ziegler became director of law studies at Pembroke College and was known as ‘Charlie.’ He had been an exceptional student and graduated in June 1912, taking a Masters in 1918. The book ‘The Great Escape: The Life and Death of Roger Bushell – Love, Betrayal, Bix X and The Great Escape’ by Simon Pearson (2013) records that it was said Ziegler ‘ had the deserved reputation of being able to get the dullest people through their exams, and he coached across the university from 1913 to 1952.” Ziegler had a black box containing a deaf aid wired to headphones that would emit loud squeaks and buzzes as he adjusted it.
He wrote 4 works in 35 publications in English and German.
