Arnold Johannes Wilhelm Sommerfeld was born 5 Dec 1868 in Königsberg, Prussia (now Kaliningrad, Russia) and died 26 April 1868-1951 in Munich, Germany
Presently only one (but good) biography source is given
An excellent and fairly recent book-source is:
M. Eckert, Die Atomphysiker - Eine Geschichte der Theoretischen Physik am Beispiel der Sommerfeldschule. Vieweg Verlag, Braunschweig (Germany), 1993.
Unfortunately the book appears to be out of print - so this website will bring some text
and some pictures from it at a later date - please DO remind me if you like.
