[Hermann Julius Rütenik/Ruetenik was born Sept. 20, 1826 in Demerthin near Berlin, and died Feb. 22, 1914, in Cleveland. He studied theology at the University of Halle, but came to the United States as a political refugee after the failure of the 1848 revolution. He taught school in Easton, Pennsylvania, and was ordained on July 17, 1853. After marrying Emilia / Amelia Clara Martin, he taught at Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio, and helped found Reformed congregations throughout northern Ohio. He was associated in various capacities with the Central Publishing House, founded the Calvin Institute, edited numerous periodicals, and wrote several books, including Berühmte Deutsche Vorkämpfer für Fortschritt. Freiheit und Friede in Nord-Amerika von 1626 bis 1888 (Cleveland, 1888), an important biographical and historical source on German-American culture.].
From the Einleitung: “Ferner hat der Verfasser bei der Bearbeitung dieses Leitfadens vornehmlich unsre deutsch-englisch Jugend im Auge gehabt. Es ist eine bekannte, oder vielleicht auch nicht hinlänglich bekannte Thatsache, dass die Kinder deutscher Eltern in Amerika gewöhnlich das Unglück haben, weder das Englische, noch das Deutsche gut zu lernen. Während sie meist englisch lesen, sind ihnen die nicht in der gewöhnlichen Umgangssprache vorkommenden englischen Wörter fremd, und von dem, was sie lesen verstehen sie oft nur einen geringen Theil; sonderlich von den schwerern Wörtern ist ihnen die Bedeutung meistens nur halb und dunkel bekannt. Mit dem Verständniss des Deutschn steht es meist noch schwächer. Wenige Worte nur der gewöhnlichen Haussprache sind ihnen bekannt, und selbst diese haben sie selten richtig aussprechen und gebrauchen gehört. Solche Kinder nun auf die bisher übliche Weise in die Sprachlehre einzuführen, ist ungemein schwer. Will man sie englische Grammatik lehren, so stossen sie auf viel grössere Schwierigkeiten noch, als die Kinder englischer Eltern; will man sie deutsch lehren, so sind die Schwierigkeiten bei ihrer Armuth an deutschen Wörtern wo möglich noch grösser. Bei alle dem haben solche Kinder auch wieder manchen Vortheil vor den ganz englischen, ja selbst vor den in Deutschland ganz deutsch erzogenen. Sie wissen von zwei Sprachen etwas. Diesen Umstand gilt es nun, als einen Vortheil zu benutzen, und das haben wir in dem folgenden Letifaden versucht.”

“Archetype of Novel Character Juernjakob Swehn discovered: US-Professor Receives the Johannes-Gillhoff Prize 2009.” German-American Genealogy, Fall 2009, pp. 11.
Notes: (Immigrant Genealogical Society, Burbank, CA).
Abstract: Knuth has identified a real person behind the character of Juernjakob Swehn, created by Johannes Gillhoff based on many letters written by students of his father who had emigrated from Mecklenburg to Iowa. Knuth points to a Carl Wiedow, a stable hand from the Griese Gegend as the man behind the pseudonym. He has published his findings in two books published in 2005: Auf den Spuren von Juernjakob Swehn oder wer hat die Briefe geschrieben? and Who Wrote Those Letters? In Search of Juernjakob Swehn.

Abstract: Begins: “Als der jetzige Staat Kansas noch eine Territorium war, und man die Frage in den Gesetzeshallen eroerterte, ob Kansas ein freier, oder ein Sklavenstaat werden solle, nannte man das Territorium noch neutrales Land, und dasselbe wurde genau bewacht, um die noerdlichen Ansiedler draussen zu halten. Als dann spaeter der Staat in die Union aufgenommen wurde, und die Eisenbahngesellschaften die besten Laendereien zu gewinnen suchten, empoerte sich das Vok, und wer sich mit den Eisenbahnen einliess, dem standen schwere Schicksale vor, denn mancher Ansiedler wurde an der Spitze der Bajonette ausgetrieben; oder gar wie ein gehetztes Wild getoedtet. Aus jener traurigen Zeit stammt die Geschichte, welche wir hier in einfachen und ungekuenstelten Worten wieder erzaehlen.”

Abstract: Includes images of windmills in the United States. On pages 349-50: “Die ‘Pilgervaeter,’ welche von Holland nach Amerika kamen, brachten die Windmuehlen hierher, und benuetzten dieselben zum dreschen und mahlen ihrer Brodfrucht. Unser Welschkorn lernten sie natuerlich erst hier kennen, und zwar auf eigenthuemliche Weise: Miles Standisch und etliche andere Maenner fuellten ihre Reisesaecke mit Zwieback und Hollaenderkaese, und machten sich auf den Weg, um das Land auzukundschaften. Sie fanden bald einen kuenstlichen Sandhaufen, den sie dann auch durchwuehlten und auf Baumrinde stiessen; nach weiterer Forschung entdeckten sie, dass der Haufe hohl und inwendig mit Welschkorn ausgefuellt war: es war ein indianischer Keller. Ohne weiter daran zu denken, dass es gestohlen sei, trugen sie das Korn nach Hause; als der Indianer seinen Verlust entdeckte, fiel sein Verdacht sogleich auf die weissen Fremden, und als er bei ihren Huetten ankam, waren sie eben damit beschaeftigt, das Korn zu mahlen. Der Indianer erhielt dann ehrliche Bezahlung fuer sein Korn. . . . Die weissen Frauen wurden das Kornmahlen muede, und indem sie nicht wie die Squaws der Indianer erzogen waren, und jeder Weisse bange war, seine Frau moechte ihm sterben, und andere weisse Frauen gab es nicht; so wurden Windmuehlen errichtet.”

Abstract: Tale of a railroad accident and potential train robbery. “Doch will ich hier von einem Falle berichten, in welchem die Betreffenden buchstaeblich dem Tode entrannen, und als wie durch ein Wunder noch entkamen. Ich sass einst am Bahnhof eines kleinen Staedtchens, . . . da bemerkete ich zufaellig einen jungen Mann von kaum dreissig Jahren, dessen Haar silberweiss war. . . . Als der Mann sich in meiner Naehe setzte, bat ich ihn um Entschuldigung meiner Freiheit und fragte ihn desshalb. ‘Gewiss sind Sie zu entschuldigen,’ sagte er lachend, ‘denn Sie sind nicht der Einzige, der mich fragt; auch ist es gar befremdend, denn ich bin nur siebenundzwanzig Jahre alt. — O ja, Sie moegen es aufschreiben,’ sagte er weiter, als er gewahrte, dass ich mein Notizbuch bereit machte; ‘nur moechte ich ausbedingen, dass Sie die richtigen Namen nicht nennen, und auch die Bahn nicht veroeffentlichen, auf der sich die Geschichte zutrug. Es war in Colorado auf einer der rauhesten und wildesten Bahnen jenes Landes; die Szenerie glich viel der Denver und Rio Grande Bahn. . . .'”

Das Erste Milwaukeer Lesebuch nebst praktischen Sprach-Uebungen.
Milwaukee, Wis.: Brumder, [1880]. iv, 69 pp., ill.
Inscribed Louis Leidiger, Milwaukee, Wis.
From the Vorwort: “Aus der Schule — für die Schule!” Das ‘Erste Milwaukeer Lesebuch,’ welches heute erscheint, ist das zweite der vom Verein der deutschen Lehrer dieser Stadt herausgegebenen und vorzugsweise für den Unterricht an unseren hiesigen öffentlichen Schulen bestimmten Reihenfolge von Lesebüchern. Der Plan, der uns bei der Herausgabe des bereits im Gebrauche befindlichen Zweiten Lesebuches geleitet hat, war auch bei der Zusammenstellung des vorliegenden Büchleins maßgebend, und gleich jenem ist auch dieses Buch die Frucht praktischer Erfahrung in der Schulstube. Das vorliegende Buch ist für den Unterricht während der zwei ersten Schuljahre bestimmt und zerfällt demgemäß in zwei Theile. Der erste umschliesst in entwickelnder Aufeinanderfolge die Anfangsgründe des Sprech-, Schreib- und Leseunterrichtes mit Berücksichtigung sowohl der Wort- als der Lautirmethode; der zweite Theil enthält eine Auswahl der Altersstufe der Schüler entsprechende Lesestücke nebst praktischen Sprachübungen. Auch hier stand man, wie bei dem Zweiten Lesebuche, von einer systematischen Eintheilung des Lesestoffes ab und suchte die Aufeinanderfolge desselben mit der fortschreitenden Lesefertigkeit des Schülers in Einklang zu bringen. Möge des vorliegende Büchlein sich einer gleich freundlichen Aufnahme, wie das bereits eingeführte, zu erfreuen haben, und uns dadurch Veranlassung geben, an dem bereits in Angriff genommenen dritten und letzten Buch der Reihenfolge mit erhöhtem Muthe weiter zu arbeiten. [Signed] Das Redaktions-Komite: Paul Binner, Josef Baldauf, Bernard A. Abrams, Milwaukee, Wis., September 1880.”

Notes: Bound issues of Das Evangelische Magazin. Verlegt von Lauer und Mattill, Cleveland, Ohio. Redigirt von C. A. Thomas und R. Matt.
Abstract: “Erst in spaeteren Jahren hat die Regierung grosse Laendereien fuer die Ueberreste der unterschiedlichen Staemme als Heimath bestimmt. Dieses Land ist under dem namen ‘Indian Territorium’ bekannt und liegt zwischen den Staaten Kansas, Texas, Colorado drinnen, wo die Weissen wie hungrige Woelfe auf der Wacht liegen, bis sie den Indianern den letzten Rest ihrer Heimstaette rauben und sie vertilgen koennen. Im Jahr 1860 waren noch immer an 350,000 Indianer. Gegenwaertig wohnen vielleicht noch 60,000 in dem Territorium, und diese vertheilen sich wieder auf etwa Reservationen. Die Choctaw-Indianer sind wohl die zahlreichsten, denn ihre Reservation umfasst 10,450 Quadratmeilen, waehrend die Wyandotts nur 38 1/2 Meilen besitzen. Hier hat nun die Regierung an 200 Schulen errichtet, und nebenbei noch etwa 10 Hochschulen. Fast alle Staemme haben ihre heidnische Religion aufgegeben, und weil der Verkauf berauschender Getraenke aufs strengste untersagt ist, findet man dort mehr Kirechen und besseren Kirchenbesuch, als verhaeltnissmaessig irgendwo sonst im Lande. Von hier nun sind die Zoeglinge der Carlisle-Schule gekommen, und hierher werden sie zurueck kehren, um sich unter ihren Stammesgenossen nuetzlich zu machen und den Ueberrest derselben zur Erkenntniss der Wahrheit zu bringen.”

“The German Freethinkers.” 15 pp.
Abstract: The history of the German Free Congregations (Freien Gemeinden) began in Germany in the period of 1840-46, when both Protestant and Catholic groups revolted against authoritarianism in church government and in theological dogma, and withdrew from their orthodox churches to become independent groups. Those members who came to the United States brought with them the principles of independence of the congregation and freedom of thought for the individual which became basic in the organizations formed in thirty Wisconsin communities. The story of these independent-thinking societies belongs in the history of movements which have contributed to intellectual and religious liberalism. Their rational philosophy, democratic practices, nineteenth century science, and humanism were strong influences upon the beliefs of the Freien Gemeinden. For instance, the Freie Gemeinde of Sauk County was founded in 1852. One of the prime movers during the early years was Eduard Schroeter, who devoted his career to the free-thought movement.

Notes: “Taken from the publication of the Archives and Records program of the Texas General Land Office, Saving Texas History. . . . This particular edition covered Germans to Texas.”.
Abstract: Relates the story of Ferdinand Simon, who left Darmstadt and arrived in Texas in 1845. He signed German Immigration Contract #1871 with the Adelsverein, which entitled him to 160 acres of land in Bexar County in the Republic of Texas. “In 1862, the Confederate Conscription Act passed, requiring that all able-bodied men volunteer for service in the Confederate Army. This was a strong reminder of what many of the German immigrants fled from in Europe. German immigrants did not support the decision to secede from the Union. Many of them had already experienced the threat of conscription in Germany and did not want to have the same experience with the Confederate Army. To show their loyalty to the Union, the Hill Country Union Loyal League was formed, [consisting] predominantly of German-Texan members. . . In April 1862, Confederate troops were sent to enforce conscription laws and extinguish the Union Loyal League.” Ferdinand Simon was wounded at what is known as the Neuces [River] Massacre; he was captured and sentenced to death as an enemy of the Confederate States of America, although martial laws was suspended before his execution was to be carried out. The bodies of those killed at the Nueces Rive massacre were brought to Comfort, Texas, where a monument honors their memory.

The original Apostel Band, logically twelve players, is believed to have been founded in Hermann in 1882. In 1885 the band members purchased a set of instruments from Mainz (http://www.hermannhill.com/apostle-band.htm). Original manuscript band scores were re-discovered in Hermann in 2008 by John Layman. The works were revised and arranged for modern band instruments and notation by Alan Nellis. The majority of the material on this disc was originally composed for the Hermann band. While the names of the first members of that band are known, it is not known who, or even whether band member or not, composed and notated the music.

Ludwig ahnte nicht, dass sein Vater Geld an eines Freundes Sohn, der in der grossen Stadt Chicago lebte, gesandt habe, mit dem brieflichen Bescheid, seinen Sohn in allen Notlagen zu unterstützen, wenn derselbe zu ihm kommen were, d. h. so lange sein Sohn Ludwig nicht mit den Gerichten in Konflikt gerate sei; sei das Letzterer eingetreten, so wolle er lieber einen toten Sohn, als einen ungeratenen Sohn.”

Information on Gustav Erlenkoetter.
Notes: Contents: Text copied from the 7. November 1840 Amtsblatt der Regierung Duesselforf and printed portions of a PDF titled 150 Jahre Bergischer Volksbote (15. Juli 2011).
Abstract: Gustav Erlenkoetter is the author of several education-related books published by Schaefer and Koradi in Philadelphia between 1871 and 1891, including Liederbuch fuer deutsch-amerikanische Schulen (Erstes Baendchen); Rechenbuch fuer deutsche Elementarschulen in Amerika (Erster Theil); Mensch und Natur. Ein Lehrbuch Gemeinnuetziger Kenntnisse; Lesebuch fuer die Oberklasse der Elementarschule; Lesebuch fuer die Mittelklasse der Elementarschule; Lesebuch fuer Realklassen deutsch-amerikanischer Schulen; Rechenfibel. Stufenmaessig geordnete Aufgaben fuer Anfaenger im Kopf- und Tafelrechnen; Erstes Lese-Buechlein fuer deutsche Elementarschulen; and Lesebuch fuer die Unterklasse der Elementarschule (nebst Wandfibel); as well as a self-published book of poetry titled Poetischer Jugendschatz in Bild und Spruch, der deutschen Jugend gewidmet. Online research indicates Erlenkoetter was an assistant teacher in Burscheid (Germany), when, in 1840, he was appointed to the post of teacher at the evangelical school in Pattscheid. Erlenkoetter was liberal in his politics and critical of the local educational system; in 1861 he founded a newspaper to promote his views (which later became the Bergischer Volksbote), but was forced to sell it and then emigrated to America around 1865. The 1870 U.S. census shows Gustav (occupation teacher), his wife Julia, and his son Charles living in the Town of Union, Hudson County, New Jersey.

“A Living Legacy: German Song in America.” Der Blumenbaum , vol. 26, no. 3, Jan./Feb./Mar. 2009, pp. 116-117, ill.
Notes: Sacramento German Genealogy Society.
Abstract: Reprints an article from 1873 about the Saengerfest, or “singing festival,” a mainstay of German culture in 19th-century America, and describes the controversy surrounding the 1909 Saengerfest in Madison Square Garden in New York. The Concordia Gesang Verein from the small town of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, “gave an incredibly strong singing performance” but was denied the coveted Kaiser’s Prize by the judges. The denial may have occurred because the Concordia Gesang Verein had already won prizes in other competitions, or it may have had some grounding in the fact that the singing society comprised some forty percent non-German members. A contemporary newspaper account noted that, “if Concordia, with a big nucleus of Germans, is spreading its song influence among its cosmopolitan membership of Americans. . . , is it not eloquently serving the great object of the Bund [to spread the love and the influence of German song]?”

“National German-American Teachers Seminary.” University of Wisconsin, Division of Archives. College of Letters and Science, Dept of German, 1854-1926. 30 pp., UW-Archives. Letters & Science. German.
Notes: Location of the archival collection: UW-Madison Archives, Steenbock Library, Rm. 434.
Abstract: Introduction to the collection and background information and history. Description of the archives. The archives contain: 1) the papers of the German-English Academy and the Milwaukee University School. This was a grade and high school that served as a practice school for the Seminary. It was founded in 1851 with Peter Engelmann, a prominent refugee from the German Revolution of 1848, as its director; 2) material relevant to the finances of the Seminary, The Academy, The Monatshefte and the Yearbook; 3) student exams grade, yearbooks, and other material.
When, in 1927, the National Teachers’ Seminary of Milwaukee reached an agreement with the Regents of the University of Wisconsin (a probationary arrangement made permanent in 1930) and turned over its assets and records to the Department of German, a fifty year pioneering experiment in the teaching of the German language and culture came to an end.
The roots of this institution extend back to 1851 when Peter Engelmann, a participant in the abortive Revolution of 1848, opened a school intended primarily for the children of German-speaking immigrants. In 1854 this secondary institution was incorporated by the state legislature as the German-English Academy. The German Americans of Milwaukee enthusiastically supported the school and it flourished, remaining in continuous operation until at least 1961. Its name was changed to the Milwaukee University School in 1918.
The Teachers’ Seminary evolved directly from the German-English Academy. Faced with the growing shortage of well qualified German-speaking teachers, prominent business and cultural leaders from all over the country met in Louisville in 1870 to form an association for the endowment of a national teacher’s school. A sufficient sum had been raised by 1878 to permit the opening of the National German-American Teacher’s Seminary in Milwaukee. This institution, although administratively distinct from the German-English Academy, occupied quarters in the building erected for the earlier school, and the same director oversaw the direction of both. The Seminary soon achieved wide recognition nationally as a center of German studies and it seemed assured of a stable future. The anti-German feeling of the First World War, as well as the growing competition of state educational institutions, however, brought about virtual dissolution of the Seminary. The directors of the Seminary sought to combat the anti-German currents by changing the name of the institution from The National German-American Teacher’s Seminary to the National Teachers’ Seminary in 1918. This move, however, failed to revive the fortunes of the school; and in 1919 the last class to attend the Seminary graduated.

Abstract: Begins: “Am 27. Maerz d. J. hat der Praesident der Vereinigten-Staaten eine Proklamation erlassen, kraft welcher am 22. April ein neues Territorium fuer weisse Ansiedler eroeffnet wurde. Dieses Territorium liegt mitten im sogenannten ‘Indian-Territorium’; d. i. in dem Land, welches fuer die Indianer reservirt ist. . . . Dass man dieses Land, so im Herzen der Indianerstaemme gelegen, fuer weisse Ansiedler eroeffnet, ist ein Zeichen, dass die Regierung eine neue Epoche mit den Indianern eintreten lassen will; d. h. die Indianer werden gezwungen, mit weniger Land zufrieden zu sein und haerter zu arbeiten. Die ganze Geschichte der Indianer und des ihnen reservirten Landes ist eine Geschichte schreienden Unrechts, das zum Himmel ruft; denn man hat den Indianern noch nie Wort gehalten von Seiten der Regierung.”

Abstract: Born in 1794 at Eckitten, an estate near Memel, in east Prussia (today Klaipeda, Lithuania), Peter Carl Johann von Rosenberg served in the Prussian army, later inherited the Eckitten estate, and raised a family. In 1849 Rosenberg’s eldest son, Carl Wilhelm von Rosenberg, a royal architect, was proscribed because of his outspoken democratic ideas and was barred from further employment with the government. He thus decided to emigrate to Texas. When Carl was unable to dissuade his son from leaving, he decided that the entire family should emigrate together. The family purchased the Nassau plantation in northern Fayette County, and were slaveholders. All the Rosenberg sons joined the Confederate effort during the Civil War.

Abstract: Deiler was born August 8, 1849 in Altoetting, Upper Bavaria, where he received his musical training. In 1871 he accepted a position in New Orleans as principal of St. Boniface German Catholic School, arriving early in 1872 and later that year married Wilhelmina Saganowski. In 1879 he became professor of German at the University of Louisiana, which later became Tulane University. He was elected president of the North American Singers’ Union, first in 1896 and then again in 1903. He was president of the New Orleans German Gazette Publishing Company, and contributed to numerous German and American periodicals. His research interests focused on the history of Germans in the United States, especially in Louisiana, publishing numerous articles on the subject, as well as one book, The Settlement of the German Coast of Louisiana and the Creoles of German Descent (Philadelphia, 1909). In 1898 the German Emperor recognized Deiler’s literary achievements and his services to the German people in the U.S. by conferring upon him knighthood in the Order of the Crown. Deiler died at his summer home in Covington, Louisiana on July 20, 1909.

The Settlers on Lake Winnebago. (Die Ansiedler am Winnebago-See) Amalia Ruegg, trans. Neenah, WI: Citizen Printing & Publishing Co., 2004. 113 pp.
Notes: Originally published as Die Ansiedler am Winnebago-See in German by George Brumder, Milwaukee. Translated by Amelia Ruegg; donated by David V.

Abstract: From the 1894 edition preface: “This story is based upon facts taken from an old diary of one of the early settlers on Lake Winnebago. The story appeared in German from the Publishing House of Mr. G. Brumder, Milwaukee, Wis. . . . Its interest is greatly increased from the fact that it happened so near our homes, and in our own state. Older people all over the state tell sad tales of their hardships in early times. . . . [W]e very diligently set to work to translate it, and after revising it several times, and rejecting all long and superfluous words, we deem it ready to put before the public.” None of the characters in the book appear to be German immigrants.

Notes: Goethe House of Wisconsin; adapted from an article by Otto Tiegs which appeared in the American Breweriana Journal, July-August 1995.
Abstract: Lehman Rosenheimer came to the village of Schleisingerville, Wisconsin, in 1856. He bought a brewery in 1870, which was bought by H. Charles Storck and William Hartig in 1877. “By 1895, Storck’s beer became so popular, he sent it as far as Stevens Point, Wisconsin, by rail…. The Storcks fought off competition by introducing Slinger Beer, the name the village would change its name to in 1921.” During Prohibition the Storck brewery publicly shifted to producing ice cream, although beer was still secretly manufactured. “The brewery was forced into involuntary receivership during September 1958.”

“Story of an Austrian Inventor Named Hedy Lamarr.” Der Blumenbaum, vol. 23, no. 2, Oct./Nov./Dec. 2005, pp. 94, ill.
Notes: Sacramento German Genealogy Society.
Abstract: Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, born in 1914 in Vienna, is otherwise known as the 1940s movie idol Hedy Lamarr. But she also came up with a “brainstorm that helped lead to wireless Internet and cellphones.” Lamarr and her Hollywood neighbor George Antheil patented an idea for radio “frequency hopping” and then donated it to the government, which promptly classified it. The concept was utilized in military computer chips in the 1950s, was declassified in 1985, and then was applied to cellphones, cordless phones, and the Wi-Fi Internet protocols.

Es ist eine Freude, zu sehen, wie schnell es unsere sparsamen und arbeitslustigen eingewanderten Landsleute zu einem eigenen Heim bringen, in dem der Segen des Familienbluecks sich viel besser erzielen, geniessen und foerdern laesst, als in jenen ‘Zinskasernen’ (Tenement-Houses) unserer grossen Staedte, die mit ihren zahllosen Wohnungen nur ein nomadenaehnliches Miethausleben zulassen. . Ausser auf die Trockenhaltung des Wohnhauses haben wir aber unser Augenmerk auf noch andere Haupterfordernisse des menschlichen Wohlbefindes zu richten, die man die vier Elemente der Wohnung nennen koennte, und diese sind: Luft, Licht, Waerme und Wasser.”

Unsere Schule in Bild und Wort, 1852-1918. [Dubuque, Iowa: German Theological School of the Northwest], 1918. [50] pp., ill.
An illustrated souvenir book of the German Theological School of the Northwest in Dubuque, Iowa. The University of Dubuque Theological Seminary was founded in 1852 to reach out to the many German settlers arriving in the Midwest at that time. The seminary provided theological education to those called to serve as evangelists and pastors throughout the Midwest. The school, initially known as Van Vliet Seminary after founder Adrian Van Vliet, was renamed the German Theological School of the Northwest in 1864. In 1870, the seminary was accepted by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church as a theological institution of the church. Although Van Vliet was Dutch, until 1896 all classes were conducted in German. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Dubuque]

Abstract: Summary of a presentation by Dr. Barbara Lorenzkowski (professor of history at Concordia University in Montreal) titled “Sounds of Ethnicity: Listening to German North America, 1850-1914.” Lorenzkowski described the lushness of German music festivals on both sides of the Great Lakes, and also developed a theoretical argument concerning music’s role in the creation of social spaces. Large festivals allowed for cultural exchange between German immigrants and Anglo-Saxon audiences because “unlike the German language, the festive tunes were accessible to all.” Lorenzkowski also discussed how music festivals helped in the creation of unique ethnic identities for German immigrants in both the United States and Canada.

Z.B. “Van Sandt” aus “Unverzagt,” “Mericandollar” aus “Mergenthaler.” Und es wird hoffentlich mit der Zeit Jemand entstehen, der diese Namensaenderungen zu einer umfassenden und, soweit es moeglich, ershoepfenden Studie macht.” Includes list of some names and their variant translations and spellings.
