Haas, Jeff. “‘They Have No Idea What It Is to Run a Malthouse’: A Wisconsin Beer Maker in Japan.” Wisconsin Magazine of History, vol. 87, no. 2, Winter 2003-2004, pp. 14-29, ill.
Abstract: On July 16, 1917, thirty-nine year old Wisconsin native August Groeschel boarded a ship in Seattle on his way to Yokohama, Japan. There he was to apply his expertise as a maltster and an engineer at the Kirin Brewing Company. This article includes excerpts of his letters home that describe the “frustrations and the satisfactions of doing the most familiar work he knew in the most unfamiliar place he had ever been.” Despite successes, his ailing health resulted in his death, and the maltster from Kewaskum, Wisconsin, was buried in the Yokohama Foreign General Cemetery on December 11, 1918.

Habein, Harold C. Jr. “A Civil War Soldier.” Germanic Genealogy Journal, vol. 9, no. 2, Summer 2006, pp. 15-16.
Abstract: Recounts the author’s search for the name of an ancestral village in Alsace. Christian Schmitt immigrated to America with his parents and several siblings in 1829, and lived in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania; Marion County, Ohio; and eventually in Barton Township, Washington County, Wisconsin (here the name was listed as Smith in the census of 1850 and 1860). The author eventually discovered an obituary that listed the town of Hatten as Christian’s birthplace. Christian’s second son, George, enlisted in Company E, 27th Volunteer Wisconsin Regiment, in 1862.

Haberland, Paul M. “The Reception of German Literature in Baltimore’s Literary Magazines, 1800-1875.” Journal of German-American Studies, vol. 7, Spring 1974, pp. 69-92.
Abstract: Haberland’s article divides the span of reception into different phases. The first (prior to the 1820’s) is marked by few translations of German works into English and a markedly critical reception of German authors in Baltimore literary periodicals. (Haberland lists the reviewed journals as well as the mentioned authors in the appendices at the end of the article.) The second phase, the 1830’s, is characterized by a drastic warming to German literature. In the third phase, 1840-1860, references to German literature drop to two. The author hypothesizes that this was due most likely to the raging debates re slavery. In the fourth phase, beginning with the end of the Civil War and continuing on into the 1870’s, things pick up again.

Hanle, Robert Vail. “A History of Higher Education Among the German Baptist Brethen: 1708-1908. Dissertation.” University of Pennsylvania, 1974, 316 pp.
Notes: UMI, printed in 1988. Book, in MadCat.
Abstract: From their inception colleges and universities are in a continuous struggle for life. The tensions for survival are not between abstract ideologies, nor are they between the institutions of higher education and society as such. They are between groups of individuals, each group striving for identity. The contention is between committed people endeavoring to advance educational, social, and moral principles favorable to them, and to frustrate those policies inimical to them. No escape from these struggles was afforded those institutions of higher learning established by the German Baptist Brethren during the latter half of the nineteenth century. However, for this group of German pietists, it was not merely a question of survival of the fruits of their efforts in establishing small colleges; it was why a small denomination of backwoods religion, silent and void of literary activity for more than a half century should emerge with a sudden burst of interest in formal schooling. The purpose of this study is to examine those changes of attitudes from within the church of the German Baptist Brethren toward the establishment of higher educational institutions that can be interpreted as possible links with the secularizing elements of the nineteenth century society.

Nach eigenen Erfahrungen seinen lieben Landsleuten erzaehlt von Andreas Hanselmann in Wattwil. Prefatory note (pp. v-vi) includes photograph of Andreas, his wife Susette, and their dog Barr [p. iv].
Abstract: From the Prefatory Note (pp. [iv]-vi): “Andreas Hanselmann (1825-1905) had his roots in the Toggenburg, a valley belonging to the Canton St. Gallen and situated in the northeastern part of Switzerland. [H]e left his wife Susette and his two children . . . in 1860 and went to the United States. . . . offer[ing] no explanation for his departure. Being caught by the Civil War in New Orleans shortly after his arrival, he enrolled in the Louisiana Militia and, after the fall of that city to the Union forces, he changed sides and finished the war fighting for the North. At the war’s end, he went via Panama from New York to California where he pursued different occupations, He was for a short time a dishwasher and later a shepherd in the surroundings of Sacramento. After 28 years spent in the Unite States, he went back to Switzerland in 1888 and rejoined his wife in Wattwil. . . . A few years before his death [in 1893], Andreas Hanselmann wrote an account about his American adventures. He wanted to tell his countrymen of his experiences at a time when few news items from abroad reached his quite remote valley. In his booklet he describes some events he had actually experienced as well as some stories he had evidently heard from others. Some information about events of the Civil War such as the assassination of Abraham Lincoln or the history of the gold rush intended to give Swiss readers an overview. Meeting other Swiss seems to have been of great importance to Andrew Hanselmann, perhaps because he was homesick. Several stories about crimes show that this type of news interested writers and readers already in the nineteenth century.” The appendix (pp. 52-54) lists participants and provides a translation of an address given at a January 1899 meeting of American Civil War veterans in Luzern, Switzerland.

Hansen, Marcus L. “The revolutions of 1848 and German immigration.” Journal of Economic and Business History, vol. 2, 1929/30, pp. 630-658.
Abstract: The large German emigration of the 1850’s, so important for America, has usually been considered a reaction to the political disturbances of the year 1848. In fact, it has a much more complex background, with economic factors playing a large part. The emigration of this period was mainly from Southwest Germany, and especially from those districts where small agricultural holdings prevailed. From the time of the Napoleonic wars agriculture had been profoundly changed. Many peasants mortgaged their holdings to finance the new agriculture, and with the transfer of capital to other fields and the crop failures of the ‘forties and ‘fifties, large numbers were forced to emigrate. The legislation which followed the uprisings of 1848 completed the emancipation of the peasants, but the transition brought many hardships and further emigration, mainly to America, where the agricultural prospects were then especially bright

Abstract: Francis J. Grund’s Aristocracy in America is a principled and partisan satire on the possibility of an American aristocracy. Travel accounts of the early nineteenth century were part of a larger European dialogue about liberalism and reform, a dialogue in which Grund’s place is only recently gaining appreciation. Grund produced two such works, The Americans in their Moral, Social, and Political Relations, published in 1837, and Aristocracy in America, published in 1839. Grund was engaged in American political dialogue as a partisian (Democrat) politician and journalist. Aristocracy in America is a stinging critique of Grund’s political enemies.

Abstract: “Undoubtedly, there is a connection between Boas’s German and Jewish background, status as an immigrant, and commitment to an anthropology that allowed for the strong influence of environmental factors on anatomical ones; that is, that sought to undermine a biological or racial determinism and replace it with an explanatory framework focused on culture.” However, “in order to be taken as scientific, Boas’s work had to appear value-neutral and de-politicized….

Donated by Dennis Boyer.
Abstract: Pre-immigration information is unknown, but it is believed that Joh. Georg Harter immigrated to the United States during the second quarter of the eighteenth century. He is listed on the 1790 census of Washington County, Maryland, and from Frederick County Lutheran church records it is known that his wife’s name was Eva. The article describes the family’s major events in Maryland after 1769, the activities of descendants in Franklin County, Virginia after 1792, and the role that religious faith played in the lives of many Harter family members.

Harwood, Glenn R. “The Movement For Assimilation: A Critical Analysis of the Rhetoric of Carl Schurz. Dissertation.” University of Oregon, 1979. 254 pp.
Notes: UMI, printed in 1988. Book, in MadCat.
Abstract: Introduction: The Purpose and Approach. The purpose of this research has been to analyze the rhetoric of Carl Schurz, United States Secretary of the Interior from 1877 to 1881, as it applied to advocacy of a federal policy of assimilation for American Indians. Schurz chose and applied particular rhetorical strategies while functioning as the symbolic and practical leader of an intra-institutional or innovational movement for radical change in American Indian policy. This innovational movement had as its aim the passage of Congressional legislation to: (1) minimize the functions of tribal institutions; (2) continuously strengthen the position of the government representative and subordinates; and (3) improve effectiveness of programs intended to break down traditional patterns within Indian communities. Schurz and other prominent reformers urged Congress to adopt various plans to end the reservation system and to transform Indians from members of culturally distinct traditional communities to individual landowners and farmers having no allegiance to any tribal organization. The policy proposed by Schurz to Congress to achieve this transformation was known as the general allotment system or the severalty plan. It called for allotment of Indian lands in fee simple to individual Indians who would be granted patents for specified sections of land. Viewed in larger perspective, however, general allotment was but one component of an overall plan advocated by Schurz in his role as leader of the innovational movement for American Indian assimilation. The movement was an organized, institutionalized, and collective effort by advocates of severalty within the Department of Interior. Ralph R. Smith and Russel R. Windes have developed a rhetorical theory that explains how a change in status quo can be accomplished by individuals acting in concert within the institutions they wish to modify. The theory hypothesizes that spokesmen in innovational movements usually do not wish to change society’s values. The aggressor spokesmen of the innovational movement were usually members of the established order, and they usually hoped to avoid radical division rather than to foster it. The innovational movement is a rhetorical movement in that its members attempt to satisfy a rhetorical exigence through persuasive discourse. The discourse is directed at a specific audience, and it usually centers on three rhetorical strategies. First, speakers for the movement must deny the existence of conflict between their proposed innovation and the values of society. Second, the movement itself must demonstrate the weakness of traditional institutions and the strength of traditional values. Third, the movement must foster a dialectic between its scene and its purpose. The movement for American Indian assimilation differed from social movements with similar goals in the makeup of the audience to which the messages for change were directed. Social movements attacked Schurz’s persuasive arguments from both extremes: A viable faction in the West opposed him on the grounds that he had gone too far in his philanthropy to American Indians, while a group in the East countered that he had not gone far enough toward promoting immediate citizenship for Indians. Simultaneously both social movements attempted to change American Indian management by gaining support at the grass roots; both were challenged by the establishment, but they actually gained strength because of the opposition of the legitimate power structure.

Abstract: “Hauptmann’s ‘Die Weber’ was first publicly produced in the German-language theaters of America. In the following years, the play was often performed not only in ‘mainstream’ theaters but by radical theater groups, which quickly adopted it as a popular propaganda-piece because of its presumably ‘revolutionary’ message. Since the working classes attended all performances in large numbers, a discussion ensued about the play and its impact: in one case, a performance was prohibited by the police. The workers’ interest in “Die Weber,” the timid reaction of both the German-American bourgeois press and of local authorities indicate that the drama’s social realities corresponded to the working and living conditions of German-American laborers in the late nineteenth century.”

Notes: Goethe House of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wis.
Abstract: Mildred Fish (1902-1943) was of English ancestry, but grew up in the heavily German immigrant west side of Milwaukee. She married Arvid Harnack, a German lawyer and economist, and went to Germany with him when he returned in 1929. Both began working for one of the most significant early resistance groups inside the Third Reich. She and her husband were arrested in late 1942; her husband was executed shortly thereafter for treason, and Mildred was at first imprisoned, but later re-tried and sentenced to death in 1943.

Notes: Paper originally presented at a conference at Texas A&M University, Apr. 1997.
Abstract: “How could the strong and often exuberant conviction of the superior martial prowess of German soldiers, from generals on down, expressed by so many German immigrants, coexist throughout the war with the negative and sometimes bitterly scornful opinion that many American-born military men and English-language papers held of the soldierly qualities of German immigrants of all ranks?” This paper also addresses how some aspects of German regiments contributed to ethnic antagonism in the military; examines differences in the motivation to volunteer and fight between German-born and American Union soldiers; considers certain court martial cases as indicators of ethnic relations during the Civil War; and examines how the “Americanization” thesis holds up against the evidence presented.

Abstract: Die Briefe, die den Atlantik in westlicher Richtung ueberquerten, verlangten sehr haeufig Auskunft ueber die Chancen und die Ratsamkeit der Nachwanderung. Zwar enthaelt die Bochumer Auswandererbrief-Sammlung (BABS) kaum mehr als ein halbes Dutzend Zitate, aber das liegt lediglich daran, dass in der BABS nicht mehr als drei Dutzend westbound letters enthalten sind: Sie wurden eher zufaellig aufgenommen und nie gezielt gesammelt. Wenn der Autor trotzdem mit Bestimmtheit behauptet, dass derartige Fragen immer und immer wieder gestellt wurden, so vor dem Hintergrund Tausender von Briefen in oestlicher Richtung, die unzweideutig die aus Deutschland gestellten Fragen rekonstruieren lassen. Die Auswanderer jedenfalls gaben in aller Regel geduldig und detailliert Auskunft.

Abstract: This article examines the reasons for and effects of German immigration to New Brunswick, Canada in the twentieth century. Besides the thrust from Europe, there was also a need in and a lure from North America in the form of active recruitment to attract “desirable” settlers which brought immigrants to the New World. At the end of WWII, Canada became very attractive to poor refugees. After Canada opened its borders to German nationals in 1950, almost half a million Germans came to Canada over a 20-year period. New Brunswick has a population of a little more than 600,000 in an area that would cover about two-thirds the area of West Germany. Its Department of Commerce and Technology has been actively promoting this province in Europe in an effort to attract the “business immigrant,” which is part of a larger effort to develop New Brunswick industrially and economically.

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.

Notes: Includes end notes.
Abstract: Details continuing research by the author for the immigrant Carl / Charles Koenig / King (? – ca. 1780). While no immigration records have yet been discovered, the author believes his ancestor married three time. There was a Carl Koenig who married Christina Schmidt from Zweibruecken in 1754 at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Then, in 1758 there was Carl Koenig, “a widower,” who married Catharina Herburger at Canadochly Union Church, York County, Pennsylvania. Finally, there are records for a Carl Koenig, “a widower for the second time,” who married Eliesabetha Barbara Brinck in 1759, also in Canadochly Union Church. The marriage records state that Eliesabetha Barbara Brinck was the “left behind” daughter of Johann Jacob Brincker, formerly of Senssbach in Orttewald / Odenwald. Research indicates Eliesabetha Barbara Brinck was born in Beerfelden Parish, Erbach, in the modern state of Hesse.

Abstract: During the second World War it became evident that the radical decrease in German language instruction since 1917 had caused a dire shortage of fluent German speakers in the United States — except for the anti-facist refugees from Central Europe. The exiled intellectuals’ intelligence and other activities for the war effort eventually secured their American citizenship. Many also thus gained access into American universities and their leftist orientation was overlooked.

Abstract: Since most heritage learners do not find their interests reflected in today’s language curricula and since our student body is becoming increasingly diverse, we propose a prototype for conceptualizing various types of authentic German-American texts at various levels of linguistic competency. This concept is not only pedagogically sound, but the introduction of various expressions of the German- American immigrant experience to the language classrooms might partially address and rectify a very real challenge to our profession: the dwindling enrollments in language and literature courses.

Refugees from religious persecution in the German states of the early nineteenth century, the founders of Amana were the descendants of an eighteenth century religious movement first known as the Community of True Inspiration (Wahre Inspirations Gemeinde).”

Abstract: Im Vergleich zu den niederlaendischen, franzoesischen und englischen Haefen beteiligten sich Bremen und Hamburg in nennenswertem Umfang erst spaet am Auswanderertransport nach Nordamerika. Einerseits war die Atlantikkueste von Sueddeutschland aus ueber den Rhein und die niederlaendischen Haefen leichter und billiger zur erreichen als ueber norddeutsche Flusswege. Andererseits galten bis 1783, als die Unabhaengigkeit der dreizehn nordamerikanischen Kolonien von Grossbritannien anerkannt wurde, Befoerderungsrestriktionen gemaess der britischen Navigationsakte. So waren bis zum Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts im wesentlichen nur einige aufsehenerregende Transporte ueber Bremen abgewickelt worden, darunter 1683 die Auswaunderung deutscher Pietisten unter der Fuehrung von Franz David Pastorius nach Pennsylvanien und 1776 die Einschiffung eines Teils der an Grossbritannien verkauften hessischen Soldaten.

Abstract: “In February 1872, in Grainet, Bavaria, [the author’s] great-great-grandfather Johann Stadler was married and with three other couples, including his brother Joseph Stadler, left for Kansas. ‘One Stadler uncle had settled there as a farmer in 1855.’ Johann’s daughter Franziska was born and baptized in Eudora in December of that year. In 1877 the Stadlers returned to Grainet, and Johann died in 1879. His question, which we could not answer, was why the family left Eudora to return to Bavaria? His own suggestion [is] that the recession following the severe 1873 crash in the US had discouraged them.”

Hoffman, Elliott W. “The German Soldiers in the American Revolution. Dissertation.” University of New Hampshire, 1982. 585 pp.
Notes: UMI, printed in 1988.
Abstract: The thirty thousand German soldiers who served with the British Army in the American Revolution enabled the British to attempt to successfully wage war without affecting the stability of British society. The six German states that sent troops to America did so as a result of hundreds of years of normal troop trade. Few Britons questioned the legality of the hiring of foreign troops. Britain could not fight the war without such troops and even the critics of the war acknowledged this truth. The Germans often made up half the forces facing Americans on the battlefield. This dissertation analyzes the reasons for the troop trade, the treaties between Britain and the German states, the recruiting of the forces, and their organization for battle. This is followed by a narrative of battlefield actions from Long Island in August 1776 to Yorktown in October 1781 and stresses the contributions and limitations of the German troops. Finally, several chapters deal with the place of the Germans within the British military establishment, a statistical analysis of selected German units, American blacks as German soldiers, Germans’ images of the American Revolution, German atrocities and plundering, and German prisoners of war and deserters. The Germans represent just about the last major European army to fight for mercenary payment, but they also prefigure the professional peacekeepers of the twentieth century, soldiers fighting not for national preservation, but rather for some conception of societal order. In terms of utility, the British made a good bargain.

Notes: English summary, pp. 35-36.
Abstract: The Turnfest held in Frankfurt in July 1880 was an international event, including delegations from “a number of European countries as well as a 400-member group of German-Americans from the US. The visit of the American Turners was all the more significant given the rift that had developed between the American and German Turners over political issues since the founding of the new German empire in 1871. American Turners were quite vocal in their criticism of their German counterparts for their lack of political activity in the new empire….By returning to the German fatherland and demonstrating their gymnastic skills, these German-American Turners proved that they had remained true to their German cultural heritage but had also become strong adherents of American democracy and political freedom.”

Minster, Ohio: The Minster Historical Society, 1987.) Addresses accusations of forgery and plaigarism in this book. “The publication of the texts and accompanying drawings in 1987 produced at first a wave of fascination, but questions were soon raised about the originality of the materials. Such allegations of forgery were dismissed by the Minster Historical Society… The results of [the reviewer’s] investigation leave little doubt about the plagiarism of a number of items in the ‘Liwwaet Boeke’ materials and cast suspicion on other parts of the material that they, too, were falsified or plagiarized.” Includes several illustrations from reviewed book.

Das Zentrum von Adlers Taetigkeit — der Tempel Emanu-El — und die Stadtresidenz der Belmonts lagen beide in der Fifth Avenue in New York, nur wenige hundert Meter voneinander entfernt. Es ist nicht bekannt, ob der Bankier und der Rabbiner sich je persoenlich begegnet sind. Wohl kaum, denn sie bewegten sich in sehr unterschiedlichen Kreisen: Belmont in der Welt des Geldes, Adler im Umfeld der Synagoge.

Notes: Includes bibliographical references.
Abstract: From the concluding paragraph: “The abolitionist intellectuals I deal with in this project established networks, small-scale deliberative democracies, in which they opened up channels of critical exchange and deliberated about their common affairs. Opposition to slavery was one, if not the constituting element of these networks. But it was equally a point of departure for men and women who discovered that, with regard to their egalitarian visions, they were only part of a great concert. In this sense, conversations about slavery and abolition between the three subgroups I have outlined were at the same time conversations about the chances and limits of democracy in an international, multicultural setting. So as these three groups, African-American intellectuals, Anglo-American abolitionists, and German-American Forty-Eighter revolutionaries, were pursuing “freedom,” each according to their own political and cultural understanding, they learned how and to what extent their definitions of freedom and democracy diverged from each other. They added another dimension that is still fairly unknown to Abraham Lincoln’s famous observation that liberty had become a universal slogan; ‘But in using the same word,’ he went on, ‘we do not all mean the same thing.'”

Hopkins, Leroy T. “The Germantown Protest: Origins of Abolitionism among the German Residents of Southeastern Pennsylvania.” Yearbook of German-American Studies, vol. 23, 1988, pp. 19-29.
Abstract: The historical relationship between Afro-Americans and Pennsylvania Germans is explored in this study. The focus is on the Germantown Protest, the first protest in the New World against the African slave trade. A “reception history” of the document is employed to shed some new light on its significance and its importance for German-Black relations after 1688, the year of its origin. The author posits that the Germantown Protest should be perceived as a pragmatic declaration of common sense doctrine to enable more consistent dealing with the many apparent contradictions in German-Afro-American interactions. While Germans were often slaveholders, not only in the South but in Pennsylvania, there was also German support for the abolition movement in its various stages.

Hopkins, Leroy T. “Spiritual fatherland: African-American intellectuals and Germany, 1850-1920.” Yearbook of German-American Studies, vol. 31, 1996, pp. 25-36.
Abstract: The search for identity of African-Americans coincides with an intensification of the relationship between Germans and Africans. Between 1850 and 1920 African-American intellectuals perceived Germany and Germans to be their spiritual kin. Humanitarianism, liberalism, indeed culture itself were synonymous with Germany. For African-Americans the identification with Germany’s liberal traditions was doubly important because of their own struggle to create and nurture their own cultural identity in the midst of a racist society. The 20th century’s clash of opposing ideologies would challenge that identification or idealization.

Abstract: “While focusing primarily on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and addressing Afro-German interaction in a geographically restricted area, it is hoped that this essay will not only suggest topics by also encourage research into those topics. By moving beyond an analysis of German attitudes towards Africans in the context of slavery and abolition to the exploration of other social, economic, and cultural contexts in which Afro-German contact occurred, it is possible to gain new perspectives on the current interplay of ethnicity and race and perhaps develop better strategies for coexisting in an increasingly multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-racial world.”

Howard, Etha Johannaber. “The Impact of Urban Development on Ethnic Identity in a Texas German-American Community. Dissertation.” Southern Methodist University, 1984. 603 pp.
Notes: UMI, printed in 1988. Book, in MadCat.
Abstract: The aim of the study is to discover the extent to which perceptions of ethnicity may be changing within the context of urban growth in a German-American community. Concepts concerning the variability and manipulability of ethnic identity developed by Abner Cohen and others are tested with a white ethnic group which has been dominant in the community since its founding. Fredericksburg, Texas, established as a colony of a German emigration company in 1846, was demographically stable for fifty years prior to 1970. Since the late 1960s, an acceleration of population growth, due chiefly to migration prompted by social and psychological considerations, has been transforming a traditional, agricultural town and county into a center for tourism, retirement, and recreation. As a result, ethnic awareness has intensified and ethnicity as a mechanism for community organization and as an economic resource is a focus both for cooperation and conflict. Symbolic interaction approaches provide the orientation for the analysis of behavioral and cognitive aspects of transactions in which ethnic identity is defined. A survey of adults in a five percent, random sample of Fredericksburg households (N=253) included open-ended questions regarding individual and community identity. Respondents used one or more of sixteen ways for claiming or ascribing identity; the most frequent way was by national origin. For the individual or community, ethnicity may be identity, lifestyle, or theme. These three aspects, taken in the order given, describe a general historical trend. All three are also represented in processes at work at the present time. Styles of ethnic expression tentatively identified describe a behavioral repertoire available for selection in response to specific issues or situations. Selection also appears to be conditioned not only by prior history but also by the instrumental value of ethnicity related to other values (economic, for example) of the individual or group.

Salmons, editor. Studies of the Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies, General editor Henry Geitz. Madison, Wisconsin: Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies, UW-Madison, 1993. pp. 190-212.
Abstract: Any study of the history of the German language in America is of necessity a study of languages in contact, for no matter how isolated a German-speaking community may have been, its speech patterns inevitably reflect the continuing influence of the dominant language in the United States and much of Canada, namely English. Generally speaking, the influence exerted by English on German results from borrowing features of American English into North American dialects of German. A second type of contact-based influence is the influence of German on regional variants of American English. This influence results from native speakers of German imposing lexical and structural features of German onto their spoken English. This imposition of German features onto English is often referred to in lay terms as German coloring, a German accent or a prevalence of Germanisms. The German speaker will impose the structural characteristics of German onto English. It is this process of imposition — and its effects on regional variants of English — that will be the topic of this paper.

Hoyt, Giles R. “Herman Zagel’s Jack Roostand: A German-American View of Prairie Life.” Yearbook of German-American Studies, vol. 38, 2003, pp. 113-118.
Abstract: “The present relatively brief article desires to give some insights into an American author, Herman Zagel, who wrote in German about life on the American frontier in the late nineteenth century. . . . Zagel is an American author who treats American life, not just German-American life in German. Zagel’s novels, short stories and travel essays have never been translated.” Focuses upon Zagel’s two novels about the life of a young minister, Jack Roostand, who serves German-speaking communities. Among other topics within the novels, Hoyt points out that “many of the Germans [who speak different dialects] cannot understand each other, which tends to exacerbate tense situations. There is frequently conflict in the congregation often caused by language problems.”

Abstract: From the conclusion: “Instead of focusing on the sufferings and industriousness, or the contributions and success of the Germans [in 18-century colonial Louisiana], future scholarship should strongly concentrate on groups that are inextricably linked with the history of the Germans of Louisiana: African-Americans and American Indians . . .; utilize approaches such as Gender Studies to review images of women as ‘diligent housewives and mothers’; . . . [and] discuss the history of the Germans in Circum-Caribbean, Atlantic, and Trans-Atlantic perspectives. Different projects might, for example, investigate how notions of ‘Germans’ or ‘Germanness’ were produced in exchange between colonial and metropolitan agents and administrations; [or] explore how German farmers of colonial Louisiana were embedded into networks of French and Spanish mercantilism and capitalism.”

Evidence of convergent and nonconvergent change is presented from Pennsylvania German in two contrasting environments: 1) among Amish and Mennonite sectarians, who still learn Pennsylvania German natively and speak it as the language for daily discourse; and 2) among the nonsectatirans, in whose communities only older members speak Pennsylvania German, and almost all speakers below age 60 learned English natively and use English for virtually all communicative functions

Huffines, Marion Lois. “”Lexical Borrowing and Linguistic Convergence in Pennsylvania German”.” Yearbook of German-American Studies, vol. 23, 1988, pp. 59-71.
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to document the distribution of English vocabulary words across Pennsylvania German speech communities and to view that distribution within the context of linguistic convergence. Three areas are of concern: (1) the distribution of English borrowings across Pennsylvania German communities; (2) the effect of morphological integration; and (3) the influence of borrowing on syntax and discourse behavior. It is argued that in language contact lexical borrowing initiates and drives the process of convergence. As borrowing becomes more obvious, speakers also begin to question the integrity of the borrowing (minority) language. Extensive borrowing may consequently lead speakers to adopt the dominant language for all their communicative needs.

Notes: Includes bibliographical references. — Donated by Irina Hundt.
Abstract: This article seeks to provide a preliminary biographical essay of Adele Wilhelmine Charlotte Erbe. Adele Erbe was born 21 September 1824 in Altenburg, Saxony. She was active in the revolutionary movement of 1848-1849 as a journalist for the Frauen-Zeitung, a poet, and a women’s rights activist. She is recognized among the most well-known of the Forty-Eighter women, her name listed along with Louise Otto, Mathilde Anneke, Louise Aston, Kathinka Zitz, Johanna Kinkel, Emma Herwegh and others. In 1851 she emigrated to the United States and worked as a teacher in New York. In contrast to her celebrated contemporaries, however, Adele Erbe’s life and work has not been fully explored.

Abstract: Herman Schuenemann (born in the German-American community of Ahnapee, now Algoma, Wisconsin) was one of twenty-four sailing ship captains who participated in the trade of Christmas trees on Lake Michigan. Known as “Captain Santa,” Schuenemann would also donate trees to orphanages and the poor, as well as to hotels and churches. This article tells of the sinking of Schuenemann’s ship, the Rouse Simmons, in November of 1912. Heavily laden with Christmas trees bound for Chicago, the ship was last sighted in a strong gale off Kewaunee, Wisconsin.

Hurley, Donna W. “Alfred Gudeman, Atlanta, Georgia, 1862–Theresienstadt, 1942.” Transactions of the American Philological Association, vol. 120, 1990, pp. 355-381.
Abstract: “Alfred Gudeman was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on August 26, 1862, the eldest of four children. By 1965 the family was in New York. . . . When their father went to Cuba never to return, Solomon Zickel, their mother’s stepfather, effectively adopted the family. Zickel had come from Germany to New York where he published and edited several nationally circulated German language weeklies; his success with these allowed him to purchase and retire to an estate near Dresden. Alfred Gudeman and his sisters would follow him back to Germany.” Gudeman attended Columbia College, studied under Hermann Diels at the University of Berlin. From 1890 to 1893 he was a fellow and lecturer at Johns Hopkins University, then a professor at the University of Pennsylvania and at Cornell University. “In 1904 Alfred Gudeman left the United States for Germany, never to return for so much as a visit. . . . [H]is German wife and his own family that was as German as it was American may have influenced his decision.” He became a member of the corps of scholars preparing the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, a unique distinction for an American Latinist. By 1917 he naturalized as a German citizen in Berlin. The difficulties of the Hitler era begin to appear in his correspondence by the spring of 1935. His son, Theodore Gudeman, was able to successfully immigrate to Indiana in 1937, but Alfred was not able to do so. Alfred Gudeman died in the concentration camp Theresienstadt on September 9, 1942.

Jacobi, Juliane. “Schoolmarm, Volkserzieher, Kantor, and Schulschwester: German Teachers among Immigrants during the Second Half of the Nineteenth Century.” German Influences on Education in the United States to 1917. Henry Geitz, Juergen Heideking, and Jurgen Herbst, eds. Washington, D.C.; Cambridge; New York : German Historical Institute; Cambridge University Press, 1995, pp. 115-128.
Abstract: “This essay deals with four different groups of teachers among German immigrants that I came across while investigating elementary schools for German immigrants in Wisconsin. Two variables, gender and religious affiliation, divided teachers into four different categories: (1) the female public elementary school teacher, ridiculed as “schoolmarm”; (2) the German-American non-church-affiliated teacher, that is, the Volkserzieher; (3) the Lutheran parochial school teacher, that is, the Kantor; and (4) the Catholic school sister. . . .The essay deals with the different groups according to their degree of modernization. It starts out with the most advanced type, the wage-earning woman, followed by the German-American teacher who considered himself modern. Most historians of education consider the church-affiliated Lutheran male teacher and the Catholic school sister as the least modern types of school teacher. What did this mean in the most democratic modernized society of the era?”

Abstract: During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was a center for the production of panorama paintings. Today, the diaries of painter Friedrich Wilhelm Heine are being transcribed and translated to provide a glimpse into what life was like for artists in the city once known as the “German Athens.” The diaries offer many challenges, as they are written in an old script that few can read today, with Heine writing his letters quite small, employing both archaic 19-century words as well as numerous abbreviations of his own devising, and often omitting punctuation. Yet his diaries yield interesting information on the process of researching and creating panoramic paintings (for example, Heine worked on Civil War depictions such as the Battle of Atlanta and the Battle of Missionary Ridge) as well as daily life in Milwaukee, such as visiting taverns and meeting with other prominent figures of the time.

Jick, Leon A. “Jews in the Synagogue–Americans Everywhere. The German-Jewish Immigration and the Emergence of the American Jewish Pattern 1820-1870. Dissertation .” Columbia University, 1973. 298 pp.
Notes: UMI, printed in 1988. Book, in MadCat.
Abstract: Between 1830 and 1860, one and one-half million immigrants from the provinces which were to become part of the German Empire settled in the United States. A significant proportion of them — perhaps as many as 200,000 — were Jews, for whom the contrast between the society they entered and the one they left behind was even greater than for Protestant or Catholic Germans. The experience of these German-Jewish immigrants as they sought to reorient themselves and to reconstruct their religious and communal life in the American environment is the subject of this thesis. For a variety of reasons which are examined, the economic advance and acculturation of these immigrants proceeded at an astonishing pace. Precisely because of the rapidity of their advancement, the process through which the adjustment took place was obscured. Most observers came to believe that the achievements of the German Jews resulted from the fact that — unlike later East European Jewish immigrants — they had been substantially secularized and “westernized” by their exposure to German culture prior to their arrival in America and that in fact they had brought their radically reformed version of Judaism with them. According to this view the emergence of Reform Judaism in America could more accurately be described as a transplantation rather than a transformation.
Examination of the source materials of the 1830’s, ’40’s, and ’50’s, when the immigration was at its height, reveals that the prevailing view distorted the actual experience of adjustment. It failed to recognized the relationship between upward mobility and acculturation and to identify the dynamics through which the German-Jewish immigrants developed an American Jewish pattern. In fact, the response patterns of German Jewish immigrants to America, like those of the later East Europeans demonstrate that in the 19th as in the 20th century, “changes in Judaism have their origin in changes in the lives of Jews.”
The study examines the social, economic and cultural background of the immigrants as well as their religious attitudes and practices at the time of their arrival in America. It considers their relationship to the Jewish settlers who preceded them as well as to the total society and documents their struggle to achieve economic security and social identity. It reviews their attempts to redefine their religious and cultural ideas in the new setting and to restructure a communal apparatus which would enable them to enter fully into American society while preserving some links with the Jewish tradition of which they felt themselves a part.
Confronted by radical economic, social and intellectual challenges, German Jewish immigrants in the mid-19th century sought in the New World to maintain a balance between assimilation and distinctiveness, between change and continuity. Their experience constitutes a unique chapter in the annals of American-Jewish history and provides singular insights into the ongoing process of social adaptation.

Abstract: The author’s research project will “examine the life and work of a group of European-trained, German-speaking urban planners and architects who came to the United States during the late 1920s and 1930s,” and is part of a larger project analyzing postwar transatlantic connections in the areas of social work, consumption, cities, and business. The current project will focus on two themes–the development of individual careers in the context of migration and exile, and transatlantic exchange processes. Case studies will include Victor Gruen, Ludwig Hilberseimer, and Konrad Wachsmann.

Abstract: History of the German-American Alliance seen in the context of the political events of the time (1901-1914): conflict with Germany and declaration of war. Anti-German hysteria brought about its end. For many Americans influenced by war propaganda and a general distrust of immigrant groups, the National German-American Alliance represented a threat to both national security and the assimilation process

Abstract: This paper deals with one aspect of a larger project to describe, analyze, and preserve a record of a dialect of German, spoken in the small town of Schoenchen, Kansas as a primary language until the time of World War I, and which gradually reverted to second language status by the end of World War II. A small number of dialect speakers with varying degrees of proficiency haven been identified. All informants are bilingual. One informant has proven himself outstanding in his ability to converse fluently in the dialect. While he is only one of 13 informants total, data from his idiolect form the basis of this paper.

Notes: UMI, printed in 1988. Book, in MadCat.
Abstract: Dismayed by the political and religious environment of mid-nineteenth century Germany, a group of Roman Catholics led by Father Ambrose Oschwald, pooled their resources and migrated to North America. In the autumn of 1854 the group purchased 3,840 acres of wilderness in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, and establishd the communal settlement of St. Nazianz. Surviving initial hardships, the religious centered society experienced contentment and growth within its philosophical ideals. Following the death of Oschwald in 1873 many society members sought private title to land parcels in proportion to their input into the communal development. Several years of court contests resulted in nearly one-half of the land being deeded to individuals. By 1896, the aging membership of the society was dwindling and thus the Rome-based Society of the Divine Savior was called upon to care for them. In return, the SDS was given title to remaining communal property. The SDS established a major religious education center at St. Nazianz and today retains title to nearly 1400 acres. The village of St. Nazianz initially grew around the religious theme. Today it is a small rural crossroads community that provides retail services and retains much of this founding atmosphere. Many features of the early years that have an “old world relic” notoriety to the village remain fully evident today. Such living heritage items are recommended for preservation in order to preserve the uniqueness of St. Nazianz.

The two disciplines are very related, and both use a great variety of sources, both statistical and non-statistical. They have also both produced a large amount of research. To date, revisions of the social history of Pennsylvania have not been examined for their impact upon the conventional view of Pennsylvania German culture and ethnicity.

Johnson-Weiner, Karen M. “Community expectations and second language acquisition: English as a second language in a Swartzentruber Amish school.” Yearbook of German-American Studies, vol. 28, 1993, pp. 107-117.
Abstract: The Swartzentruber Amish parochial school near Kendrew Corners, outside of Rensselaer Falls, New York, is typical of Old Order Amish parochial schools. A one-room building flanked by outhouses and heated by a wood stove, it is attended by approximately fifteen students in grades one through eight. The Kendrew Corners school serves only five or six families. In eight years of schooling, the children attending the Kendrew Corners school will acquire English well enough to interact and compete successfully with native speakers in an “English” environment. Very different approach than mainstream schools to second language learning, yet they are successful. Their motivation is different and unusual. It is to preserve a way of life. Indirect contrast to linguists’ views of the relationship between acculturation and language acquisition, languages may be acquired as barriers to acculturation are raised.

Jones, Calvin N. “Views of America and Views of Germany in German POW Newspapers of World War II.” Yearbook of German-American Studies, vol. 17, 1982, pp. 63-70.
Abstract: “To Alfred Andersch, the life of a POW was such a positive improvement over that of the front-line soldier that he called the camp a ‘golden cage.’ Since America’s wartime enemy soon became a close ally, it is important to investigate the role of the prisoners’ American experience in modifying their opinions about the two countries. The experience was obviously very important in the political and literary development of writers like Andersch and Hans Werner Richert, for it led directly to their influential postwar intellectual journal Der Ruf and to Group 47, the writers’ circle which grew out of it, but it was probably no less important for thousands of prisoners who were to play less significant roles. . . .[I]t is likely that one of the chief sources of information about the United States and best indicators of prisoner sentiment were the newspapers published in the German language by the prisoners themselves. These camp newspapers were not all of one type, however, and the amount of information and the outlook taken toward the United States and Germany varied; it would therefore be useful to compare the pictures of the two countries conveyed by two quite different newspapers, Der Zaungast and Der Ruf.”

Abstract: In the second half of the seventeenth century, thousands of Swiss left Switzerland and settled throughout southern Protestant Germany along the Rhine River, especially in the Palatine and Alsace, which had lost much population in the Thirty Years’ War. Most adhered to their Reformed faith if possible and parich registers will indicate either “Swiss” or the more specific location of origin. Additional sources for finding the place of origin include (German) town citizenship records, and Swiss synod and parish court records, especially because Swiss citizenship is held at the municipal level and thus those surnames remain over long periods of time.

Notes: From William Richardson, a descendant: “Most of the information that I know about Anthony Shomo is based on the research of others. He was born in Reading, Berks County, Pa., on December 29, 1756 to Joseph and Anna Maria Shomo; immigrants from Switzerland. Just a note of interest, the name Shomo is a shortened and Anglicised version of the name Chaumontet which was their actual surname prior to immigration. One source that I am currently trying to verify says that Anthony Shomo enlisted in the Pennsylvania 4th Battalion in 1780 during the American Revolution. He married Elizabeth Rebecca Obold in 1785 and together they had at least 6 children. Sometime after 1806 Anthony and his family moved from Berks County to New Market, Shenandoah County, VA. Anthony died in 1812 and was buried at the Lutheran Reformation Church Cemetery in New Market.”.
Abstract: Charms, translated from German, originally written or dictated in late eighteenth-century Virginia by Anthony Schomo, or Shomo. The charms follow an ancient German tradition going back to pagan days, beginning as ‘Zaubersprueche.’

Abstract: In 1731 many German Lutherans left Salzburg to settle in East Prussia and Lithuania rather than forsake their Protesant faith. In the following years many of these Salzburger Lutherans left Europe to settle in Georgia. The settlement was called Ebenezer. For the first few years it was a disaster with failed crops, low supplies, and rampant sickness and death. By 1738 the first gristmill was built, and the first sawmill in 1746. Through these mills the Salzburgers gained economic self-sufficiency.

Abstract: “Wenn auch die Forschung ueber das deutsche Amerikabild von 1933-1945 in der Historiographie ueber Hitler, den Nationalsozialismus und das Dritte Reich nur einen bescheidenen Platz einnimmt und eine Gesamtdarstellung zu diesem Thema bis vor kurzur Zeit fehlte, so gestatten die publizierten Einzeluntersuchungen doch den Versuch, einige gut bestaetigte Hypothesen ueber die ‘Amerikabilder’ der Deutschen von 1933-1945 — ueber Urteile, Vorurteile, Klischees, Stereotypen, Feind- und Hassbilder — in systematischer Ordnung vorzutragen. Das ist die Absicht des folgenden Essays, zu dem der Autor durch seine Untersuchung ueber Hitlers Amerikabild angeregt wurde.”
