“This study employs individual-level socioeconomic data contained in Prussian tax rolls and local parish records to reconstruct the pre-migration experience in northwestern Germany of a sizeable group of immigrants who settled in Osage County, Missouri, in the mid-nineteenth century. Based on the analysis of these data, the study argues that rural German peasant society was not one dimensional in nature…but rather far more intricate and multi-faceted in terms of socioeconomic class and land ownership.”

“This essay examine German perceptions of Benjamin Franklin’s life and work. The approach is that of an overview, letting a few representative writers come to word…. Notwithstanding the ‘many faces’ of Franklin that will be alluded to in the following, he is seen here in the main as anticipating an American pragmatism that differs markedly from the idealist preoccupations of German thought…. The flaws in Franklin’s character and conduct, so very much present in the critical eyes of his countrymen, tend to be overlooked by his European admirers in the light of his virtues and accomplishments.”

“Folk doctors and traditional remedies retained a measure of some popularity well into the middle of the twentieth century” among the Volga German settlers in western Kansas, perhaps because the methods of the folk doctors were more gentle and less threatening than the practices of professional physicians. While the religious component in some of the healing practices may have reduced the patient’s anxiety and thus contributed to the healing process, it may be that the special relationship based on a common language and shared cultural background played the most important role in the persistence of folk medicine and folk doctors among the Volga Germans.

Lathrop, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin. Compares this information with other publications by German emigrants designed “to offer advice to fellow Germans regarding Wisconsin as a desirable place for settlement. The conclusion constitutes an attempt to determine which of the mentioned sources was best suited to provide, and indeed did provide, crucial information and assistance to the German emigrant.”
