Portfolio Portrays German Spirit Through Missouri Churches
Wickersham's "The German Churches of Missouri"
Dr. John Wickersham, professor of philosophy at Maryville University, embarked on a comprehensive photographic project, "The German Churches of Missouri." More than two hundred churches serving German communities are scattered across the counties which flank the Mississippi River and the Missouri River. Dr. Wickersham photographed church exteriors, interiors, decoration, ritual objects and furnishings to record the German culture as exhibited in the churches.
