Title: A history of the Mennonites, particularly in Manitoba
Authors: Willows, Andrew
Issue Date: 1924
Abstract: In writing this brief history of the Mennonites, it was found that the material from which to gather information was very limited. Professor C.H. Wendel of Bethel College, Newton, Kansas, has written a brief History of the Mennonites and their Religion, in German. All references to the religion of these people were obtained from this work. For information regarding the early history of the Mennonites in Europe, and their settlement in Prussia, the writer is indebted to Rev. C. Van der Smissen of Berne, Indiana, for the loan of a History of the Mennonites written by D.K. Kassel, and to Professor C. Henry Smith's book, entitled "The Mennonites of America". The chapters dealing with the settlement of the Mennonites in Pennsylvania and Kansas were compiled almost entirely from these two sources and from information gleaned from a pamphlet published by C.B. Schmidt, Commissioner of Immigration of the Rock Island Railway Lines, kindly furnished to the writer by Rev. C. Van der Smissen.
