SCOPE AND CONTENT
Collection of research notes, correspondence, photos, and books documenting Pastor Weiser’s interest in Pennsylvania German culture and decorative arts, particularly in fraktur. Also includes information about Pastor Weiser’s personal collection of Pennsylvania German antiques and part of his personal library.
An important part of the collection are Pastor Weiser’s research notes about fraktur. Included are notes about fraktur artists, copies of articles and books about fraktur, information about frakturs made in places other than Pennsylvania, and information about the motifs used and about the different forms which fraktur took (such as book plates and taufschein). The collection includes a great many slides and color transparencies, as well as photocopies of fraktur, but no original examples. The artists’ files include biographical information and reproductions of the works of the artists. (Additional slides of fraktur are found in Series II, subseries C.)
Correspondence, other research notes, and photos and slides are found in Series II. Pastor Weiser corresponded with a number of people and institutions about all his many research interests. His research notes document his interests in various aspects of Pennsylvania German culture, church history, furniture of the Mahantongo Valley in Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania German dialect. Included in this series are photos, particularly of tombstones and show towels, and a few late 20th century paper cuts and fraktur given to or collected by Pastor Weiser. As well, this series includes slides, including fraktur, show towels, and tombstones; there are also a number of slides are from Pastor Weiser’s trips to Europe and Israel.
Of additional interest are the files of Guy Reinert, John Baer Stoudt, John Joseph Stoudt, and photos by Charles S. Rice, all in Series III. Guy Reinert wrote about Pennsylvania German culture, and his files include research notes, photos, and newspaper clippings. Of particular interest are his photos of the potters Jacob Medinger, and Isaac and Thomas Stahl, the work of the blacksmith Henry Driehaus, and two horn combs made in Pennsylvania. Charles S. Rice took photos of the Amish in the 1940s; some of the ones in this collection were used in his book Meet the Amish (Rutgers University Press, 1947). Father and son John Baer Stoudt (1878-1944) and John Joseph Stoudt (b.1911) collected Pennsylvania German poems, ballads, children’s lore, superstitions, weather predictions, and other folklore sayings. Pastor Weiser obtained some of their manuscripts.
Series IV contains information, such as invoices and photographs, which documents the collections of antiques acquired by Pastor Weiser and his friend Pastor Larry Neff. Finally, a great many books round out the collection. Some of these are publications in or about the Pennsylvania German dialect. A number of books are about the Amish or Mennonites. These books are listed on this finding aid and each has its own record in WinterCat, the on-line catalog.
The collection is divided into several series. Series I (acc. 10x73) is arranged into general files, files about fraktur, files about forms of and motifs used on fraktur, and files about fraktur artists. Slides of fraktur are in separate boxes at the end of this series.
Accession 12x12 is divided into Series II-V. Series II, subseries A is correspondence of Pastor Weiser; subseries B is research notes on various topics, including the furniture of the Mahantongo Valley, but most especially on Pennsylvania Germans and the Pennsylvania German dialect; subseries C is photographs and slides, including slides and photographs of tombstones, slides of textiles (most especially show towels), and slides of Pastor Weiser’s trips to Europe and Israel. Accession 15x84, photos of tombstones, are also part of Series II.C.
Series III contains the papers and photos of Guy Reinert, Charles S. Rice, and the Stoudts.
