Chapter 1: “In the Eye of the Beholder” (ein Bildungsroman)

In this chapter, we’ll explore the inspiration behind creating Explore Missouri’s German Heritage, the beginnings of MH’s German Heritage program, and the fascinating evolution of this publication.

Missouri Humanities has spent the last several years forming partnerships and developing programming dedicated to commemorating and interpreting Missouri’s rich German cultural heritage. In 2019, Missouri Humanities partnered with Missouri Life Publishing to create a “book-a-zine” exploring the many facets of “Germanness” in our state: Explore Missouri’s German Heritage. Authored by Dr. W. Arthur Mehrhoff, the publication serves as both a travel guide and coffee table book.
