Description

The Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church was the predecessor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It existed for over a century (1860-1962) and was the largest organization ever founded by Swedish-Americans, as well as the largest of the Swedish-American denominations. In terms of literary output, Swedish-Americans were among the most productive of ethnic groups within North America during the nineteenth and twentieth century. They founded newspapers and magazines, established publishing houses, published books, founded literary societies and interest groups, and recorded their memories and aspirations. In The Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church in Print, author Virginia P. Follstad has identified over 320 periodicals published by the Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church, its agencies, and by various institutions related to it. First naming these journals, magazines, and newspapers, the book then explains their contents, when and by whom they were published, and where materials are located in libraries and archives in the U.S., Canada, and Sweden.
