In the early morning of Tuesday, May 6, the Lord called Dr. Ludwig Ernest Fuerbringer to his eternal rest. More than fourscore years he was permitted to live and labor on this earth. His ministerial training he received at Concordia College, Fort Wayne, and at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. After a pastorate at Frankenmuth, Mich., from 1885 to 1893, he served on the faculty of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, for a period of fifty years. The theological faculty of our sister synod in Australia honored him with the degree of Doctor of Divinity, and Valparaiso with the degree of Doctor of Letters. Besides his work in the classroom at the Seminary, he for more than forty-five years (1896-1912; 1917-1947), until a few weeks before his departure, edited Der Lutheraner.
