Description

Papers of a Norwegian-born Lutheran clergyman who attended Albion Academy, Augustana College (Paxton, Illinois), and Augsburg Seminary (Marshall, Wisconsin) and who served pastorates in Kansas, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Boe was the father of L. W. Boe. The correspondence, consisting largely of letters to Boe written by clergy, laity, and relatives, describes economic, social, and church conditions especially in Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, and Wisconsin; provides information regarding problems connected with Marshall Academy and Augsburg Seminary; and discusses topics currently under discussion in the church, e.g., such concepts as professor fund, proselytism, "den nye retning," "erklæringer," "Wisconsinisme," and "Augustanaisme." Included are three manuscript articles by Bøe, entitled "Protest" (1885),"Om Augsburgernes Principer" (1898), and "Det engelske sprog indenfor vort samfund"(ca. 1920). Most of the collection consists of correspondence with family and friends, including parishioners of Bøe in Kansas, Michigan and Iowa. Includes a number of Civil War letters.
