German-American Immigrant Entrepreneurs Discussed at the 40th Annual Symposium of the Society for German-American Studies in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio hosted the Society for German-American Studies’ 40th Annual Symposium, dedicated to the general topic “German Seed in Texas (and other) Soil: Weighing Location and Culture.” The place was well chosen: From the mid-19th century, today’s economic and cultural center of South Texas faced a large influx of German immigrants, who accounted for more than 10 percent of the local population in the 1890s.
