2127 Carl Schurz: Reformer (1829-1906), by Claude Moore Fuess (read 6 Feb 1988) Schurz was born 2 Mar 1829 in a castle in Germany (his parents were tenants on the castle farm) and died 14 May 1905. His really was an amazing life. He came to the U.S. in 1852 knowing no English, but was a candidate for Lt. Gov of Wisconsin in 1857. He grew to be a master orator, was a general in the Civil War, and Republican Senator from Missouri from 1869 to 1875 and Secretary of the Interior in Hayes' Administration. He supported Greeley in 1872, Cleveland in 1884, 1888, and 1892, Bryan in 1900 and Parker in 1904. He was usually right in his positions. This biography is usually laudatory and is not too penetrating, but it was worth reading. ( )
