The archives of Wartburg Theological Seminary contain the archival records of the seminary; the German Lutheran Synod of Iowa, 1854-1930; and Region 5 of the ELCA which covers the states of Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Upper Michigan.

Particularly valuable collections include:

  2. The Iowa Synod Correspondence file—about 10,000 letters to the leadership of the Iowa Synod, 1850-1900
  3. More than 20 original letters from Wilhelm Loehe, many translated; and
  4. The actual records of over 100 dissolved congregations in the ELCA Region 5 area.

The archives are open in the morning by appointment. Call 563-589-0320 (mornings) or ask at the library desk.
