Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of material related to the professional and personal lives of Moravian missionaries William Henry Weinland and Caroline Yost Weinland.
William Henry Weinland (1861-1930) was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In 1884 he graduated from the Moravian College and Theological Seminary in Bethlehem and in March 1885 he married Caroline Yost. The same year the couple went to Bethel, Alaska to serve as missionaries to the Alaskan Natives. When ill-health in the family forced them to return to the United States, Weinland became pastor of the Moravian Church at Gracehill, Ohio from 1887 to 1889, until he was assigned to work among the Native Americans of Southern California. The Weinlands devoted nearly forty years to missionary work among the Native Americans, especially at the Morongo Indian Reservation near Banning, California.
