Description

Excerpt from 1864-1914; Commemorative Volume, Fiftieth Anniversary, Central Wesleyan College, Warrenton, Missouri: May-June, 1914 HE month of June 1914 will complete fifty years of uninterrupt ed service for the educational institution at Warrenton, Mo., and sixty years of service if the career of its fore-runner in Quincy, Illinois, be included. The beginnings of these schools of learning date back to 1852 when a company of German Methodist ministers met in Winches ter, and determined to form a German American college in order to establish better educational advantages for their children and to rear an educated ministry. This plan, however, was abandoned and in 1854 these German ministers united with their English brethren in founding the English and German College in Quincy, Illinois. For nine years the school struggled with financial and other difficulties and finally the English department succumbed. Through the indomitable energy of Rev. H. A. Koch the German Department maintained itself until June 1864. No records of these first ten years of educational work of German Methodists are extant though they must have been very fruitful years as many German Methodist ministers received their training in the Quincy School. Rev. John Walther was the first principal and Prof. J. M. Eull taught for several years, but the soul of the school was the Rev. Hermann A. Koch.
