About This Event

Join us for a Dear Miss Conrad Virtual event with Dr. Betsy Pike. "Dear Miss Conrad, Capital University in WWII" is the second student-led documentary project to come out of Capital University’s Immersion course.

The documentary resurrects an important narrative and cast of characters out of archived materials, historic records, and letters from deployed students and alumni to their beloved university head librarian, Miss Dorthea Conrad, during World War II. With insight and historical context offered by Capital and Trinity Lutheran Seminary faculty, Dear Miss Conrad tells the story of Capital’s struggle to distinguish and articulate the promise of its German-Lutheran identity against the horrors of Holocaust and World War II in an increasingly Jewish community and America’s anti-German sentiment.
