The first German immigrants in Louisville were shoemakers, bakers, butchers, blacksmiths and brewers—literally everything from basket makers to carriage manufacturers. Later, these industrious immigrants became captains of industry and influence in the city. August Prante's family built many of the magnificent organs for Louisville churches. Abraham Flexner was a pioneer in medical education, while Louis Brandeis was the first Jew to serve on the United States Supreme Court. William George Stuber, the son of Louisville photographer Michael Stuber, became the president of the Eastman Kodak Company. C. Robert Ullrich and Victoria A. Ullrich present a series of essays detailing how German immigrants shaped the industry and culture of Louisville.
