Baltzer, Adolf

Baltzer, Adolf a German Protestant theologian, was born May 16, 1817, at Berlin, where he studied theology, which he continued at Halle. In 1845 he came to the United States, and commenced his labors in the state of Missouri. In 1849 he was called as pastor of St. Paul's to St. Louis, but in the following year went to St. Charles, where he labored for eight years, when he was appointed professor of the German Theological Seminary at Femme Osage, Mo., which was founded by the German Evangelical Synod of the West. In 1866 he succeeded the Rev. Mr. Wall as president of the synod and occupied that position until his death, Jan. 28, 1877. Baltzer was a man of great energy and gubernatorial ability, and to these qualities the Evangelical Synod of North America, as it is now called, owes in part its growth. (B. P.)
