Menno Simons Lectures
In 1950, the John P. and Carolina Schrag Kaufman family established the Menno Simons Lectureship Endowment. This fund promotes research and public lectures by recognized scholars relating to Anabaptist-Mennonite history, thought, life and culture, both past and present. In 1997, the family of William E. and Meta Goering Juhnke contributed substantially to the endowment. The Kaufman and Juhnke families had their roots in the Eden Mennonite Church, Moundridge, Kan.
