Biographical Note

Ernst H. Correll was born 5 April 1894 in Heilbronn, Germany. Correll came to newly reopened Goshen College with Harold S. Bender in 1924. Correll taught at American University, Washington, D. C., from 1928 until retirement. Correll and Bender founded the Mennonite Historical Society, the Mennonite Quarterly Review (1927- ), and Studies in Anabaptist and Mennonite History. Correll contributed scholarly notes for early stages of the Conrad Grebel letters translation project (CRR 4:;17-21). An early proponent of socioeconomic interpretation in Anabaptist-Mennonite studies, his dissertation, begun under Max Weber (1864-1920) and directed by Ernst Troeltsch, is unsurpassed on 18th century Mennonite agriculturalists spreading the agricultural revolution, and in defining the legal status of 18th- and 19th-century Mennonites. He published on sources covering Russian Mennonite immigration into North America, 1874 ff., and also on the contributions of family histories (genealogy) contribution to broader Mennonite history. He died in Salt Lake City on 24 June 1982.
