Wilhelm Falk (1904–1969)

32 cm of textual records and one photograph.

Biographical sketch
Wilhelm Falk was born on April 30, 1904, in Steinfeld, Chortitza. In February of 1924, he married Helene Guenther and soon thereafter immigrated to Canada. Four children were born to this couple. In Manitoba, around 1927, he was encouraged to preach. Some time thereafter he attended the Winnipeg Bible Institute. He began his church work as a city missionary in Winnipeg under the Mennonite Brethren Church. In 1953, he was called to the North Kildonan Mennonite Brethren church in Winnipeg as pastor. In 1965, he began his work as pastor in the Morden Mennonite Brethren church.

In the fall of 1967, he became ill with cancer and died on May 14, 1969.

Scope and content
The material in this collection contains two basic elements. The predominant one is sermon notes written by Wilhelm Falk in his capacity as minister. The sermons do not have dates on them so it is difficult to know when and where they were used. The second kind of material is correspondence to Falk. Some church minutes also exist in the collection. Most of the material is in German, some of the correspondence is in English.

Custodial history

The custodial history of this collection is unknown.
