This exhibit uses archival materials housed in the Ruth Lilly Special Collections and Archives and narrative text from George Theodore Probst's, The Germans in Indianapolis: 1840-1918 (1989) and Theodore Stempfel's, Fifty Years of Unrelenting German Aspirations in Indianapolis: 1848-1898 (1991) to demonstrate the influence of German-Americans on the culture of Indianapolis, particularly focusing on their impact on music, architecture, and physical education. While it suggests the role immigrants have played in shaping American culture, it also explores the cultural conflict encountered by German Americans in Indianapolis and the process of acculturation by which they adjusted to this conflict.
