DUTCH AMERICAN VOICES: Letters from the United States, 1850-1930, Herbert J. Brinks (Editor)

7 DUTCH AMERICAN VOICES: Letters from the United States, 1850-1930
Herbert J. Brinks (Editor)
520 pages, cloth, Cornell University Press
This volume offers a rich sampling of correspondence from the Dutch Immigrant Letter Collection at Calvin College. Sent from immigrants to friends and family in the Netherlands, the letters describe the writers' new lives and the daily experiences of becoming American.

“Dutch American Voices is a wonderful scrapbook that should be a part of every library in the Midwest and every home of those Americans of Dutch ancestry. Brinks should be commended not only for this volume but also for a lifetime of collecting and preserving this precious legacy in the Dutch Immigrant Letter Collection at Calvin College. His work is a labor of love as well as a service to scholarship.”--Michigan History Magazine

"This book succeeds admirably in putting flesh and blood on the Dutch immigration experience that this reviewer and his students have compiled and quantified. The translation is eminently readable and editorial notes explain every obscurity. Maps, photographs, and letter facsimiles enhance the narratives, and each letter series opens with a brief biography of the correspondents and descriptions of the sending and receiving communities."--Robert P. Swierenga, Journal of American Ethnic History (Roger Haydon says rave, Swierenga is the best-known of all Dutch-American specialists.)
