Carl Bernhard Schmidt

Two portraits of Carl Bernhard Schmidt who was born September 7, 1843 in Dippildisvalde, Saxony. After attending public school, Queen Anna's College, and Dresden Commercial College, he took a position as a foreign correspondence. In August 1864, he sailed for New York where he spent a week before traveling west to St. Louis, Missouri. During his time in St. Louis, he taught music and worked in a mercantile house. In August, 1866, he married Miss Mattie Fraim and two years later he came to Lawrence, Kansas. While in Lawrence he was an active correspondent for German newspapers, which led to his appointment as commissioner of immigration for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad. Schmidt moved to Topeka in January, 1873, and he remained in that position until most of the lands were sold. He is credited with bringing many of the Mennonite families to Kansas. In 1880 he established the London office of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe and remained in that office for three years. After leaving the railroad, he was involved in land investments and later worked for the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad Company in Europe.
