Due to the unawareness of these contributions by the general public and the lack of historical facts in the Fort Hays Kansas State College library concerning these German-Russian colonies, the writer selected this thesis problem: "Religious and Educational Contributions of German- Russians to the Development of Rush and Ellis Counties, Kansas." In developing the thesis the following plan obtains: (a) a statement of facts concerning the German-Russian emigration to the State of Kansas. (b) the development of the seven original colonies: Liebenthal, Catherine, Victoria, Munjor, Pfeifer, Schoenchen, and Hays. (c) the contribution of each colony to the field of religion and education. (d) the summary of each colony's contributions and conclusions drawn therefrom.
