History / Biographical Note

Biographical Note

This material was gathered by Agnes Beveridge Ferguson in preparation for a doctoral thesis which was to be a biography of Johan Gottfried Kinkel (1815-1882) showing the political and social life in Germany at the middle of the 19th century. Miss Ferguson died in 1924 before completing her thesis and her notes were given to Alfred Robert Willy de Jonge who used them as the foundation for his doctoral thesis, "Gottfried Kinkel as a political and social thinker" (Columbia University, 1926).
