The Story of Father Van Den Broek -- A Study of Holland and the Early Settlement of Wisconsin by Sister Mary Alphonsa Corry, O.S.D.
The Story of Father Van den Broek, originally published in 1907, describes the life and work of this missionary priest from the Netherlands. Father Theodore J. Van den Broek (1783-1851), a Dominican Priest, began is early missionary work in the Ohio River Valley. Later he came to Wisconsin to work among the Indians, teaching them not only the faith, but how to read, write and cultivate the land. His first church in Little Chute was a wigwam. His missionary activities took him all over Wisconsin, ministering to numerous Indian settlements. When the Menominee Indians were moved from Little Chute, Father Van den Broek recruited his native country people to immigrate to Wisconsin. In 1848 he brought three ships of Hollanders to settle Little Chute. The account of the trip across the ocean of the Maria Magdalena, on which Father Van den Broek sailed, is included in this book. 86 pages, softcover.
