Published in English in 1909 as The Settlement of the German Coast of Louisiana and the Creoles of German Descent. The author has been described by scholars as the leader and "standard-bearer of culture for the German community of New Orleans." This work expanded the definition of Creole, formerly reserved for those of French or Spanish descent.
