>From "History of Buchanan County, Missouri, Published 1881, St. Joseph
Steam Printing Company, Printers, Binders, Etc., St. Joseph, Missouri.

Louis Theip, Principal of the German-English School, was born in
Prussia in 1831, and came to the United States in 1866. He received
a good education in his native country, and afterwards taught for
fourteen years. Thus teaching has been his ambition and life work.
He lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for twelve years, and in San
Antonio, Texas for one year. In 1880, he came to St. Joseph, Missouri
and was soon employed as Principal of the German-English School, a
position he continues to fill satisfactorily. He married Miss Lizzie
Blummoth in Germany, in 1860. They have two children: Emil and Jon-
athan. Emil is at the naval school in Annapolis, Maryland, in his
fourth year, and about to become an assistant engineer. Mr. Theip is
a fine scholar, a successful teacher, and a man whose moral character
is above reproach.
