Comments

I translated this article from the German Wikipedia because there was almost nothing on this man or the administrative team that designed 'Bismarck's' social insurance program for the new German state. (I was also interested in the co-incidence of our mutual last name, but it appears there is no family connection.) Lohmann's religiously based social reform activities parallel those of several important religiously inspired reformers in the U.S.
