German-language newspapers
thrived as Germans became Indiana's
largest immigrant population by 1850.
The Täglicher Telegraph und Tribüne,
located near here, was among over
175 German-language newspapers
published in Indiana, 1843-1920.
These newspapers were important
vehicles for readers in integrating
and maintaining their cultural
identities with American values.

U.S. entry into WWI in 1917 created
suspicion and antipathy toward
German-American schools, churches,
clubs and newspapers. Several of these
Indiana newspapers, which had tried to
present balanced war coverage, closed
by 1918. This included the Täglicher
Telegraph und Tribüne
and papers in
Berne, South Bend, Logansport,
Evansville, and Terre Haute.
