First president of the LCMS – addendum to earlier post

CFW Walther - First President of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod

This photo of an elderly CFW Walther is an addendum to an earlier post.  We find it useful to put a face to a name. In this case, an unforgetable one. This is apparently one of four extant photos of him.

CFW Walther (1811-1887), the first president of LCMS argued in support of slavery. His behaviour and ethics will wait for another post.
