Oberlin's Namesake: John Frederick Oberlin (1740-1826)

Memorial booklet (video)

After J. F. Oberlin's death in 1826, young women in his parish made small memorial booklets with illustrations in watercolors of their villages and Oberlin's grave at Fouday. This one is heart-shaped, with folded paper that unfolds to reveal the illustrations. They were gifted to Oberlin's friends and admirers.
