||This article appeared under the title “Jubiläumsnachgedanken” in the Quarterly (Theologische Quartalschrift) in Volume 20 (1923), beginning with No. 1 (January). The anniversary referred to was the 75th of the Missouri Synod and the 50th of the Synodical Conference. This appraisal of Dr. C. F. W. Walther by Prof. August Pieper, one of his students, is being published as a tribute to Walther on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of his birth and the 100th anniversary of his death. The translation is a revision of one made originally by Rev. R. E. Wehrwein of Rochester, Minnesota.
