Liederkranz Board in the very early 1950s

This is probably the Liederkranz board in the very early 1950s.  From left to right are: Hermann  Stichweh, Karl Amelang ( the choir director), Willie Neff, Fritz Warzinski, and Otto Kuntscher. This looks like it was made by a professional photographer. From Left to Right:

  • Herman Stichweh was an insurance representative for a American National Insurance Company in Galveston. This firm is still in business and a major provider of jobs for Galveston citizens.
  • Karl Amelang ran a Shell Station just off the Gulf Freeway.
  • Willi Neff operated a dry cleaning business.
  • Fritz Warzinski was retired after  working at Shell Oil for over 30 years.
  • Otto Kuntscher, the "official" poet  of the Liederkranz worked for many years as a painter at Houston Poster Advertising company. I do recall that for one Christmas (late 1940s-early 1950s) he placed a billboard size illustration on the stage of the old hall showing the nativity scene in Bethlehem.  I am grateful to Karl Micklitz for this new information.  .
