Mennonite Historical Series, sponsored by the Historical Committee under the General Conference Board of Education and Publication, was started in 1949 when From the Steppes to the Prairies appeared. The Committee members at that time were S. F. Pannabecker, chairman; Cornelius Krahn, secretary; J. Herbert Fretz, J. H. Janzen, E. E. Leisy, and J. D. Unruh. The second publication was Leland and Marvin Harder's Plockhoy from Zurikzee. The Study of a Dutch Reformer in Puritan England and Colonial America (1952). The third was the study by Gustav E. Reimer and Gustave R. Gaeddert, Exiled by the Czar. Cornelius Jansen and the Great Mennonite Migration, 1874 (1956). Hans Fischer's Jakob Hutter was in print (1956). The Historical Committee selected, edited, and published the books of this series through the means of budget allowances and other sources, and the Mennonite Publication Office, Newton, Kansas, marketed the books. As a rule the books consisted of original studies in the field of Anabaptist-Mennonite history and thought.
