Student power

Jessica Schoser is up for election at the student elections at Mannheim University on 12 and 13 April 2011. Jessica is third year student in business administration and will finish her Bachelor degree this summer.

Jessica is member of the student organisation RCDS and runs for a seat in the university's students' committee AStA. Campaign issues are crowded lecture halls, excessive workload and waste of tuition fees. If elected Jessica will have to tackle these issues which seem as long-standing as the invention of universities themselves.

The glazier

Donald Schoser of Hatboro, Pennsylvania was glazier. He worked in particular at the Bryn Athyn Cathedral near Philadelphia, PA which belongs to the New Church congregation.

The cathedral was built in the early 20th century and is famous for its stained glass windows. To manufacture these windows the medieval technique of making stained glass had to be revived.

In his book 'Bryn Athyn Cathedral: The Building of a Church' published in 1971, Bruce Glenn describes the making of the stained glass. The book also features a photo of Donald assembling a stained glass window. While the book does not mention Donald's name, the link is made by a member of the New Church congregation. He personally knew Donald and has published some memories of Donald alongside some other 'wise and happy thoughts'.
