Rev. Dr. George Richard Kraus (1924-1989)

Born on November 26, 1924, in Plainfield, New Jersey, he began his study for the ministry in the Preparatory School of Concordia Collegiate Institute, Bronxville, New York, from whose junior college he graduated after the autumn term of 1944. Pastor Kraus graduated from Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis, in 1949, having spent a year's vicarage in San Antonio, Texas. His thesis title was "The Concept of God in Christian Science." He was ordained into the holy ministry for service to St. Matthew's Lutheran Church for the Deaf in New York in 1949. Thus, in 1989 he completed forty years of service to the church. During this forty-year ministry George Kraus served not only St. Matthew's Church for the Deaf in New York, but Prince of Peace Church for the Deaf in Minneapolis, Holy Cross Church for the Deaf in St. Louis, St. Peter's Church in Brooklyn, New York, and Redeemer Lutheran Church in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. After service to St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in New Britain, Connecticut, he came to Concordia Theological Seminary as associate professor in pastoral theology in 1982.
