DR. ALBERT SCHWEITZER The accomplishments of service toward mankind of Dr. Albert Schweitzer are considerable, including a Nobel Peace Prize. Take some time to learn more about this remarkable individual. • In 1875, Schweitzer was born into a German family with a long line of ministers, organists, and educators. So it made perfect sense for him to begin theological studies in 1893 at the University of Strasbourg in Alsace. Seven years later, with a doctorate in philosophy, he began preaching at St. Nicholas Church in Strasbourg. • In addition to religious courses, Schweitzer had studied piano and organ with the head of the music department at the Paris Conservatory. As well as his preaching and several highranking administrative posts at a theological college, Schweitzer had a renowned musical career as a concert organist. He earned money for his education from professional musical engagements, as well as publishing a book on organ building and playing when he was 31. That same year, he penned a book on the life of Bach and a theological title The Quest of the Historical Jesus. • By age 30, Schweitzer had decided to go to Africa as a missionary, but rather than as a pastor, he had the desire to go as a doctor. He began medical school and eight years later, he had obtained his M.D. He married at 37, and at 38, he and his wife founded a hospital at

The 2014 MINNESOTA
Lambarene in French Equatorial Africa. During their first nine months, they examined nearly 2,000 patients, many of whom had traveled for days and hundreds of miles to reach him. • World War I broke out one year after the Schweitzers’ arrival in Africa. Because they were German citizens in a French colony, in 1917 they were sent to an internment camp as prisoners of war. A year later they were released and returned to Europe where he earned a living playing organ recitals and giving lectures. Their daughter was born in 1919. • In 1924, Albert Schweitzer returned to Lambarene alone. His wife, not well enough to accompany him, remained behind with their daughter Rhena. It was in Lambarene that he would spend most of the remainder of his life, except for occasional short visits home. He used the money from royalties and lecture fees, along with donations from across the globe to enlarge the hospital to 70 buildings. In 1953, at age 78, Schweitzer was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian efforts, and used the $33,000 prize money to start a leprosy clinic. • Although daughter Rhena saw little of her father while growing up, as an adult with grown children, she traveled to Lambarene to work with him. He asked her to serve as the administrator of the hospital, and after his death at age 90, Rhena took over that role, a position she held for many years. • Throughout his life in Lambarene, Albert Schweitzer was their doctor, surgeon, pastor, village administrator, and building superintendent, all the while remaining a scholar, author, historian, and musician. In his words, “Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.”
