Karen Johnson-Weiner ’75

Karen Johnson-Weiner ’75 retired in 2016 but continued her research of the Amish, publishing Lives of Amish Women (Hopkins 2020) and All About the Amish (Herald Press 2020). Now her researching days are officially over. This past June, she donated her papers (including extensive correspondence with members of Amish communities) to the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies, at Elizabethtown College in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The papers will be housed in the Earl H. and Anna F. Hess Archives and available to anyone doing research on the Amish and other Anabaptist groups. She reports that she continues to visit Amish friends regularly.
