Biographical Sketch

Abram Arthur Kroeker, son of Abram Kroeker and Helene Wiens Kroeker, was born in Winkler, Manitoba in 1892 and died in 1981. He married Elizabeth Nickel (1894–1981) in 1914. From 1920 to 1922 he attended the Biola Bible School in Los Angeles. He was one of the original sponsor-founders of the Winkler Bible Institute in 1926, was a member of the Winkler board from its inception, and taught Sunday School education there from 1929–1944. Kroeker aggressively promoted Sunday School work, especially the graded teaching principle, in the Mennonite Brethren Conferences of Canada and United States, and was largely responsible for the progress in teacher training and in the adoption of graded lessons in Canada. He was chairman of the Sunday School Committee of the Canadian Mennonite Brethren Conference since its formation in 1933 to 1957. Kroeker was also the secretary of the Manitoba Mennonite Brethren Conference for some time.

Kroeker was involved in basically two activities throughout his life: agriculture and church work, largely the educational branch of the church. He founded Camp Arnes, buying the land in 1936. The camp began functioning in 1949. He was ordained in the Winkler Mennonite Brethren Church in 1941.

He began farming on his own in 1928, and was an innovator from the beginning, always on the cutting edge of technology. He was chairman of the Canadian Vegetable Producers Association for 30 years. He was inducted into the Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame in summer 1990.

Custodial History

The custodial history of this fonds has different stages. In 1974, A.A. Kroeker donated many copies of early conference yearbooks and other materials. In June 1981 Bert Friesen, Winnipeg, donated the tapes and transcription. In July 1990, Don Kroeker (son), of Winkler, donated two boxes of various documents. Eileen Kroeker, wife of Don Kroeker, donated more photographs, textual records, correspondence, and other publications in February, 1997. The research papers were compiled by Bert Friesen and deposited by Peter Kroeker on Dec. 1, 1998.

Scope and Content

Included in the Abram A. Kroeker fonds are 3 tapes, 1972 interviews between Harold Jantz, editor of the Mennonite Brethren Herald, and A.A. Kroeker. Subject content is Winkler Bible Institute, conference affairs, and family life. The tapes, available in transcript form in the A.A. Kroeker fonds, are confidential.

Kroeker also donated 38 negatives called “Excerpts of Diary of Jacob Wiens, Exodus from Russia” 1876. Jacob Wiens was the father to A.A. Kroeker’s mother. The fonds also includes two reels of 16 mm film created by A.A. Kroeker about Camp Arnes (1952) and the Ashern Church baptism (1959); 8 slides of unveiling of cairn to commemorate the first Mennonite Brethren Church in Canada (1963); and 50 photographs. All of these materials have been placed in appropriate places in Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies.

Textual materials in this fonds demonstrate Kroeker’s love for the Bible School and the Sunday School, for people, and for farming. Interesting historical and genealogical materials are also part of this fonds. Most of the sermon notes are Kroeker’s notes taken from presentations by other speakers. The correspondence concerns the Winkler Bible School, Sunday School conventions, Choral workshops (Gesung Kursus), Bethel Hospital, Winnipeg City Mission, Evangelical Teachers Association and MBBC. Many of the records in this fonds are undated.
