Dr. Don Heinrich Tolzmann:

"Rudolf Cronau provides a concise overview of German-American history to the time of the First World War.  Rudolf Cronau was not only an historian and freelance journalist for the German press, but also an artist who had studied at the art academy in Duesseldorf, his works usually contain numerous illustrations, and pay particular attention to German-American culture, especially literature, music, and the arts."
