Dates of existence


This fonds contains records relating to Edwin B. Dunke of Kitchener, Ont., the Benton St. Baptist Church, the German Baptist Church of Berlin and the Dunke & Co. grocery store. Other than what is evident from the documents, there is no biographical information available.
E.B. Dunke served as treasurer, ca. 1920, of the German Baptist Church of Berlin, also called the Benton St. Baptist Church, located there since 1852. "In 1890 English-speaking Baptists were invited to conduct their services on alternate Sunday evenings and in March, 1918 the German services were discontinued. Two years later the church separated from the Eastern Conference of German Baptist churches to unite with the Ontario and Quebec conference and in the early 1930's declared itself an independent Baptist church. In 1953 it became part of the Fellowship of Evangelical churches in Canada." (Waterloo Historical Society 52 (1964): 82-83)
