Remarkable that Samuel would change the spelling of his given name in the middle of his career, all the more because Germans constituted Minnesota’s largest European ethnic group since the later nineteenth century, despite the state’s reputation as a Scandinavian citadel. Maybe it’s a testament to the persistence of anti-German WWI sentiment in the state.

Gerry Samuel was GERARD in MSO. "GERHARD" was considered too Teutonic for
tender post-war sensibilities.
