History

In 1855, Lutheran ministers Friedrich Johann Carl Lochner and Philipp Fleischmann established a private "teachers' seminary" in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to train day school teachers for Lutheran schools. In 1857, responsibility for the operation of the school was taken over by the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. The Synod moved the school to Fort Wayne, Indiana, uniting it with a theological seminary that had been founded there by followers of Johann Konrad Wilhelm Löhe. In 1861, the theological seminary was moved to St. Louis (and later to Springfield, Illinois and then back to Fort Wayne), and in 1864, the teachers' seminary was moved to Addison, Illinois.
