Emil Fuchs (1874-1971) was the first Lutheran pastor to join the Social Democratic Party in Germany after World War I. He was a pacifist and became a member of the Society of Friends in 1925. Six years later he was appointed a Professor of Religious Science at Kiel, but was dismissed and briefly imprisoned by the Nazis. He taught for a year at Pendle Hill in Wallingford, Pa., after the War, and in 1949 was appointed Professor of Theology at the University of Leipzig.
