The Messenger served as the Lutheran Children's Home of the South's newsletter. A yearly subscription cost only 25 cents. Once subscribed, the newsletter kept one abreast of the Home's pressing needs as well as the health, achievements, and activities of the children. Find out more about the Lutheran Children's Home of the South at their Facebook page . See also a slideshow from John Sinclair and John Wingold. Find libraries with holdings of The Messenger here.  

More often than not, children would grace the cover of the newsletter as the writers boasted of their accomplishments. From homecoming queens to boys serving in the war, the Children's Home took pride in the youth they raised. Click the issues to read more.
