In 2012 MHV released Kroeger Clocks, a coffee table book about the history of this prized clock which was manufactured by Mennonites and, in many cases, brought from Russia as a valued family possession. There are Kroeger clocks in our collection of artifacts and in the homes of many Mennonites in North America.

Mr. Arthur Kroeger, the author of this book, will be reading from it and appraising clocks at Kaufman Museum, located on the campus of Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, on Sunday, April 6. A brief story on this event is available on the Bethel College web site at

Kroeger Clocks is available in our Book Shop and at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg for $29.99. It has been on the “Best Seller” list at McNally Robinson.
