Nymeyer, Frederick (1897-1981) | Heritage Hall, Hekman Library

Name: Nymeyer, Frederick (1897-1981)

Historical Note:

Frederick Nymeyer (12 November 1897, Hull, IA - February 1981, South Holland, IL) was an industrialist who founded the Libertarian Press that brought the economic writings of Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk to the United States. The Press's pamphlets argue against the social gospel, socialism, and communism.  Nymeyer also debated Common Grace with his denomination, the Christian Reformed Church in North America, accepting instead a position similar to that advocated by Herman Hoeksema and the Protestant Reformed Churches.

The second of four children born to Martin B. and Elizabeth (neé Kastijn, also Kastein) Nymeyer, Frederick married Cornelia Wesselina Haeck.  They had six children: Martin Benjamin (1923-1988), Maurice W. (1924-2011), Elizabeth (1927-1929), Philip G. (1930-2007), Eliot Kastein (1933-2013), and Cornelius W. (1936- ).
