For the most part, the
Caldwell newspapers ignored the Catholic settlement at Fulda. As
one current local historian put it, "The folks in Caldwell would
just as soon have had a colony of lepers up there on the hill as a colony of
Catholics." Nevertheless, notes about Fulda appeared in the
paper from time to time. Until his untimely death on 21 Feb 1883,
Father Damien Kluber, pastor of St. Mary's, was the author of the Fulda
articles. It is not known who continued the tradition after his
are links to excerpts of some of the articles that appeared in the Caldwell Citizens'
Press, broken down by year.
