I have corresponded with Dr. Folkerts for almost 10 years about Gauss and his family here in the United States. In September, 2007, I had the pleasure of meeting him on his research trip here to the United States with Dr. Andreas K├╝hne, and escorting them around to various sites, including the locations of homes of Eugene and Charles William Gauss, and Oak Grove Cemetery of St. Charles and Bellefontaine Cemetery of St. Louis. Dr. Folkerts took the pictures of the stones on this site, as I dropped my camera before I got a chance to take even one. He was immensely kind and interested in everything, and I greatly enjoyed the experience.

For a nice synopsis of Dr. Folkerts' professional work, see the Laudatio 2008, written by his colleagues in honor of his 65th birthday.
