There is information on the Willius family in Bremen, Germany; Ferdinand's emigration (1853) and his activities in the East before settling (1855) in St. Paul (Minn.); and Gustav's emigration to St. Paul (1856). Subsequent papers give data on the brothers' activities in a succession of St. Paul banks: Meyer & Willius (established in 1855), F. & G. Willius (1859), Willius Brothers and [Louis L.] Dunbar (1862), the German American Bank (1873), the National German American Bank (1883), the Germania Bank (1893), and the State Savings Bank of St. Paul (1891).
Among other subjects covered are St. Paul business, commercial, and cultural organizations; the brothers' other business enterprises and real estate investments; the Republican party; and Christopher C. Andrews' comments on Brazil while he was in that country (1882). There is extensive information on the Willius and related families of Holterhoff, Horton, Hutz, Pfeiffer, Popple, and Waldthausen, particularly in a genealogy written (1949) by Gustav's son Frederick.
