Emanuel Suter (1833-1902) was born on a Rockingham County farm in the Shenandoah Valley and engaged in farming from an early age. His interest in turning pots soon became a side economic interest and then blossomed into a full-time pursuit when he moved to Harrisonburg and began operating a thriving industrial company producing functional pottery for the market. This book was written by Mr. Suter’s great-great-grandson who is an English professor in Rockingham County at Bridgewater College, a denominational college of the Mennonite faith that Emanuel Suter followed and advanced.
