These are recordings into a tape recorder of humor by Reverend Clarence Rahn from a Tape entitled "Rose Hill Talk." This was probably in preparation for a speech at a Pennsylvania German Society event. It might be associated with a publication, edited by Homer Tope Rosenberger, Intimate Glimpses of the Pennsylvania Germans in which Rahn has a chapter, "Pennsylvania German Humor", pages 43-54.
We are grateful to Ruth Schaefer, the daughter of Clarence Rahn, for sharing this tape and making it accessible to the public.
