Newspaper editor. Daenzer was an editor of the Westliche Post in St. Louis, Missouri. A memorial named "The Naked Truth" commemorating Carl Schurz, Dr. Emil Preetorius and Carl Daenzer was a gift to the city of St. Louis from the German-American Alliance and was unveiled on May 27, 1914. The statue is a nude figure of a woman seated on a stone bench with arms outstretched, holding torches. The figure symbolizes truth and the torches represent the enlightenment of Germany and the United States. The figure is bronze in heroic size and the eyes are painted to resemble Greek bronze figures and many modern German statues. The inscription on the back of the monument, written in both English and German, expresses the devotion of German-American citizens to their new country. (bio by: David H. Hagen)
