The Alexanderkrone Business School in the village of that name in the Molotschna settlement, South Russia, was founded by a school union (Schulverein) as a Zentralschule in 1906. In spite of great difficulties with the government, the school opened with three teachers and 69 students; an increasing student body soon required the engagement of another teacher. A large beautiful building housed the school. In 1916 it was converted into a business college in order to secure more rights. But it did not exist long as such. Soon after the outbreak of the Revolution it passed into communist control and was reorganized to fit their pattern. A series of able teachers served the school, among them Isaak P. Regehr, D. P. Enns, G. H. Peters, and Heinrich D. Neufeld.
