American Turner Topics
The American Turner Topics, published since 1936, is the newsletter of the American Turners. The Turner movement, begun in Germany in 1811, stresses physical fitness and German culture. German immigrants brought the movement to the United States in the 1840s and in 1850 established a national Turner association that is today known as the American Turners. The newsletter contains reports on the activities of the national organization and of individual Turner societies, obituaries of Turner members, and articles about Turner history and philosophy.
