Notes: Kainbacher; Hermann Theodor Wangemann was born on 27.03.1818 at Wilsnack in Germany. He studied theology under Johann August Wilhelm Neander in Berlin from 1836 to 1840. After holding various posts, he succeeded Johann Christian Wallmann as Director of the Berlin Mission Society. He was appointed to this position in 1865, and held it until his death. During his term of office, he conducted two inspection tours of the Berlin Mission Society's station in South Africa, the first from 1866 to 1868, and the second from 1884 to 1885. He was responsible for the introduction of the so-called "Wangemannsche Missionsordung" in 1866.
