International Program Alumni | Heidelberg History
|The Haus at Graimbergweg 10 was built by Prof. Endermann
|After World War I it was home to the Schmitthelm family
|During World War II, the Haus was inhabited by families from nearby Mannheim who were displaced by the war.
|After World War II, the Haus became the property of the United States Army. It was used by the CIC (a precursor to the CIA) for interrogations and to monitor Communist party activities.
|Heidelberg, Germany was established as the first international "Year-In-Europe" program
site at Pepperdine.
-Students participating in the first two years of the program lived in hotels and pensions in the Alt Stadt (Old Town) of Heidelberg and attended classes at the Amerika Haus.
|Pepperdine purchased a permanent site for the program under the leadership of J.C. Moore Jr.
|In the fall the site was named Moore Haus after Mr. Moore, and the program moved into its present day location.
|The "tower annex" was added to the house, allowing room for 6 additional students
|In September Freunde von Heidelberg was established
-Freunde was set up to provide services to alumni and organize reunions in Germany, to provide historic restoration to the Moore Haus, and to support and encourage the current Pepperdine students spending the semesters in Germany.
|In May, the 100 Year Anniversary Celebration at Moore Haus took place inviting past residents, faculty and friends back for the festivities
