Biographical / Historical:
Walter Herbert Voigt was a brewer and collector of beer related materials. Voigt began in the beer brewing business soon after the 21st Amendment repealed Prohibition. He was born in 1906 in Vermillion, South Dakota of German immigrant parents, Fritz and Minna Voigt. He attended the Siebel Institute of Biotechnology, the oldest beer brewing school in the United States. During the 1930s, he spent two years training in brewing at the Largay Brewing Company in Waterbury, Connecticut. Voigt moved to the Amsterdam Brewing Company in Amsterdam, New York, and then moved to the American Brewing Company in Baltimore, Maryland about 1941 as assistant brew master. During his life, he was a member of the Master Brewers Association (MBA) and held the position of Secretary of the District of Baltimore for the Master Brewers Association (MBA). Voigt later retired from the American Brewing Company and died at the age of seventy-seven in 1983 in Salisbury, Connecticut.

1931-1967
Scope and Contents:
Consists primarily of Voigt's class notes and notebooks relating to brewing beer. In addition, there is some outgoing and incoming correspondence which reveals Voigt's interest in preserving the history of beer brewing in America before brewmasters were as he stated "replaced by chemical engineers and highly trained chemists in modern laboratories." Membership cards and a convention badge from the Master Brewers Association of America (MBAA) can also be found among these materials. Voigt wrote a paper on the history of brewing in Maryland and the vicinicty in 1949 which was probably presented at one of the conventions or possibly as a piece for the newlsetters. A list of the materials that Voigt intended to donate to the Smithsonian Institution.
