Rodenberg is third honoree for 2023

Louis W. Rodenberg

The Randolph Society Foundation Board is pleased to announce that Louis W. Rodenberg, a talented innovator who was instrumental in transforming braille notation for visually-impaired musicians, will be inducted into the 2023 class of honorees.

Louis William Rodenberg was born near Evansville on May 11, 1891. He was the first child of Philip and Frederika Rodenberg, who both came from German families. He had two older siblings, Henry and Elizabeth, from his father’s first marriage, and the Rodenberg family quickly grew to include numerous additional brothers and sisters, all of whom were raised on farm land in rural Randolph County near Ellis Grove.
