Be it money, wanderlust, love, or politics — whatever the combination of causes that drew Dvorák to American shores — one of the most significant cultural exchanges in American history was about to begin when Dvorák, his wife, Anna, and their two oldest children, boarded the SS Saale in Bremen on September 17, 1892. After nine stormy days, they debarked onto a pier in Hoboken, New Jersey.
