Harry Washburn

(1872-1952). Educator. After his graduation from Union College (1896) he did secretarial work at the Boulder-Colorado Sanitarium for two years. After teaching church school at Owasso, Michigan, for one year, he served as principal of Fox River Academy for one year and of Bethel Academy for three years. In 1904 he was appointed president of Emmanuel Missionary College, but ill health prevented his serving. The next year he taught Bible at the Southern Training School in Graysville, Tennessee. Then he taught Bible and history for four years at Walla Walla College. Later he was head of the History Department at Pacific Union College (1910-1924). As his health permitted, he assisted in the compilation of the original Index to the Writings of Ellen G. White.
