Luther Warren

(1864-1940). Evangelist, youth leader. At the age of 14, in 1879, he with his friend, Harry Fenner, organized at Hazelton, Michigan, one of the first Seventh-day Adventist young people’s societies. His formal education was limited—one year at Battle Creek College—but he was an insatiable reader, keenly interested in the development of church schools. With his appointment in 1888 as a tentmaster in Michigan began an evangelistic career that took him to many centers throughout North America. He powerfully influenced the lives of thousands of young people in schools and churches where he conducted revivals. Mary Boucher has written a biography on Warren under the title Luther Warren (Review and Herald, 1959).
