Eugene Howard Barth *65

Published in Oct. 25, 1995, issue

Eugene Howard Barth, professor emeritus of religion at Albright College (Reading, Penn.), historian, and retired minister in the Evangelical United Brethren denomination, died Oct. 26, 1994. He was 81.

He was born in Philadelphia and came to Albright for his undergraduate education, receiving his bachelor's with honors in 1937. He earned a bachelor's and a master's in sacred theology at Oberlin (1940 and 1941) and a master's and a doctorate at Princeton in religion. He also completed further graduate-level theological studies at Yale, Union Seminary (N.Y.C.), and United Theological Seminary in Ohio. His long and varied career in religion covered several simultaneous assignments in academe, the preaching ministry, a variety of denominational boards, and authorship of several books on Albright's history.

He is survived by wife Eleanor, three daughters, two sons, a brother, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. To all of them and to his host of friends and former students, we extend deep sympathy on the passing of this great teacher.
