Hide Profile

Warren Akin Candler, Methodist clergyman and educator of Atlanta, Georgia, was born 23 August 1857, near Villa Rica in Carroll County, Georgia and died at his home in Atlanta on 25 September 1941. Candler graduated from Emory College (A.B., 1875; A.M., 1878); served various circuits in the North Georgia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South (1875-1886); married Sarah Antoinette (Nettie) Curtright (1877); was appointed editor of the CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE (1886); was elected President of Emory College (1888); and was elected a Methodist bishop (1898). He was interested in Methodist missions in Mexico, China, Japan, Korea, and Cuba; opposed weakening Methodist control over Vanderbilt University (1898-1910); helped establish Paine Institute (now Paine College, Augusta, Georgia) as a school for blacks; was instrumental in the founding of Mount Vernon Place Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in Washington, D.C.; led the move to found Emory University in Atlanta (1915) and to make Southern Methodist University an institution of the Methodist Church as a whole rather than a church conference school; supported prohibition; and opposed lynching, women's suffrage, and the reunification of the Methodist Church. Candler wrote many short articles for both religious and secular publications, and published biographies of Thomas Coke (1923), Charles Betts Galloway (1927), and Young John Allen (1931).
