Educator, clergyman, and builder.

Dr. Logan Berge Abernethy began his work for Methodism in the 1880's by teaching mathematics and logic to student preachers. His work as an educator included a three year term as President of Weaver College from 1905-1908.

He served the Western North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Church in nearly every possible capacity. He was a pioneer teacher and circuit rider who preached in every community of the western half of North Carolina even the most remote mountain coves. He was pastor of Dilworth Methodist Church in Charlotte, NC during the First World War. While Pastor at Dilworth he was also a member of a number of social agencies such as the Family Service Association and the Charlotte Council of Parents and Teachers. He was director of the Golden Cross and later Missionary Secretary for the Western North Carolina Conference in addition to being representative for the Charlotte City Mission Society. He also worked effectively through many years in the improvement of parsonages and the salaries of ministers in the Western North Carolina Conference.

Prominent among the buildings in which he had a leading role are the administration building of the college (now Western North Carolina University) at Cullowhee, Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital Elkin, NC which he served as superintendent of, and the Methodist Home in Charlotte.
