Thomas Elliott Huntley
Birth: Jun. 25, 1903
Death: Sep. 27, 1983

A graduate of Morehouse College & Virginia Union Theological Seminary, Huntley became pastor of Central Baptist Church in St. Louis, Missouri in 1942. He was responsible for "The Church on Wheels" program, which was designed to curtail juvenile delinquency & received international acclaim by religious leaders all over the world. Pastor Huntley led the first national Negro Ministers Prayer march on Washington, D.C. in 1948, which sparked the proclamation for the first Civil Rights Bill by President Truman. He received a Certificate of Merit Award from the Dictionary of International Biography for his outstanding contribution to the Baptist Church. His church hosted Dr. Martin Luther King's first sermon in St. Louis in 1961. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
