Aurelia Henry Reinhardt (1932)

Aurelia Henry Reinhardt

Aurelia Henry Reinhardt

An expectant audience was not disappointed when Frederick May Eliot, the president of the American Unitarian Association, introduced the first woman moderator to them. Speaking to the assembled delegates at the 1940 May Meeting, he called Aurelia Henry Reinhardt “as distinguished a Unitarian as there is in the land.” Aurelia Reinhardt proved herself to be a distinguished leader of the Unitarian movement, not only through her two-year term as moderator during the bleak years of war in Europe but throughout her life. She was a scholar, an educator, and advocate for women, and a committed bibliophile.
