Background
Carl French Henry, 1867-1929, was born in Ohio. He grew up on a farm going to school first at a local district school, later to a near-by town high school. He attended Buchtel College, a Universalist institution, graduating in 1891. He earned the money to attend college by teaching high school, and running a boarding club furnishing meals to students. He attended Tufts College divinity school graduating in 1894. Tufts later granted him the honorary degree, Doctor of Divinity in 1924. He served the Universalist Church in Cleveland until 1905. It was there he married Rena M. Lathrop and their only child Helen was born. Feeling the need for training in Sunday School work, he then attended the Hartford School of Religious Pedagogy, receiving his degree in 1905.
