Article excerpt

The Rev. Dr. Robert Prichard, President of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC), convened the annual membership meeting Monday evening 10 July 2013 at the St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. HSEC Secretary, Dr. J. Michael Utzinger, reported 721 subscriptions to Anglican and Episcopal History (AEH) and 110 proxy votes received for the meeting.

On behalf of the Nominations Committee, Secretary Utzinger presented the following slate of officers to serve for the next year: the Rev. Dr. Robert W. Prichard (President), the Rev. Dr. Marilyn McCord Adams (Vice President), Dr. J. Michael Utzinger (Secretary), and Mr. George DeFilippi (Treasurer). Three new members were nominated to the Historical Society's Board of Directors: Dr. David Contosta, Professor of History at Chestnut Hill College, Philadelphia; Ms. Nancy Hurn, Archivist of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada; and the Very Rev. Dr. Sylvia A. Sweeney, the Dean and President of Bloy House, the Episcopal Theological School at Claremont. The members unanimously elected both the slate of officers and the nominated board members by acclamation.

Dr. Edward Bond next announced Zola M. Packman and John N. Wall as the recipients of the Nelson R. Burr Prize for their article "Worship at Trinity Chapel, Lincoln Inn, London, 22 May 1623," which appeared in the June 2012 issue of AEH.

The Rev. Will Wauters delivered the keynote address to the Society, entitled "The Borderland Cultures Encounter the Church and a Church Gave Birth to a New Chicano Culture," in which talk he described how the Church of the Epiphany in East Los Angeles, the oldest standing Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, opened its doors in a new way to the revolutionary times of the 1960s in the barrio and how both the church and Los Angeles culture and history were transformed by one another.
