DANIELS, JONATHAN MYRICK (20 March 1939, Keene, N.H.–20 August 1965, Hayneville, Ala.). Education: B.S., Virginia Military Institute, 1961; graduate student, Harvard University, 1961–62; seminarian, Episcopal Theological School, 1963–65. Career: Office assistant and hospital orderly, Keene, N.H., 1962–63; civil rights worker in Alabama, 1965.

He spent the next few months working at home in Keene but returned to Cambridge in the fall of 1963 as a seminarian at the Episcopal Theological School (ETS).

King’s appeal persuaded Daniels and several other ETS students to join the civil rights movement in Alabama. After they arrived in Selma, the ETS students participated with several thousand other volunteers in the march from Selma to Montgomery, the state capital. After the march, Daniels and his fellow seminarian Judith Upham decided to remain in Alabama and participate in efforts to desegregate worship at St. Paul’s Church, the all-white Episcopal parish in Selma.
