Barbara Huggins of Glendale, Mo., has been appointed by the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League as its new archivist-historian. She succeeds Peggi Lawrence of Eureka, Calif., who retired after serving in the post since 1993.
Huggins has served for many years at the St. Louis-based Concordia Historical Institute (CHI), where the LWML’s official archives are housed.
As the wife of CHI Interim Director Rev. Marvin Huggins, “appreciation for preserving church history and artifacts just naturally became a part of my life as we worked together over the years on preservation projects,” Barbara Huggins said.
