    Appendix D

    Women Licensed as Ministers, 1878—1975

    Editors’ note: Following is a partial list of women “licensed to preach” by the Seventh-day Adventist Church from 1878-1975. This list, compiled from the Seventh-day Adventist Yearbook, indicates the date each candidate first received ministerial license and the conference or other organization issuing the license. Beginning in 1915, listings were made only for every fifth year. Special thanks to Josephine Benton, who is writing a history of Adventist women ministers, for her aid in preparing this chart.EGWVRWSDA 18.1
