Bishop Barbara Harris

Bishop Barbara Clementine Harris was born on June 12, 1930 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Harris grew up in Germantown, a neighborhood of Philadelphia. Her mother, Beatrice Price Harris, played the organ for St. Baranabas Church and her father, Walter Harris, was a steel worker. While attending Philadelphia High School for Girls, where she excelled in music, Harris wrote a weekly column called High School Notes by Bobbi for the Philadelphia edition of the Pittsburgh Courier, an African American newspaper. After graduating from high school in 1948, she attended the Charles Morris Price School of Advertising and Journalism. She earned a certificate from Charles Morris Price in 1950. In later years, Harris would study at Villanova University and the Episcopal Divinity School.

As a member of the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity (ESCRU) since the late 1950s, Harris served on a number of diocesan committees. In the 1960s, she helped to form the Union of Black Clergy and Laity which was subsequently called the Union of Black Episcopalians (UBE). She was a member of the St. Dismas Fellowship and served on the board of the Pennsylvania Prison Society. During the summer of 1964, Harris volunteered with Delta Ministries in Greenville, Mississippi, educating and registering voters. In 1974, she advocated for the ordination of the “Philadelphia Eleven,” a group of women who had been ordained priests, but were labeled "irregular" by the Anglican Communion. By 1976, the church began to admit women priests and, in October 1980, Harris was ordained as a priest. After her ordination, she served as priest at St. Augustine of Hippo Church and as chaplain of Philadelphia County Prison.

In 1984, Harris was appointed executive director of the Episcopal Church Publishing Company, molding the social direction of the Episcopal Church. Known for her strong advocacy for social justice, Harris was elected in 1988 as the consecrated Suffragan Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, becoming the first female bishop in the Anglican Communion. She served as bishop until 2002 when she retired at the age of seventy-two. Harris is the recipient of numerous honors including an honorary degree from Yale University's Divinity School and the 2007 Wisdom Award from the National Visionary Leadership Project. After suffering a stroke in 2010, Harris made a full recovery and still advocates for social change.

Bishop Barbara Harris was interviewed by The HistoryMakers on February 12, 2007.

Harris passed away on March 13, 2020.

Bishop Barbara Harris remembers her calling to the ministry
Bishop Barbara Harris recalls African American bishops who preceded her
Transcript
We hear people often say they were called to ministry, but in your case, what happened to you?$$Well, I was exercising a very active lay ministry at the time. I was part of this St. Dismas Fellowship that went into the county prisons primarily, and I, I spent virtually every Sunday afternoon in the county jail because most of the inmate population was black. And all the volunteers were white. And so I thought that there needed to be a black volunteer that maybe people could relate to. And so I started going to the women's wing of the House of Correction for Philadelphia County [Pennsylvania], and occasionally, I would go to the group that met together in Holmesburg Prison [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania], which was another county facility for men. And I, I did that for several years and had been doing that for several years. And there was something tugging at me saying that there was a wider dimension to ministry that I was feeling pulled towards. And I spent a lot of time talking to my parish rector about it, and about my strengths and weaknesses and trying to discern this call. And finally, we had a marathon conversation in my den one night that started about seven o'clock in the evening and went 'til about two in the morning when we stood and prayed together. And he said, "When shall we go to the bishop?" And I said, "I see no further reason to delay." And in the morning, later in the morning, he called the bishop and said, "I have someone whom I think you need to consider as a candidate."$$Now, who is this that you had the marathon--$$The Reverend Paul Washington who was my rector [at the George W. South Memorial Church of the Advocate, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania] (simultaneous).$$(Simultaneous) Okay.$Now, just to set the stage for this, were there any black bishops at that point?$$Yes, there were several. Some were retired, but in the months prior to the Massachusetts election, in October of '88 [1988], Frank Turner had been consecrated as suffragan bishop in Philadelphia [Pennsylvania]. I guess a year prior to that, Orris Walker [Orris G. Walker, Jr.] had been consecrated in Long Island [New York], and was the diocesan bishop in Long Island. Herbert Thompson [Herbert Thompson, Jr.] had been elected in southern Ohio, and, in fact, his consecration was the day that I was elected. So there--and there were some active black bishops--oh, Walter Decoster Dennis in New York [New York], the suffragan in New York.$$Was Primo [Quintin E. Primo, Jr.], was he one of the first--$$Bishop Primo had died by that time, I think (simultaneous).$$(Simultaneous) Okay, all right.$$I think Bishop Primo had died by that time. I'm a little hazy, but there was Bishop Hucles [Henry Boyd Hucles, III] in Long Island, Bishop Martin [Richard Beamon Martin] was retired. [HistoryMaker] Bishop John Burgess who had been the bishop of Massachusetts, Bishop John Walker [John T. Walker] of Washington, D.C., the diocesan in Washington, D.C., who was one of my co-consecrators, Bishop Clarence Coleridge [Clarence Nicholas Coleridge] who was the suffragan in Connecticut and ultimately, became their diocesan bishop. So there were a number of active black bishops.$$Okay. But there were no women at this point, right?$$None at all, no.$$None at all, whatsoever. Okay.$$No women at all.

Welton Ivan Taylor

World-renowned scientist and educator Welton I. Taylor was born in Birmingham, Alabama, on November 12, 1919. His family moved to Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood shortly thereafter where Taylor attended DuSable High School, graduating as Class Valedictorian in 1937. Impressed by Taylor’s performance at DuSable, local African American businessmen from the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity sponsored his undergraduate education in bacteriology at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana for all four years. Taylor graduated in 1941 with a B.S. in Bacteriology and a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Field Artillery. He deployed to the South Pacific as a Liaison Pilot in the 93rd Infantry Division, the first all-African American division to enter combat in World War II. At war’s end, Taylor returned to his alma mater to earn M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in bacteriology on the G.I. Bill.

In 1948, Taylor joined the faculty of the University of Illinois’ College of Medicine and immediately began research on the treatment of gas gangrene and tetanus—two infections plaguing victims of World War II. His discovery that both infections could be controlled by antibiotics found in any local pharmacy was lauded by the Annals of Surgery and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and the New York State Department of Civil Defense incorporated his recommendations into their civil defense plans for the state.

In 1954, the Chicago meatpacking firm Swift & Company recruited Taylor to tackle an outbreak of salmonella poisoning in baby food. Taylor not only solved the problem, he standardized his successful approach and disseminated his methodology to microbiology labs worldwide. Taylor became Microbiologist-in-Chief at Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital in 1959 and in 1961, he was granted a Special Research Fellowship by the National Institutes of Health (NIH-NAIAD) to help British and French scientists eradicate salmonella poisoning in their countries’ imported meats. He returned to Children’s Memorial in 1962 and soon developed new methods of bacterial detection that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and similar agencies around the world rely on today to declare foods salmonella-free. In 1985, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta recognized Taylor for this work, naming a new bacterium, Enterobacter taylorae, in honor of Taylor and a British colleague. Welton Taylor is the first African American to be so honored.

During his 50-year long career, Taylor patented four products, published 40 articles in scientific journals (and became the first African American on the editorial boards of three of them), taught microbiology both at the University of Illinois and at Northwestern University Medical School and helped eleven Chicago-area hospitals, seven corporations, three government agencies, and the CDC address Legionnaire’s disease, toxic shock syndrome, sexually transmitted diseases, and AIDS. Taylor actively mentored younger microbiologists and lived to see his ground-breaking research become a continual source of influence on scientists today.

A staunch civil rights activist and community leader, Taylor was one of the first African Americans to integrate Chicago’s Chatham neighborhood where he served as President of the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council, founded the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity, and received the Brotherhood Award of the National Conference of Christians and Jews for his efforts. He received alumni achievement awards from both the University of Illinois and DuSable High School and received the Congressional Gold Medal awarded to the Tuskegee Airmen in 2007. In May of 2016, Dr. Taylor will be inducted into the National Inventors’ Hall of Fame, joining the ranks of inventors Thomas Edison, Eli Whitney, George Washington Carver, Percy Julian, Orville Wright, Steve Jobs, and over 500 others whose inventions have “benefitted humanity.”

Taylor married Jayne Rowena Kemp in 1945 and enjoyed 59 years of marriage until Jayne’s death in 2005. The couple raised two daughters, Karyn and Shelley, a Trial Consultant and Educator, respectively.

In July 2012, Dr. Taylor published his World War II memoir, Two Steps from Glory. He passed away three months later on November 1, 2012, just eleven days shy of his 93rd birthday.
