Read about A. Margaret Barr (Annie Barr) on the website of the Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council.
A brief biography of Rev. Barr on the website of Britain's Unitarian Women's League reads, in part:
In 1932, hearing that a minister was needed to serve the little group of Unitarian churches in the Khasi Hills of Assam in north-east India, she wrote to the Committee responsible for making the appointment: "Here I am: send me." However the committee refused to send a woman to such a lonely post. So Margaret got herself a teaching job in Calcutta and began to pay unofficial visits to the Khasi Hills. Eventually, through sheer determination, she won: in 1936 she was given official charge of the churches there.
Unitarian Universalist Catie Scudera maintains a website about the recently created Margaret Barr Children's Village in India's Khasi Hills.
The Unitarian Inter-Faith Fellowship of India published Y. Surrendra Paul's biography, Margaret Barr: A Universal Soul, in 1978.
