Paul Nathaniel Carnes, 1977-1979

Born in 1921 in Indiana, Carnes was a supporter of desegregation and civil liberties. During his short presidency he worked to establish affirmative action for women and minorities in ministry. He reinstated the Department of Social Responsibility at the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) to work on issues of racial equality. Carnes died of lymphoma in 1979.
