Professor of American Church History Emeritus C. Conrad Wright, a renowned scholar of American Unitarianism who received his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate at Harvard and taught at the Divinity School from 1954 to 1982, will be honored at a reception this week at the Andover-Harvard Theological Library. The occasion for the reception is to celebrate the new C. Conrad Wright Room.

Wright, who has written extensively on the history of Harvard and the Divinity School, was also president of the Unitarian Historical Society in the 1960s. His book “The Beginnings of Unitarianism in America” (1955) received the Carnegie Award of the American Historical Association.

The public is invited to the reception, which takes place on Monday (Oct. 21) at 4:30 p.m. in the Stendahl Lobby on the second floor of the newly renovated Andover-Harvard Theological Library.
