Richard Henry

Richard Henry A native New Englander, Richard Henry has received degrees from Harvard University, Union Theological Seminary, and Meadville/Lombard Theological School. He served churches in Brooklyn, New York (where he was assistant to John Howland Lathrop); Knoxville, Tennessee; Denver, Colorado (a pastorate lasting twenty years); and Salt Lake City, Utah, retiring from there as minister emeritus in 1986. He was a member of the first Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Association (1961-64); served on the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association (UUMA) Executive Committee; and served several terms on the Board of Directors of the Unitarian Service Committee. He also was a board member of the Colorado and Utah Planned Parenthood affiliates and of the Colorado A.C.L.U.

Richard Henry is married to a former math professor, Patricia. He has two sons, Evan (in Bangor, Maine) and Seth (in Denver, Colorado), with his first wife, Helen.

Henry's interest in Czechoslovakia began with his first visit there in 1948. Between 1989 and 1996 he returned to Prague six times to work in the Capek archive at the Unitarian church headquarters. His biography of Norbert Fabian Capek, published in 1999 by Skinner House Press, is the first full-length biography of that modern martyr.
