Jim Bill McInteer: A Legacy
Brackett Library is pleased to announce the publication of an online exhibit that honors the legacy of Brother Jim Bill McInteer. A 1942 graduate of Harding College, he preached from the time he was 18 years old until his death at the age of 88 in 2010. Famous for never repeating a sermon during his 30 years at the West End church in Nashville, Tenn., Brother McInteer kept meticulous records of his sermon outlines and notes. Following his death, Brother McInteer's family donated this priceless collection to Harding University. The staff of Brackett Library continues to work to digitize this material making it available to a much wider audience.
What is your fondest memory of Mr. McInteer? How did he inspire you? Was it a sermon at West End or a chapel speech? Was it seeing the way he tenderly cared for his wife as she journeyed through Alzheimer's? Please share your memories in a comment here and we will add them to the Recollections section of the online exhibit.
