Elder Harold J. Sheldon was born March 8, 1880, in Alexandria, Minnesota, and passed away in Azusa, California, March 29, 1966. His educational career began in teaching public school, and serving two terms as principal of Maplewood Academy, and a term in the same position at Plainview Academy. Elder Sheldon and Alice Riechel joined hands in marriage in 1917. For a period of ten years this beloved worker served as Educational and MV Secretary in the Northern Union Conference, and similar responsibilities for five years in the Lake Union Conference. The last ten years of active work were spent in pastoral duties in California. There remain his faithful companion, Alice, and daughter, Mrs. Dorothy Froeschle, and three grandchildren, in addition to other close relatives and friends. He rests awaiting the consummation of the promises of Rev. 14:13.
