Smith Remains a Model for Mennonites, Biographer States | www.blufftonnews.com

In the first half of the 20th century, Dr. C. Henry Smith wrote three books that were "the vehicles by which generations of Mennonites learned their history," says Dr. Perry Bush, a Bluffton University professor of history.
Now, nearly 75 years after the last of Smith's histories of the Mennonites was published, Bush has written a biography subtitled "The Mennonite History of C. Henry Smith" - a man who spoke to his, and our, times, Bush notes, while modeling the emerging role of Mennonite public intellectual. "Peace, Progress and the Professor," published recently by Herald Press, tells the story of a self-described "all-around Mennonite" who was raised Amish before becoming one of the first Mennonites to earn a doctorate, early in his 50-year teaching tenure in higher education. After beginning his career at Goshen College, the Metamora, Ill., native spent the last 35 of those years at Bluffton. There, he also became a banker and a prolific public speaker who was a voice for Mennonite unity - and principles - while demonstrating a different way of being a Mennonite in the world, his biographer says. Smith felt the Mennonites had "a tremendous tradition," says Bush, the current successor to Smith's legacy in the Bluffton history department. Smith lived much of his adult life during "contentious times in the church," Bush says. With the church divided again, "he could have written that speech yesterday," says Bush, who calls Smith an important figure who has been neglected, including by him, despite their having lived and worked in the same place.
