About Helen Barrett Montgomery
Helen Barrett Montgomery (1861–1934) was a social reformer, a Baptist leader, and a prominent intellectual in the American women’s ecumenical missionary movement. In 1893 she founded a chapter of the Women’s Educational and Industrial Union. A graduate of Wellesley College, she gained distinction as the first woman ever elected to the school board in the city of Rochester, New York (1899), and the first woman ever elected to the presidency of the Northern Baptist Convention (1921). Montgomery was also the first woman to publish and translate the New Testament from its original Greek. The Bible and Missions is one of six books she wrote for the Central Committee on the United States of Foreign Missions.
