This email came from the Baptist History and Heritage Society-
Dear Society Members:
Charles Deweese informed me yesterday that Alta May of Nashville, TN, died on Feb. 13. She was the wife of Dr. Lynn May, longtime executive director of the SBC Historical Commission prior to his death in 1996. Many will remember that the Baptist History & Heritage Society assumed the work of the Historical Commission after the Commission’s demise in the 1990s. Mrs. May remained supportive of the Baptist History & Heritage Society after Dr. May’s death and became one of the Society’s major donors over the past fifteen years. We are grateful for her generosity and support through the years. We extend our condolences to the May family in their time of grief.
President, Baptist History & Heritage Society
