Henry Holser

(1856-1901). One of the early church administrators in Europe. He was born in Michigan, and at the age of 18 joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church. In 1882 he entered evangelistic work, serving apprenticeship in Iowa under A. G. Daniells. After three years he was ordained to the ministry and the next year served as secretary-treasurer of the Minnesota Conference. In 1887 he went to Europe (Switzerland), where a year later he became president of the Central European Conference (1888-1899) and was head of the European Mission from 1895 to 1899. During the late 1890s he became ill and spent the winter of 1899 in Egypt, both to improve his health and to establish SDA work in that country. When his health failed to improve, he returned to the United States and died shortly after.
