Biographical history

Norman Albert Antler (1920-2010) was a collector of Canadian Lutheran church history. Antler was a lifelong member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Pembroke, Ontario, where he served as a board member, church historian, and program chairman for Zion’s 1983 centennial celebration.

Antler was interested in church history, particularly the Lutheran Church in America congregations. He began collecting the histories of the Upper Ottawa Valley of the Eastern District, presenting his research at Synod conventions and church celebrations and events. After taking a trip to Canada’s western provinces, Antler expanded the scope of his interest, collecting the histories of the Central and Western Synods. He corresponded with hundreds of congregations, requesting that they provide him with history in any form, including: anniversary books, newspaper clippings, photographs of church property and buildings, photographs of pastors and special events. As an informal historian for the Lutheran church, Antler had no financial assistance, although some congregations and individuals sent him small donations. His stated aim was to preserve church history and assist others in doing the same
