Biographical history

Henry Endress (1914-1981) was the Vice-President of Waterloo Lutheran University (now Wilfrid Laurier University) from 1963-1969, also serving as acting President from 1966-1969. Previously, Endress served as a member of the Executive Council of the Lutheran Church in America, and was the Associate Director of the Lutheran Laymen’s Movement from 1946-1949.

Endress was born in Rosebank, Staten Island in 1914. He served as a Director of the Commission on Stewardship, a Director of Lutheran Film Associates, and was an Associate Producer for the motion picture Martin Luther (1953). As Vice-President of Waterloo Lutheran, Endress was responsible for University Resources, which included fundraising and public relations. While at Waterloo Lutheran, Endress was also a Member of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Religious Advisory Council.

Following his tenure at Waterloo Lutheran, Endress was named the Executive Director of the Lutheran Resources Commission in Washington, D.C, serving until his retirement in 1980. He then moved to California and joined the Vesper Society, a national consulting agency involved in health care, social welfare and religious education.
