SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH

GENERAL CONFERENCE BULLETINS

REFERENCES TO WILLIAM S. and LENA SADLER

Note: References in GCBQ are fairly complete, although not exhaustive. I did not include several lists of workers. I also did not attempt an exhaustive search of all Committee meetings but include several to show nature of Sadler's status among hierarchy of SDA.

GCBQ = General Conference Quarterly Bulletin
GCBD = General Conference Daily Bulletin
GCCM = General Conference Committee Meeting
PUC = Pacific Union Conference
