N. C. McClure
President of the California Conference (1890-1891, 1894-1896)

Nathaniel C. McClure, a native of Indiana, accepted the message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church as an adult. He was twice elected as president of the California Conference, serving from 1890-1891 and again from 1894-1896.

During his second presidency, the Placerville church was dedicated debt free in February, 1896. The church records state that Elder McClure preached the dedicatory sermon on “The Rise and Progress of Seventh-day Adventists.”

In retirement McClure lived in Los Angeles. His wife preceded him in death by about ten years. He died Dec. 8, 1919, at the age of 82 and was laid to rest next to his wife in the St. Helena, Calif., cemetery.
