Mrs. Louise Short, widow of Bishop Roy Short, visited General Conference on Tuesday, May 1, 2012. Mrs. Short, who is 106 years old, has attended every General Conference since the 1939 Uniting Conference. The 1939 conference united the Methodist Episcopal Church (the northern section) and Methodist Episcopal Church, South into The Methodist Church. Mrs. Short said that the 1939 conference was a very contentious conference with a lot of division over the use of tobacco.
