East Tennessee Elders 1915
Years ago, missions did not have "zones", the had "conferences". Tennessee was its own conference at first, but by the 1880's split into two Conferences: East Tennessee and West Tennessee. West Tennessee went through several iterations, being split, renamed and merged several times over the years. But East Tennessee remained unchanged.Even today, there is a Knoxville Tennessee Mission with roughly the same boundaries as the old East Tennessee Conference. That mission today probably has over 150 missionaries, though that is just a guess. In 1915, however, there were only seven missionaries.
