  1. In 1937 I attended a South Shore Baptist Church with my parents. I think it might have been a Swedish Baptist Church. The pastor was Clarence Wallin. I remember that we took Stoney Island Ave. part of the way to get to the church from 103rd and State Street.

    • Hi Howard,

      My time at SSBC was for much of the decade from 1955. The congregation had many people of Swedish origin, although I never heard Swedish spoken.

    • Hello Howard and John,
      I attended SSBC from the mid 50s to mid 60s (from about age 3 until about age 13). There was definitely a Swedish population in attendance, and I can remember one name in particular — Stollhammer. Howard, your family probably took Stony Island to 79th Street, then East to Coles, a couple of blocks from the lake. My father, Bill Rackham, drew as a hobby, and he was the artist who sketched the church for various church publications, such as the weekly bulletin. Donald Anderson is the pastor I remember from that time period. John, it seems we attended the Sunday school/church at the same time. Paula Rackham Kruger
