More information

Embree was born in Nebraska, the youngest of four children of Laura and William Norris Embree. His grandfather and grandmother were John and Matilda Fee. Embree had a very close relationship with his grandfather, the founder and president of Berea College. His father was discharged from the Union Army, after he took a job as a telegrapher with the Union Pacific Railroad. His father died in 1891, so his mother took her four children and moved with her parents to Berea. Embree's grandfather formed Embree's values and character at an early age, so he followed his grandfather examples. Edwin went to school, became a lecturer, and had many other outstanding accomplishments[citation needed] throughout his life. He died in 1950.
