As a Baptist minister, Dr. Southerland and his wife served in five states as well as France and Belgium. He retired as Executive Director of the Florida Baptist Association headquartered in Tallahassee, FL, in 2012. Dr. Southerland's connection to the Wiregrass Archives is through Dr. Priscilla McArthur, former History Dept. Chair at TSUD.
