Timothy Fortner Travis was first introduced to Unitarian Universalism when a fellow officer who was from Philadelphia invited him to attend a Sunday service in Biloxi, Mississippi. The year was 1967 and they were stationed at Keesler Air Force Base for electronics school. The Unitarian meeting was held in a converted house up on stilts back in a cleared wood swampy area. The guest speaker that morning was a young man who was a recent graduate of rabbinical school. Timothy was hooked and has been active, on and off, in UU since.
While Travis was a member of the Fredericksburg Virginia UU fellowship he founded the UU Infidels. It was thru the UU Infidels that he met Marilyn Westfall, Mel Lipman, and James Haught. They had booths and did UU Infidel workshops at a couple of UU General Assembles until the UUA made it too expensive. And it was thru Marilyn that he met Michael Jones.
Travis was on the board for WASH, the Washington Area Secular Humanists, until he moved to Fayetteville, NC where he is now active in CNCAH, the Central North Carolina Atheists and Humanists.
