Reverend P. G. Richard Pfeiffer (1885-1967) was born in Forst, Germany and emigrated to the United States in 1911 to complete his studies at Wittenberg Seminary in Springfield, Ohio. He was ordained on June 18, 1913 in Chicago, Illinois. Reverend Pfeiffer served multiple parishes, in both Canada and the United States, during his career. He retired on Dec. 31, 1953, and died in Kingston, Ontario on September 3, 1967. He was interned at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Denbigh, Ontario.

Norman Albert Antler (1920-2010) was a collector of Canadian Lutheran church history. Antler was a lifelong member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Pembroke, Ontario, where he served as a board member, church historian, and program chairman for Zion’s 1983 centennial celebration. During this time he became interested in church history, particularly the Lutheran Church in America congregations. Antler began collecting the histories of the Upper Ottawa Valley presenting his research at Synod conventions, church celebrations, and events. After taking a trip to Canada’s western provinces Antler expanded the scope of his interest, and began collecting the histories churches across Canada.
