The King's Bible
For more than 20 years, one of Queens' most treasured archival possessions was used daily in the pulpit of Belk Chapel. It came from King George VI, the subject of "The King's Speech."
The beautiful leather bound Bible was sent to Queens in 1950 personally by King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. He ruled Great Britain from 1936 until his death in 1952. The Bible was used in every service in Belk Chapel until the 1970s when it was properly retired as a treasured part of the special collections in Everett Library.
Long-time Queens librarian Rena Harrell was a steadfast Anglophile and helped bring the Bible to Queens. It was delivered by the Minister of Education from the British Embassy in Washington.
It was the third gift of only four given to churches in the United States during King George's reign, making this treasure even more historically significant.
The movie won Best Picture at the 2011 Academy Awards and tells the story of the king's struggle with stuttering.
