Biographical Note

Alfredo Náñez was born in Monclova, Mexico in 1902. While working in Eagle Pass, Texas in 1922, he attended revival services led by Dr. Frank S. Onderdonk of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. During the revival Náñez committed his life to Jesus Christ and felt called to enter the ministry. In preparation he studied at the Wesleyan Institute of San Antonio, Southwestern University (B.A., 1930), and the Southern Methodist University (SMU) School of Theology (B.D., 1932). Náñez received honorary Doctor of Divinity degrees from Southwestern University in 1950 and from SMU in 1979. In 1986 he became the first recipient of the Perkins School of Theology Distinguished Alumni Award.

Rev. Náñez held pastoral appointments in San Antonio (1924-1927 and 1932-1934), Georgetown (1927-1930), Brownsville (1934-1937), and Mission, Texas (1965-1966). At the conference level he served as District Superintendent, editor of El Heraldo Cristiano, chairman of the Commission on World Service and Finance, and Executive Secretary of the Board of Education. His denominational leadership roles included terms on the Board of Missions, the Committee for Overseas Relief, and as a delegate to three Jurisdictional and General Conferences.

Between 1966 and 1970 Alfredo Náñez served as President of the Lydia Patterson Institute in El Paso. He also taught in the Courses of Study School at Perkins School of Theology for more than two decades. In 1970 Náñez joined the faculty of Perkins School of Theology as Professor of Practical Theology and Lecturer in Mexican American Studies, retiring in 1973.

Alfredo Náñez was the editor of Himnario Metodista (Rio Grande Conference, 1955), Ritual de la Iglesia Metodista (1965), Himnario Metodista (United Methodist Publishing House, 1973), and translator into Spanish of The Organization of the United Methodist Church (1975). He was co-author with Walter N. Vernon and John H. Graham of One in the Lord: A History of Ethnic Minorities in the South Central Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church (1977) and author of History of the Rio Grande Conference of the United Methodist Church (Bridwell Library, 1980-1981).

Clotilde Falcón de Náñez, a seventh generation Tejano, was born in Rio Grande City, Texas in 1908. She studied at Westmoreland College in San Antonio and graduated cum laude from the University of Texas at Austin (B.A., 1932) where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Clotilde Náñez later attended SMU, receiving a Master of Arts degree in Ibero-American civilization in 1970. Her work as an educator included teaching in public schools and serving fourteen years as Head of the Spanish department at Saint Mary’s Hall, a private, college preparatory school in San Antonio. She also taught at Trinity University, San Antonio, in the SMU School of Continuing Education, Dallas, and at Pan American University, Edinburgh, Texas.

Clotilde Náñez served the church as an author, compiler, and translator of Sunday School curriculum; as hymn writer, translator, and hymnal committee member; and as a School of Christian Mission instructor. She was a member of the Women’s Division of the Board of Missions of The Methodist Church from 1964 to 1968. Falcón de Náñez was elected to many leadership positions in the Woman’s Society of Christian Service (WSCS), today’s United Methodist Women. From 1975 to 1977 she served as president of the Rio Grande Conference WSCS.

Clotilde Náñez’s published writings include hymn texts and translations, Sunday School lessons for students and teachers, and articles in church-related periodicals. For twenty-six consecutive years she and her mother, Élida García de Falcón, translated the WSCS annual program books into Spanish. Falcón de Náñez was the author of “Hispanic Clergy Wives: Their Contribution to United Methodism in the Southwest,” a chapter in the 1981 book Women in New Worlds. With her husband she co-authored “Methodism among the Spanish Speaking People of Texas,” a chapter in The History of Texas Methodism, 1900-1960.

In 1986 The Women’s Division of the General Board of Global Ministries honored Clotilde Náñez by including her biography in the book, They Went Out Not Knowing… An Encyclopedia of One Hundred Women in Mission. The 2000 Rio Grande Annual Conference memorialized her with these words: “Hermana Clotilde Falcón de Náñez fue para nuestra Conferencia una matriarca, columna, y discipula ejemplar.” (“Sister Clotilde Falcón de Náñez was for our conference a matriarch, pillar, and model disciple.”)

Clotilde Falcón and Alfredo Náñez met in 1926 and were married in Brownsville, Texas in 1934. They had three children: Guillermo Náñez, Ph.D., Marta Consuelo Harris, and Rolando Antonio Náñez.
