Rev. Dr. Frederick W. Betts: Civic Leader, Crusader and Pastor at First Universalist Church for over 40 years

For a period of time after his death, our congregation was known as the Betts Memorial Universalist Church. He was a major civic leader in pursuit of social justice and earned his favorite accolade among many “Syracuse’s Most Useful Citizen” awarded to him by the congregation of the First Baptist Church. Come join us in celebrating one of our most famous roots! And yes, the Betts branch library was named after him.
