Ann T. Snyder was for many years a researcher for Dr. A. Kenneth Curtis, former President of Christian History Institute/Vision Video and founder of Christian History Magazine. She also worked with Dr. Curtis on Glimpses, an illustrated pamphlet about Christian History with world-wide subscribers. Following the death of Dr. Curtis, Ann joined the library staff of Biblical Seminary, Hatfield, PA, where she works on special projects.

Two articles by her appeared in Issue 100 of Christian History Magazine. A number of years ago she published a slim volume of verse, Philadelphia Impressions, which she also illustrated. She enjoys sharing her short stories with her friends.

Ann has a great love for all things Anglican, music, archaeology and books. In her youth she had the pleasure of working as a volunteer at the University of Pennsylvania Museum with the late Dr. Samuel Noah Kramer copying texts from cuneiform tablet fragments on loan from the Baghdad Museum. Her collection of books led a friend to quip “the local library is a branch of yours.”

Among her favorite authors are: George MacDonald, Anthony Trollope, and P. D. James.
