Samuel Marinus Zwemer (1867-1952), b. Vriesland, Michigan; d. New York City. Zwemer's missionary zeal and dedication earned him the nickname "The Apostle to the Muslims." After serving many years in the Middle East, in 1929 he was appointed Professor of Missions at Princeton Theological Seminary, a post he held until his retirement in 1938. Afterwards he continued to teach, both at the C&MA Missionary Training Center in Nyack, NY, and at the Biblical Seminary (now New York Theological Seminary) in NYC.
