Kathryn Kuhlman Biography
Birthday: May 9, 1907 (Taurus)
Born In: Johnson County, Missouri, United States
Kathryn Kuhlman was a preacher, orator and faith healer. A renowned evangelist, she garnered fame for her healing services. Originally from Missouri, Kuhlman had her first spiritual experience when she was 14 years old. She eventually joined her elder sister and brother-in-law as an itinerant preacher in Idaho. At some point after that, she was appointed a minister by the Evangelical Church Alliance. Between 1938 and 1948, she was married to a Texas evangelist named Burroughs Waltrip, but their relationship had issues since the beginning. Waltrip left his former wife for Kuhlman, a fact that she was not aware of, believing the contrary to be true, that she had left him. From the 1940s to 1970s, she went all over the world to hold her “healing crusades”, establishing herself as one of the most prominent healing ministers of her time. She had TV and radio shows and published several books. Throughout the years, her claims of healing people of various diseases have been contested, most notably by Dr. William A. Nolen, who conducted a lengthy case study of 23 people who considered themselves to be healed by Kuhlman and found that none among them was successfully cured. Dr. Nolen’s findings, in turn, was disputed by Kuhlman’s supporters.
