Willis Duke Weatherford: Race, Religion, and Reform in the American South

Andrew McNeill Canady

Willis Duke Weatherford: Race, Religion, and Reform in the American South by Andrew McNeill Canady

At the turn of the twentieth century, few white, southern leaders would speak out in favor of racial equality for fear of being dismissed as too progressive. Willis Duke Weatherford (1875--1970), however, defied convention as one of the first prominent white southern liberals to dedicate his life to reforming the South's social system, eliminating violence and injustice through education, and opening a dialogue among the affected groups.

Dr. David C. Johnson

An Unexpected Finish Line Leaves a Unique Legacy: One Persons Short Journey Impacts the Journey of Many by Dr. David C. Johnson"Engineering, at it's core, seeks to leverage a deeper understanding of God's physical creation for some useful purpose". Penned by Dr. Kenneth Johnson, those words reflect the unwavering commitment of a Renaissance man whose life was committed to serving Christ and bringing hope to those in need. Dr. Kenneth Johnson left significantly more than a tragedy behind him when he left this world in November 2013 at the age of 43. In the words of Dr. John C. Bowling, President of Olivet Nazarene University (O.N.U.)," Ken was deeply faithdriven and a tremendous professor who inspired greatness from...

Elizabeth Stone

A Boy I Once Knew: What a Teacher Learned from her Student by Elizabeth StoneOne morning, a box was delivered to Elizabeth Stone's door. It held ten years of personal diaries and a letter that began "Dear Elizabeth, You must be wondering why I left you my diaries in my will. After all, we have not seen each other in over twenty years . . ."

What followed was a remarkable year in Elizabeth's life as she read Vincent's diaries and began to learn about the high school student she had taught twenty-five years before. A Boy I Once Knew is the story of the man that Vincent had become-and the efforts of his teacher to make some sense of his life.

With his diaries, Vincent becomes...

A School in South Uist: Reminiscences of a Hebridean Schoolmaster, 1890-1913

F. G. Rea & John Lorne Campbell

A School in South Uist: Reminiscences of a Hebridean Schoolmaster, 1890-1913 by F. G. Rea & John Lorne CampbellThese are the memories of Frederick Rea, an English teacher who became headmaster of Garrynamonie School in South Uist in the 1890s. At that time, the Hebrides were as remote and forbidding to mainlanders as the Antarctic is to us today, and South Uist was one of the poorer districts. Roads were often no more than rough tracks across the mountain moorland or over the storm-swept machair. His Gaelic-speaking pupils were often frozen and starving, and fever epidemics were frequent. Rea's memoirs show how he strove to meet these difficulties. His pupils remember him as a sincere, conscientious...
