Baptists in Early North America—Newport, Rhode Island, Seventh Day Baptists , Volume III covers the period 1664 to 1808, from the date some members of Newport’s first Baptist church began meeting for worship on the seventh-day Sabbath (Saturday) through the first 137 years of their life as the Newport Seventh Day Baptist Church. Transcriptions of the church’s first three record books (1692–1808) are preceded by extensive excerpts from the manuscripts and letters of Samuel Hubbard, one of the founding members; these document the origins in John Clarke’s Newport Baptist church and the influences from Sabbathkeeping Baptists in mid-seventeenth century England.

While the world had been at war for almost three years, Woodrow Wilson had been able to keep the United States out of the action. Then, with the resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare by Germany and the collapse of the three-hundred year old imperial government of Russia, the US was forced to enter the fray. In a novel move, Wilson sent the AEF into Siberia to prevent war by limited military action if necessary and to encourage and maintain peace. The idea was that this military action would allow a popular government time to evolve and take control. US policy of limited military intervention in order to permit the establishment of democratic governments began with the AEF in Siberia, a policy still in use as we enter a new century.

The diary, which begins in the days before Childs enters Soviet Russia in 1921 and ends rather abruptly in August 1923, about six months before he left, is a detailed, in-depth view of Childs's Russian experience. The diary also gives a firsthand view of the early days of Lenin's famous New Economic Policy (NEP), which was really a partial return to old capitalism.

For more than seventy years, beginning in 1939, when he penned his first play, Wharton Dance, Horton Foote was regarded as one of America’s most revered dramatists. With his probing and perceptive dramas, he succeeded in charting the landscape of small-town America while creating classics of modern theatre and film that have found devoted audiences around the world. Foote wrote more than a hundred plays and screenplays for cinema, theatre, and television, and was equally successful in all three mediums--a record of variety and productivity unmatched by any other writer. With a foreword by Hallie Foote, this biography is the most thorough and comprehensive to date of American dramatist Horton Foote. Drawing on the author's complete access to Foote's personal papers and extended conversations with the writer, his family, and his friends, Marion Castleberry discusses all the important aspects of Horton Foote's life and career--his Wharton, Texas childhood, his devotion to family, his deep Christian faith, his abiding passion for the theatre, and his successes as a screenwriter and independent filmmaker.
