New! The Minister’s Diary, Volume 1: 1936-1949
Take a trip back in time and follow the life of a Methodist minister starting with his birth in Groton, Vermont in 1902. Read the stories of his newspaper printing escapades (including during the great influenza of 1917-1918), his time at Dartmouth and Harvard, his work with the New England Telephone & Telegraph Company, his ministry experiences, life during World War II, the many fishing trips, vacations on the farm, and trips to New York City (including a visit to the 1938 World Fair and the time he saw smoke billowing out of the Empire State Building after a B-25 bomber crashed into it in July of 1945). Meet a cast of exciting characters including Mr. Harry C. Whitehall––the owner of The Waterbury Record and WDEV radio, Henry S. Dennison (paper manufacturing magnate), and writer Edmund Ware Smith. Return to a simpler time when a love for God, Nation, Community, and Family dominated life in an America filled with decency, honesty, hard work, and appreciation.
