Description

If little is known about James Huckins, then historical material about his fellow missionary, pastor, and Baylor University co-founder William Milton Tryon is nearly nonexistent. The pictographic record is sparse, and the history of his life is largely confined to the seven-year period he spent leading Baptist denominations in the state of Texas. Yet, as Eugene W. Baker's compassionate tale illustrates, Tryon, who was the first to dream of Baylor as an institution of Christian higher learning, left a long-felt legacy among his contemporaries and those Baptists yet to come.
