In His Traces
The Life and Times of R.E.B. Baylor
Eugene W. Baker recounts the eighty-year life of Baylor University's most recognizable founder—Robert Emmett Bledsoe Baylor. Drawing on the personal records of Baylor himself, Baker constructs a complete history of the founder, from his ancestral roots until the time of his death in 1873. One of the three founders of Baylor University, Judge R.E.B. Baylor's life as a committed Christian, military devotee, and Texan is remarkably captured in this comprehensive volume.
Eugene W. Baker was Baylor University historian from 1981 to 1995 and is the author of To Light the Ways of Time and As We Onward Go: Baylor University in the 21st Century.
