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.
