Title: The Larger Hope: The First Century of the Universalist Church in America, 1770-1870
Quantity: 4 boxes
Abstract: The last version The Larger Hope: The First Century of the Universalist Church in America, 1770-1870 by Tufts University history professor and archivist Russell Elliott Miller (1916-1993). This version was edited by Carl Seaburg and is supposed to be identical with the published book.
Russell Elliott Miller (1916-1993) earned an undergraduate degree in 1937 and an MA in 1939, both from the University of Florida. He also taught at the University of Florida for a short time prior to entering the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Following World War II, Miller earned a second masters degree from Princeton in 1958. He served on the faculty of Tufts University, as university archivist, from 1952 to 1964. In 1969, the Universalist Historical Association employed Miller to research and publish a comprehensive history of Universalism in America. Miller spent much of the rest of his life engaged in this work, eventually publishing The Larger Hope: The First Century of the Universalist Church in America, 1770-1870 in 1978. Miller's duties as Tufts University archivist also led to the publication of Light on the Hill: A History of Tufts College, 1852-1952 in 1966 and a second volume Light on the Hill: A History of Tufts College since 1952 in 1986.
