C. E. W. Dorris periodicals now available on microfilm

Mr. James Pike, microfilmer extraordinaire, dropped off yesterday at DCHS a microfilm reel containing the full runs of three periodicals edited and published (and printed, and mailed) by Charles Elias Webb Dorris.

They are:

The Bible Student volumes 1-4 (1899-1902), and

The Home Missionary and Tidings of Joy volumes 1-6 (1915-1920)

The filming of these journals was coordinated by Don Haymes, Assistant Librarian for Serials and Archives, Christian Theological Seminary.  David Howard, Serials Librarian at Beaman Library, Lipscomb University and McGarvey Ice, Director of Public Services, Disciples of Christ Historical Society assisted by providing the hard copies (David) and introducing the periodicals (Mac).

I will shortly post to this blog my introduction as it appears on the film.  Below is a shot of the front page of vol. 1 no. 1 of The Bible Student.  You can read something here of the genesis of his publishing career:
