A Nashville Flyaway: Is This The Same Bob Marshall?

At a Nashville estate sale a few months ago, in a most wonderful moldy basement, I dug out from underneath a heap of newspapers (which I also purchased) a fairly decent copy of the 1926 volume of Elam’s Notes.  In it were two receipts of unknown origin and this broadside.  Acidic and brittle, it is about 8 x 10 in.

American Baptist Seminary continues to this hour as American Baptist College.  I suspect the Gilbert Tolbert mentioned here is one and the same as this WW2 Navy veteran.  This broadside notwithstanding, Bob Marshall served two years as Davidson County Sheriff, 1940-1942.  Who knows of L. B. Nelson or the Corinthian Baptist Church?  Who knows of R. D. ‘Bob’ Marshall?  Who knows of Gilbert Tolbert?
