Herbert J. Taylor (1893-1978) was a successful businessman in Chicago. He was
also an active Christian layman who was involved in dozens of evangelistic outreach
programs, from radio broadcasts to soup kitchens, with a speciual emphais on work
with children. Besides the programs he personally worked in and supported, he was
in correspondence with many, many more (Such as the ministry of evangelist John R.
Rice, illustrated by the poster above.) His correspondence in Collection 20 is a
reflection of the fervent activity going on among fundamentalists and evangelicals
of the time, a time when the groundwork was laid for the national resurgence of
evangelism in the second half of the century.
