Rizpah Bowers Red historical sketches, circa 1920s
Rizpah Clark Bowers Red was born on October 9, 1865. She graduated from the University of Texas in 1884 and was married to William Stuart Red (1857-1933), a Presbyterian minister and historian, in 1896. The Reds served in several Texas cities, but lived in Austin after 1919. After her husband’s death in 1933, Mrs. Red completed and published his book A History of the Presbyterian Church in Texas (1936), with the help of their nephew.
This collection consists of two historical sketches, one on Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary and one on Daniel Baker College. They appear to have been prepared to give as speeches sometime in the early 1920s.
Materials are available by appointment only. Contact the archivist for details.
