Acknowledgments I could not have written this book without much ongoing help during the past 25 years from my many friends in Dayton, including Pat Guffey, Tom Davis, Dean Wilson, Ann Gabbert Bates, Kevin Woodruff, Ralph Green, Curtis Lipps, Freddie Brewer, Brenda Marler, Sue Purser, Todd Wood, the late Jimmy McKenzie, Donna Reed Taylor, Nigel Chadwick, Jacob Ellis, the late Eloise Reed, and Lou King. Elsewhere, I was helped by Ryan Greenwood, Todd Hatton, Susan and Jon Epperson, Jerry Adel- man, Steve Smartt, the late Layton Brueske, Vickie Bryant, Jackie Miller of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, Linda Wynn of the Tennessee Historical Commission, as well as librarians and museum curators in Salem, Illinois Washington, D.C. Ft. Worth, Texas Knox- ville, Tennessee Paducah, Kentucky and Bowling Green, Kentucky. Heidi Stover of Smithsonian Archives was especially professional, prompt, and helpful. I am particularly grateful to John and Mildred Scopes’s sons, friends, and relatives who graciously met with me and had me in their homes and at family gatherings, including John Scopes Jr., the late Jackie and Bill Scopes, Lisa Rennegarbe, Nancy Rose, Susan Brooks, Jerry Tompkins, and Jim Presley. I am also especially grateful to my editor, Kevin Downing, whose suggestions improved the manu- script. Every writer should have an editor as thorough and helpful as Kevin. Photographs in this book came from Ryan Greenwood and Mike Han- non of the Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center at the University of Minnesota Law Library (UMN), Library of Congress (LC), Rhea County Historical and Genealogical Society (RCHGS), Smithsonian Institution (SI), and First Baptist Church of Minneapolis (FBC). I thank each of these
