The story of Baptist beginnings in Rhode Island through Roger Williams and John Clarke is a familiar one. The writer of this dissertation, while reviewing the early and familiar chapter of Baptist beginnings in America, concentrates upon the more recent and neglected period from 1825 to 1931. The result of the research is the first state history of Rhode Island Baptists. The principal primary sources for this study have been the annual minutes of the Rhode Island Baptist State Convention; the yearbooks of the Warren, Providence, Narragansett, and Roger Williams associations; and the minutes of seven representative Baptist churches. State, city, and town histories have also been consulted as well as Rhode Island newspapers and contemporary Baptist magazines and journals. [TRUNCATED]
