Summary Outspoken New England urbanite Horace Holley (1781-1827) was an unlikely choice to become the president of Transylvania University - the first college established west of the Allegheny Mountains. In this definitive biography, James P. Cousins offers fresh perspectives on a seminal yet controversial figure in American religious history and educational life.
