Indian University Press Publishes New History of Bacone College by Russell M. Lawson

Bacone College, the oldest college in Oklahoma, is celebrating its 135th year. The college, founded by Christian missionaries to the American Indians of eastern and western Oklahoma, still reaches out to American Indians, as well as Caucasian, Black, Hispanic, and Asian students, to provide a liberal arts education in a small college, Christian environment.

Russell M. Lawson has written a complete narrative history of Bacone College, examining its merits and shortcomings. The book, Marking the Jesus Road: Bacone College through the Years, highlights the contributions of students to the intellectual life of this small college in Muskogee Oklahoma.

The 329-page illustrated paperback sells for $19.99, and can be purchased at the Bacone Bookstore:
