Another man well known in literary circles has decided to make Evanston his home. He is the Rev. Poindexter Smith Hanson, who for almost twenty years was pastor of the First Baptist church of Chicago. For many years he was opposed to that which he terms "the destructive higher criticism," and was active in his arraignment of several professors in the University of Chicago whom Dr. Hanson believed to be too radical in their opinions. Dr. Hanson has had an interesting career. Born in Fluvanna county, Va., on December 7, 1831, he was educated at Richmond college and the University of Virginia. He studied law, entered the ministry, and became pastor of the Broad Street Baptist church in Philadelphia before the Civil war. He resigned from the ministry in 1908. Since that year he has been active in missionary and literary work.
