Letters Tell
Of Douglas'
Dual Career
The University's Historical Col-
lections in the Rackham Bldg. are
currently centered on the career
of a famous author who once lived
in Ann Arbor-Lloyd C. Douglas.
Douglas, author of "The Robe"
and a Congregational minister,
was pastor of Ann Arbor's First
Congregational Church from 1915
to 1921, and its Douglas Memorial
Chapel was built with funds do-
nated by him.
The current exhibition contains
the manuscript of "The Robe"
and personal items related to
Douglas' career as novelist and
minister.
In a letter of 1941, Douglas
wrote of the problems he en-
countered in writing his bestseller:
"I completed the sixth chapter
yesterday. It was very difficult and
required more than three weeks
work. It dealt-quite realistically
too-with the crucifixion as viewed
through dispassionate pagan eyes.
This has not been done before so
far as my information goes.
