dc.description.abstract"In 1939 thirteen strident ministerial students charged four professors and a student laboratory assistant with heresy. One of the accusing students was John M. Birch, whose name was later attached to the anticommunist movement of the cold war era. The students, encouraged by some local pastors, gave legally sworn affidavits, the majority of which focused on Professor John D. Freeman of the Christianity department. Others charged were professors Josiah Crudup, John D. Allen, and W. T. Smalley, as well as lab assistant James Wallace." - http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/articles/education/mercer-university#Heresy-Trialen_US
