Would an Book on Rutherford really be worthwhile?

    I have to make a decision now as to continue researching Judge Rutherford with a view of writing a book, or just let him go (after all, he died 63 years ago!)

    What do people here think?

    Would a book about Rutherford be a worthwhile project? or just a waste of time and money? (The amount of money required to research Rutherford is not insignificant!)

    I ask this because I am sure that many witnesses today could care less about Rutherford, with "Rutherford who?" being said if his name is mentioned. But there might be a few who would indeed want to read about "The Judge".

    Decisions, Decisions!

    I love reading about the Dead Presidents.

    Make it an ebook and sell it cheap.

    hi minimus,

    Well speaking of Dead Presidents, the initial research cost would be about one dead George president for each of the posts I have made here up to now (about 1400), this is what I mean about the cost involved not being insignificant!

    Yes, that is a possibility. Lulu.com offers a way to publish either "books on demand" or downloadable ebooks.

    A couple of years ago there was someone from this site that was working on a book. Can't remember who it was or if the book was ever published.

    If you decide to go forward I may be able to help you out with some of the info on his early life as I have done some research in that area and then lost interest. I know where he grew up, have visited the location of the town, farm & church that he attended, his parents are burried in the cemetery adjacent to the farm. I know where he attended school and the law firm where he worked before going to NY. I live close to where he grew up and lived prior to going to new york so I have access to historical libraries in the area.

    Of course we would have to negotiate royalties from any profits made from the book.

    HaHa, yes, you might be right Reluctant Buddha.

    Or, the ten people who would be interested in a Rutherford book are all here at JWD!
