I am writing an article on whether C.T. Russell was a Mason. I am of the opinion that he was not, given the evidence.
I just bought B.W. Schulz's book, A Separate Identity: Organizational Identity Among Readers of Zion’s Watch Tower: 1870-1887, I can't wait to get my hands on it, it seems like it's going to be quite a dense read.
The thing is, I have no idea who B.W. Schulz is. I don't know if the author is a man or a woman, if he/she is a JW, a Bible Student, an exJW, or what. (I am going to refer to the author as a "he").
Certainly his website doesn't give me too much confidence that he's not biased. It's a blog called truthhistory...
From the reviews, however, it seems to be a "neutral" book. We'll have to see.
Does anyone know about the author?
