Editorial Reviews

Review

“A doubleheader . . . a collective biography of an influential Midwest couple and their material worlds . . . as well as a contribution to historic museum interpretation and American religious history.”--Thomas J. Schlereth, author of Victorian America

“In Rare Form provides a fascinating exposition of the material 'stuff' and family life of Billy Sunday, the popular baseball player turned successful evangelist. Firstenberger's thoughtful analysis of Sunday's home and its contents is a uniquely valuable study of an important and intriguing figure in American cultural history.”--Wendy Knickerbocker, author of Sunday at the Ballpark: Billy Sunday's Professional Baseball Career, 1883-1890

About the Author

W. A. Firstenberger received his BA from the University of Notre Dame and his MA from Indiana University. Since 1998 he has been curator at the Billy Sunday Historic Site Museum in Winona Lake, Indiana.
