Lusk, William B., 1901-1949
Note

Location: Paul Smith's, New York; New York City, New York; Montreal, Canada; Belfast, Ireland; Norton, Ridgefield, Connecticut; London, England; Chicago, Illinois.

1901-1905 correspondence is concerned chiefly with camping in the Adirondacks. There is some discussion of parish matters, for Lusk was a minister responsible for several mission churches in the Adirondacks. There is also a good deal of discussion of Lusk's mental state and his religious problems. In summer of 1905, Lusk opened school.

At the end of 1905, Lusk announced his coming marriage to Edna Bright (December 19). For several months before and after, he was undergoing a mental crisis trying to reconcile Darwinism and the Higher Criticism of the Bible with his religion. These years in the mountains are in Lusks pamphlet, “Memories of the early days of St. Regis' Presbyterian Church,” enclosed in his letter of 1945 September 1.

There are a number of letters from Belfast, where Lusk went to attend college after nearly breaking with his church over the issue of Darwinism. On returning from Belfast in 1908, Lusk ran into hard times and most of the correspondence is concerned with Mrs. Blaine's efforts to help Lusk pay for the illnesses of his wife, infant daughter, and himself.

From 1915 to 1949, Lusk was Rector of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. Most letters concern his own family affairs and reminiscences of the years 1901-1905 in the Adirondacks. The reminiscences often concerned Emmons, whose birthday was a ritual among the circle involved in the camp years.

In 1925, Lusk went to England for a meeting of the Toc H society, a YMCA-like organization growing out of World War I. Lusk became American representative of Toc H (abbreviation for Talbot House) in America and later joined the group's effort to raise funds for the British War Relief Society (1940 June 25, 1940 November 7) and from 1942 through 1948 in the effort to raise funds to reconstruct All Hallows Chapel in London, headquarters of the Talbot House Group.
