My name is Mary Beth Mathews, and I’m an associate professor of religion at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I received my undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary, worked on Capitol Hill for nine years, and then moved on to graduate studies at the University of Virginia. My first book, Rethinking Zion: How the Print Media Placed Fundamentalism in the South, was published in 2006. My second book, Doctrine and Race: African American Evangelicals and Fundamentalism Between the Wars, has recently been published by the University of Alabama Press.

  1. Hello Ms. Mathews! Apparently I am related to you. While doing research on my ancestors I came across Rose Marton Kulamer. My grandfather, Joseph C. Gimesky, was her brother-in-law. Joseph’s wife was Julia Marton Gimesky who was Rose’s sister and my grandmother. I never knew my grandparents. My father Elmer J. Gimesky was 47 when I was born and passed in 1991.
