James Graham Leyburn Sunday School Lectures
This collection consists of a small three ring binder of typescript Sunday school lectures by Dr. James G. Leyburn, one of Washington and Lee's most revered 20th century professors. Leyburn used this notebook to teach his class at the Lexington (Va.) Presbyterian Church from October 2, 1949 to the final class of the year on May 28, 1950. The lectures cover and introduction to the Bible, it's characters, and the tenets of Presbyterianism. In the final lecture, Leyburn details a transformative experience that occurred during his college years in regards to his Christian belief system. Also included in the collection is a 1969 pamphlet published by Washington and Lee University titled 'Profile of a Teacher: Dr. Leyburn' and an enlarged photocopy of the Leyburn's final lecture of the Sunday school notebook titled 'What I Believe.'
