    to get back on track,

    Christabel Pankhurst: Fundamentalism and Feminism in Coalition

    p. 100
    "Straton was the pre-eminent fundamentalist in the northeastern part of the United States in the 1920s. In 1922, he founded the Fundamentalist League of Greater New York. Straton was also a principal supporter of Christabel Pankhurst and he frequently relinquished his pulpit at Calvary Baptist Church in order that his large congregation might benefit from her ministry."

    p. 101
    "Pankhurst was one of the main speakers at the annual conference of the World's Christian Fundamentals Association when it met in Philadelphia in May 1931....Other speakers at the 1931 annual conference included H. A. Ironside, W B. Riley, Will H. Houghton, Lewis Sperry Chafer, J. Oliver Buswell....On the first full day of the conference, Pankhurst was given the choicest spot on the programme: she was the last evening speaker (having already spoken in the afternoon as well), sharing the platform with Will H. Houghton"

    [Will H. Houghton was Straton's successor at Calvary Baptist Church]

    p. 100
    "The third annual Fundamentalist Rally and Prophetic Conference...held at a Baptist church in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in September 1932...was sponsored by...the Interstate Evangelistic Association....beside the prominent place offered to Pankhurst — the speakers...included Howard C. Fulton, Will H. Houghton, and Cortland Myers. Fulton, a minister in Chicago, that very same year would chair a separatistic meeting that created...the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches"

    While searching this, I found that Straton's position set him at odd with I. M. Haldeman, pastor of First Baptist Church in New York. Haldeman was from a different generation, about 30 years older than John Roach Straton.

    I just finished reading this book mentioned One In Hope and Doctrine. I was somewhat surprised to read what it had to say about Amy Lee Stockton. We were members of a GARBC church for many years, and had guests such as Paul Tassell and officers from ABWE speak from our pulpit. We had female missionaries speak also on Sunday. Overall though I have not studied the issue of women pastors, I don't want to say that much about it but is there a difference between a local church pastor and a visiting evangelists?

    They both preach.

    Amy Lee Stockton had the endorsement of G. Campbell Morgan:

    She was preaching in Kingsburg, California's "Little Sweden".
    Hence the notice: "All services conducted to be conducted in the English language."

    One of the earliest churches to welcome Amy Lee Stockton was Hamilton Square Baptist Church of San Francisco, California:
