Description

This collection contains correspondence and biographical material about E.J.A. McKinney.

Biographical/Historical Note

E.J.A. McKinney was born November 11, 1869, in Hokes Bluff, Alabama, to John Boone and Eliza Jane Coffey McKinney. In 1876, the McKinneys moved to Arkansas, settling at Harrisburg on Crowley's Ridge. E.J.A. married Rebecca Hinton and became a Baptist minister. They moved to Little Rock, where tensions among Baptist leaders eventually impacted the relationship between McKinney and his former friend, E.P. Alldredge. In 1923, McKinney became the pastor of a church in Atkins, Arkansas. Returning to Little Rock in 1928, he became involved in efforts to save Arkansas Baptist Hospital. When ill health forced him to resign his official duties, he devoted more time to writing a history of Arkansas Baptists, a project he had been working on for some time. McKinney died July 5, 1936.
