Among the most colorful of the early Seventh-day Adventist church workers was Stephen Nelson Haskell. A self-made man, fearless, and endowed with ingenuity, courage, and vision, Haskell led in a number of enterprises that were accepted and established by the denomination. He was the first to make an around-the-world trip in the interest of Adventist missions, taking almost two years. He was a leader in city mission work, and we think of him as the father of the tract and missionary societies from which developed the Book and Bible Houses and two departments of the church--Publishing and Home Missionary.

About the author (2004)

Mrs. Ella M. Robinson, granddaughter of James and Ellen White, is well qualified to write the story of Stephen Haskell. In her early teens she was in his Bible class during the first year of the Avondale Training School, in New South Wales, Australia. She was given access to the White-Haskell correspondence, comprising nearly three hundred letters written by Mrs. White to the Haskells and many hundreds of letters by the Haskells to James and Ellen White and their son, William C. White, the author's father. Published reports in the Review and Herald and other denominational journals also furnished rich contemporary data for the story.
