[Buffalo?]: n.d. [1951]. [12] unnumbered pages plus two outer leaves (cover). Softcover. Stapled twice along left edge. Mimeo on cheap paper. Chipped along top edge (with no loss of text). Beck says in the autobiographical information on the first text page that he was born in Mobile, Alabama in 1911 and that his mother had 22 children. Other sources suggest that he was born in 1900. Beck also says that he went to Nigeria after the death of his mother in 1920 and became Chief of a tribe in the "Province of Ibidan." Whatever his origins and early life, we do know that this talented African American was a succesful evangelist and musician who recorded over 60 songs. He died in Ghana in 1972. Good. Item #88763
