Biographical Note

Orlando Clayton Lambert was born in Alabama on 16 September 1890 to William E. Lambert and Paratine Dodd Lambert. At 17 years old he became a certified teacher and continued to teach for over a decade. He then attended Highland Home College, Nashville Bible School, and Peabody College. His first wife died in 1941. Lambert’s health began struggling as he also cared for his 13 year old son. A year later, he married Sallie Russell. At age 62 he began working on his book, Catholicism Against Itself, Volume 1. He later authored a second volume along with three additional books: Rumbling from Rome, Russellism Unveiled, and Catholicism Against Itself-Abridged. Lambert passed away on March 5, 1972 in Alabama. His wife Sallie and sons Horace, O. C. Jr., and Hillman Lambert survived him.
