Scope and Content Note
The Austin Taylor Papers contain one hymnal printing plate for the hymn "Do All In The Name of The Lord" with shaped notes by Austin Taylor.
Austin Taylor was born October 14, 1881 to Garrard Banks Taylor and Susan Holloway Taylor in Morgantown, Kentucky. His family moved to Sherman, Texas in 1890. He married Augusta Barbara Jerger in 1908. It was in Texas that his interest in music began to develop. Taylor went on to become a music teacher, hymnal editor, and songwriter whose influence is still seen among the Churches of Christ. His work included editing hymnals published by Firm Foundation in Austin, Texas with G. H. P. Showalter and co-founding the Texas Normal Singing School. Taylor died in 1973 in Uvalde, Texas. The hymnal printing plate in this collection is for the song "Do All In The Name of the Lord." It was first published in New Songs of Praise (Austin, Texas: Firm Foundation, 1916) and quickly became a standard among the Churches of Christ.
