Additional Information

In August of 1903, Mr. D.M. Smith was elected as a book agent for the Methodist Publishing House in Nashville, Tennessee with Reverend Lamar, an Alabama Minister, as his assistant. Together they formed Smith & Lamar. They would publish 10 books with the M.E. Publishing House from 1903-1919, including the 1909 book Dreams and Realities by Lula Belle Corpier. 

It should be noted that no primary source connects Smith & Lamar to the 1917 Long Beach Assembly; however, Smith & Lamar is the only professional company active during 1917 with this name.  

The 1917 Long Beach Assembly was likely held in Long Beach, Mississippi.
