We have a winner!
You may remember back in July when we announced the opening of our new digital exhibit "Moustaches, Muttonchops, and Beards" and invited you to spend some time getting to know a few of the most influential historic Congregationalists who happened to also sport noteworthy facial hair. We also invited you to vote for your favorite, and today I am pleased to announce our winner!
You can learn more about Rev. Ward's life story by visiting our exhibit. For a more in-depth introduction to the man, we have put together this short list of web resources:
- Congregational Yearbook necrology listing
- Joseph Ward of Dakota by George Harrison Durand
- WorldCat Identities Page — Lists the most popular publications by and about Joseph Ward. Clicking on a publication's title will tell you which libraries hold copies of that title.
- U.S. Capital Historical Society Blog — Did you know that a statue of Joseph Ward stands in the Capital Visitor Center and is considered to be part of the National Statuary Hall Collection?
