REV. JAMES HOGE : A Look Back In Memorium

     The Life of Reverend James Hoge was a blend of spiritual shepherd, community pioneer, and guardian to the blind and deaf.  On the 50 Anniversary of Hoge Memorial Presbyterian Church in Columbus, Ohio, a series of articles were written about his life.  The sketches were taken from notes gathered by the late Foster Copeland and assembled by his daughter, Miss Eleanor Copeland back in January 1956.  The articles were written by M. K. Weber and Paul Hess, historians of Hoge Memorial P. C. For our story visit the chapters below by clicking on the blue underlined titles.
