Nashville Globe – 1 Mar 1907
Rev. J.P. Robinson Coming — At the next regular meeting of the National Baptist Publishing Board, which is to be held on the second Tuesday in March, it is learned that the Rev. J.P. Robinson, D.D., of Little Rock, Ark., will be in attendance. He is a member of this board as well as chairman of the House Mission Board of the National Baptist Convention with headquarters at Little Rock, Ark. Dr. Robinson is supposed to meet both the Publishing Board and the Home Mission Board, but owing to the distance and extreme pressure of business, he is not always present. He has not been to Nashville since just prior to the meeting of the National Convention, but is always represented by proxy. Dr. Robinson is one of the leading ministers in the Baptist denomination; he is pastor of the First Baptist Church, Little Rock, Ark., which has a membership fo 1,200. He is also Vice President of the Capital City Savings Bank and the author of several books. His last “Sermons and Sermonettes,” is now about on its third edition. As a minister, he is one of the logical few of the old which God left in the South.
