William R. Hutchison directed “Mainstream Protestantism I,” that enabled the research, writing, and publication of the book “Between the Times: The Travail of the Protestant Establishment in America, 1900-1960” (Cambridge University Press), published in 1989, edited by Hutchison. Hutchison and associates organized a panel meeting and held an author’s luncheon/conference during the 1985 meetings of the American Society of Church History. In October 1986 they reconvened the authors at the Charles Warren Center at Harvard to discuss the book’s chapters, by then in its penultimate stage. The authors designed the book to help set the course of discussion and debate among church historians about American mainstream Protestantism during the 20th century.
