Biograpical Sketch

William Martin (Ph.D, Harvard, 1969), is the Harry and Hazel Chavanne Emeritus Professor of Religion and Public Policy in the Department of Sociology at Rice. Since his retirement from teaching in June 2005, he serves as the Chavanne Senior Fellow for Religion and Public Policy at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice. His areas of specialization include religion, criminology, and issues related to drug use and drug policy. He has been a professor at Rice since 1968.

Professor Martin's recent research and writing have focused in two areas: 1) religious fundamentalism and its impact in the political arena, in the United States and elsewhere; and 2) issues related to drugs, with particular emphasis on ways to reduce the harms associated with drug abuse and drug policy. In this connection, he has organized and chaired a series of programs at conferences at the Baker Institute dealing with these issues.

After several years of experience as a boy preacher, Bill Martin attended Abilene (Texas) Christian University, where he received B.A. (1958) and M.A. (1960) degrees in Biblical Studies and taught for one year as a graduate assistant. He then attended Harvard Divinity School, where he received the B.D. degree in 1963. In 1969, he received his Ph.D. from Harvard, in a program known as Religion and Society, a joint effort between the Divinity School and the Department of Social Relations. His dissertation, Christians in Conflict: The Role of the Clergy in Racial Conflict in Rochester, New York, was prepared under the direction of Harvey Cox, Joseph Fichter, and Thomas Pettigrew. At Harvey Cox's suggestion, he submitted an article based on his thesis to The Atlantic Monthly, which published it as the lead article in its December 1967 issue. Flushed with the pleasure of having his work read by large numbers, Bill Martin began to follow an unusual career path of publishing mainly in high-quality magazines such as The Atlantic, Harper's, Esquire, and Texas Monthly, for which he wrote a three-year monthly series of articles on Texas churches that led to his being the subject of a "60 Minutes" segment in September 1979.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Professor Martin concentrated mainly on religious broadcasters and was one of the first academicians to give serious attention to what came to be known as the Electronic Church. At the end of the 1970s, this led naturally to increased attention to fundamentalist involvement in politics and the rise of the movement known as the Religious Right. This work culminated, after dozens of articles, in his writing "With God on Our Side: The Rise of the Religious Right in America" (Broadway Books, 1996), the companion volume to the PBS mini-series of the same name and for which he served as chief consultant. A revised edition of both the book and the video series appeared in the summer of 2005. His writings on various aspects of evangelical and fundamentalist religion also led to his being given the opportunity write "A Prophet with Honor: The Billy Graham Story" (William Morrow, 1991), regarded as the most authoritative biography of the famed evangelist. An updated version of this book is in progress [as of July 2998]. In addition to these historical and sociological publications, Professor Martin also wrote "My Prostate and Me: Dealing with Prostate Cancer" (Caddell and Davies, 1994), an account of his own successful bout with this disease. As a result, he has appeared on more than 150 radio and television programs to discuss prostate cancer and regularly counsels with men and families touched by the disease.

More recently, as noted above, Bill Martin has taken an active role in the Baker Institute, organizing and chairing programs and conferences on the impact of religion, particularly various forms of fundamentalism, on public policy, and on ways to reduce the harms associated with drug abuse and drug policy. Many of these papers are available on the Baker Institute website.

Bill Martin received a number of teaching awards during his years as a professor, including the George R. Brown Life Honor Award, which made him ineligible for most additional awards given by Rice. At age sixteen, he decided to become a college professor as a consequence of exposure to particularly inspiring and dedicated teachers he encountered during his freshman year in college. As he enters partial retirement after more than thirty-seven years at Rice, he still regards it as a fine decision.

Brother Frank Tulloch (no idea as to who he was)
Paul Webb (2). Tapes in Los Angeles 8/29/75 (at the round Holiday Inn on the 405, where Santa Monica intersects the 405) Webb was a key figure in convincing UHF stations to air the programs of television evangelists, with Kathryn Kuhlman as his primary client. This was a godsend to UHF stations, many of which were failing. By running the programs, they did not have to sell advertising and had a dependable income. In the early days, before satellite TV and cable station, the stations would "bicycle" the tapes, playing them on their station, then sending them to the next station on the list. In that way, the evangelists had to make only a limited number of tapes.

Billy James Hargis on Tom Snyder Show. 12/28/77, after scandal. Hargis was strong anit-Communist preacher with TV show (Christian Crusade) and American Christian College in Tulsa. He was ruined when a couple whose marriage he performed confessed on their wedding night that both had had sex with Hargis. Others were shown to have been involved. (I had this information before the scandal was revealed in TIME, but I didn't quite know what to do about it. I had planned to include it in a book, but was scooped.)
Hargis interview. After scandal 3/31/76 (3)
Bob Harrington, the Chaplain of Bourbon Street. Funny, popular preacher with ministry on Bourbon St. and on TV. Seemed to be on the rise, but was outed for sexual scandal and alcohol abuse. Lost his family and ministry. Once asked me if I would be interested in ghost-writing books for him I didn't (8 tapes, including an interview with Don Randon, his PR man, and notes.).

William Martin Religious Broadcasting Tapes
C.A. Roberts. 8/4/75. Expert in fundraising through direct mail and other methods. Houston-based. Was once elected head of Southern Baptist Pastors Conference, but did not serve after being accused of murdering his secretary, with whom he was having an affair, and her children. Evidence points to guilt. Had been chaplain of Bill Peterson's Florida football team (Florida, Florida State, Miami - not sure which). When Peterson came to Rice, Roberts came with him as a motivation coach, for one year. Died in auto accident, suspected suicide, drove under an 18 wheeler from parking spot under the overpass at 610 and 59, Houston. A fascinating man whom I got to know fairly well.
Ken Lybarger and Gerald Pope. 7/16/75. Direct mail (I think)

121 William Martin Tapes on "Good News Texas" This was a Texas Baptist saturation evangelism campaign in 1976, involving billboards TV, print ads, etc. 6 tapes of interviews and notes. Resulted in cover story in Texas Monthly. Odd note: the PR man who served as my main contact with the ad company running the program was convicted of being the "Friendly Rapist" in Dallas and served a long sentence in the state penitentiary. I had not suspected him of such behavior.
