Periodical: Our Race

Summary:  From Pat Deveney's database:

Our Race.
Other titles: Our Race News-Leaflet / Our Race Quarterly
1890-1907 Quarterly, irregular
New Haven, CT. Publisher: Our Race Publishing Company. Editor: Charles Adiel Lewis Totten. Succeeded by: Our Race News-Leaflet
1/1, June 1890.

This was originally a series of studies, numbered sequentially and issued very irregularly (two are known to survive). It was succeeded by The Our Race News-Leaflet, October 1893-December 1907. Totten (1851-1908) was a graduate of West Point who taught military history at Yale. He seems to have been an Adventist and had a fascination with the riddles of the Bible and the Great Pyramid which lead him finally to advocate a millennialist form of the Anglo-Israelite doctrine. The first number of the series carried an introduction by C. Piazzi Smyth of Great Pyramid fame. Totten’s doctrines were carried on in Destiny (New Haven/Haverhill). NYPL; Northwestern University; NYS Historical Society; Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley; Connecticut State Library; Yale University Library.
