    This is the first biography of the Reverend Doctor William Archer Rutherfoord Goodwin, the minister who persuaded John D. Rockefeller, Jr. to resurrect 18th century Williamsburg. It is drawn largely from Goodwin's still private files, Colonial Williamsburg and Rockefeller files.

    From Publishers Weekly:
    The transformation of Williamsburg from a decaying roadside nowhere to the meticulously restored Colonial destination it is today was the work of Reverend Doctor William Archer Rutherfoord Goodwin, a man with a vision and a knack for cajoling the wealthiest men in the U.S. to help. When he became rector of the Bruton Parish Church in 1903, Williamsburg's remaining colonial buildings had nearly all fallen into disrepair. After successfully returning Bruton to its elegant 18th-century state, Goodwin began working with the William and Mary College in the mid-1920s to restore Williamsburg's main Duke of Gloucester Street. The revenue from visitors helped endow the college as well as rescue some fine 18th-century structures. Goodwin knew where the money was, and his astute wooing of Henry Ford and John D. Rockefeller Jr. led to the latter initially pledging $3 million, then continuing his support through the Depression and up to the reverend's death in 1939.

    A Colonial Williamsburg architectural historian, Carl Lounsbury expertly details the development of Bruton Parish Church from its first form in 1663 through its eighteenth-century additions, to its twentieth-century restorations. Lounsbury explains in layman’s language, the construction, forms and features of the building—there’s a short, simple and handy glossary of technical terms at the front—and provides material not as readily found elsewhere about men and women who have worshipped beneath its buttressed roof. Lounsbury’s highly readable text describes Bruton’s defining role in the city’s colonial renewal, and 49 of its 139 pages are illustrated with crisp diagrams, drawings and maps, as well as reproductions of historic paintings, postcards and photos.
