In this recording, James Costen interviews Dr. Abraham H. Prince, a leader in the senate of the south and Presbyterian minister. Born November 1900 in Sumter county South Carolina, he grew up with little education and his parents were cotton farmers.

They discuss various churches that Prince worked for and the politics around some of the churches in the Presbytery. Additionally, he talks about professionalism in the field and the lack of qualified preachers entering the church.
