THOMAS DIXON AUTOGRAPH
Thomas F. Dixon, Jr. was born January 11, 1864 – died April 3, 1946. Dixon was an American Baptist minister, playwright, lecturer, North Carolina state legislator, lawyer, and author, perhaps best known for writing The Clansman — which was to become the inspiration for D. W. Griffith’s film, The Birth of a Nation (1915). Although currently his life and works are discredited by his racism, he was among the most popular speakers and writers of his day. His brother, the popular preacher Amzi Clarence Dixon, was also famous for helping to edit The Fundamentals, a series of articles (and later volumes) influential in fundamentalist Christianity.
