About the Author
Hubert Allen Dixon was born October 3, 1904, at Delrose, Tennessee. Dixon became a Christian at the age of 13, being the only one baptized in a meeting at Delrose preached by J. W. Brents.
He attended were Morgan Prep School, Middle Tennessee University, Freed-Hardeman College, University of Alabama (B.A.). He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Both Harding University and Pepperdine University presented Dixon with an LL.D.
Dixon began preaching in 1936 in Memphis, Tennessee. Dixon preached and did full time work in Tennessee, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Mississippi, Massachusetts, New York, Virginia, California, Illinois, Texas, and Louisiana.
He had a hunger and thirst for a knowledge of the Bible which led him to study it for himself. He read regularly the works of great men who commented on the sacred scriptures, and took advantage of association with great men who were able to teach him. He worked seven years with G. C. Brewer and the Union Avenue Church in Memphis, Tennessee. Dixon considered those years worth more to him than a degree in theology.
In 1950 N. B. Hardeman retired from the presidency of Freed-Hardeman College. The Board of Directors unanimously selected H. A. Dixon as president of the school. Dixon assumed his office as President of Freed-Hardeman College in June of 1950. Dixon followed the pattern of Hardeman in teaching two Bible classes daily, continuing with only one interruption until his death.
