Dr. Robert H. Countess was born in 1938 near Huntsville, AL. He graduated from Huntsville High School in 1955. After three years in the Army, he began his life-long learning by studying at Bob Jones University where he received his B.A. in Religion and English; M.A. in Religion, and Ph.D. in New Testament Greek. He also received an M.L.S. in Humanities and Philosophy from Georgetown University, and studied at numerous other universities. Receiving his ordination in 1965, he was the pastor of churches in New Jersey, Tennessee, Virginia, and Alabama. He served as Chaplain at Redstone Arsenal from 1980 to 1984, served in the Alabama National Guard, and retired from the U.S. Army as Captain in 1997.

He was a college professor, lecturer, and published author. His zest for learning and adventure took him around the world where he taught and lectured on New Testament Greek in the Netherlands, Ukraine, Australia, South Africa, and throughout Europe. His extracurricular interests led him to help found the Prince William Elders Soccer Club in Manassas, VA, and he was instrumental in founding the Huntsville Adult Soccer League. He was also an active member of the North Alabama Table Tennis Club, and twice represented the state of Alabama at the U.S. Senior Olympics. Among his passions were traveling, old French cars, table tennis, and soccer.

When teaching History 102 at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 1986/87, he was the first (and so far last) professor in the USA to use Arthur Butz's Hoax of the Twentieth Century in his class as required reading. The publisher of this book, the Institute for Historical Review, was rather surprised by Dr. Bob's activities and invited him to their conference. Dr. Bob later became a board member of the Institute.

When Dr. Bob learned about the 1993 master thesis by Joel Hayward on revisionism (The Fate of Jews in German Hands: An Historical Enquiry into the Development and Significance of Holocaust Revisionism), he was so eager to see it published that in 1995 he founded the non-profit publishing company "Theses & Dissertations Press" for this purpose. Although Hayward's thesis never got published, T&DP subsequently turned into a major outlet of Holocaust revisionist books, foremost of the series Holocaust Handbooks under the aegis of Germar Rudolf.

Dr. Bob died on March 18, 2005, at age 67.

More Letters I recently received the second volume of David Irving's Churchill series, which looks magnificent. I now have to find the time to do justice to it. Also, on the latest Journal, unless it's my imagination, the space made available for readers' letters seems to have been reduced significantly. If so, my input would…

Letters to the Editor
