In the late 1960s, he submitted articles entitled Baha’i Beliefs to an African-American newspaper, prepared and published the Baha’i newsletter of east Texas for the RTC, wrote an extensive article on Stewardship and the Hands of the Cause, authored two books on the Hands entitled Lights of Fortitude and Unfurling the Divine Standard, and collaborated with the former Counselor Donald Witzel in his book, Los Escogidos de la Promesa Divina (Las Manos de la Causa de Dios Asociadas con America Latina). Mr. Harper holds a Masters degree in Accounting from the University of North Texas and professionally is a tax consultant and preparer for Americans residing overseas.
